    Does anybody out there have or use the HQ 18 Avante Long Arm Starter Kit. If so what's your opinion of this machine. The link is www.handiquilter.com. Like to here what you have to say.

    Yes, I just got mine 2 weeks ago. I think it is the best longarm I've played with!!! check out my post ---- http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-117865-1.html. Yes, i've used another longarm of my own and yes, I've taken classes on other longarms, but THIS one is so smooth and so easy to move it's unbelievable. I couldn't have done that quilt on mine -- or, I should say, I COULD have done it but it wouldn't have looked so good!

    They provide a great bobbin winder that's so easy to use it's unbelievable....and it fills the bobbin totally full. My other machine seemed to only fill the bobbin about 3/4 full.

    Of, course, I've only had it a week and haven't had any problems, but I did some research and found NOTHING negative about it!!!

    I vote for you to get it!!! :)

    I am in the market for a LA machine.... I have not made up my mind yet which one... I too appreciate this information as the HQ is one system I'm looking at.

    This board is chock full of information... all you have to do is ask.

    Thank you.
