HandiQuilter Avante 18

It was a hard decision to make, but I've decided to sell my barely used HandiQuilter Avante 18 long arm and frame.  I've had it since 2011.  I suffered some health issues in the last three years, and I finally have come to the conclusion that this is not the machine for me.  I make small quilts.  I would rather someone else enjoy its capabilities.  So, if you are interested and live in Southern California, please contact me. email is in the right column.

18" wide harp.  It sews beautifully.
Here is the set up in my studio.  The legs are totally adjustable

I bought a pair of Micro Handles that I've never even taken out of the box

A couple of boxes with more frame extensions, and bars

another view

Bobbin winder.  Did I mention that it has a really big bobbin?

Wheels for the frame, still in the box. 
I have the books, needles, bobbins, etc. Happy Dance!  SOLD!


  1. Aww. I hope the machine has a happy new home - and soon you'll have extra space waiting for your next adventures!

    1. this is a wonderful machine and Jamie is offering the deal of a lifetime! I love mine which I bought as a demo 2 years ago at Festival in Houston

  2. Oh how I wish I lived closer. I would buy it in a heartbeat. A heart beat. Good luck, sister!
