Being a quilter, a maker, a creator is serious business. When it’s time to make, your creativity deserves the support of a great machine. Contact us to discover the best longarm for you!
The Q 16
Missing out on a longarm machine while still struggling to squeeze a large quilt through the small throat of your domestic machine, all because of limited space? Not anymore! The BERNINA Q 16 is the longarm machine made for quilters who need more quilting space — a spacious 16 inches — than their domestic machine offers. Pair it with a foldable, height-adjustable table (as shown here) and it’s the perfect solution for a small space: sturdy, spacious enough for your biggest projects, and discreetly tucks away — only 9 inches wide — when not in use. Additional table options include the standard cabinet, elevated cabinet or lift table.
The Q 20
With the BERNINA Q 20 Sit-Down Longarm Machine, free-motion quilting is child’s play. The generous long arm depth and height provide ample space for managing your larger quilts. It features a 20 in. throat space for big quilt projects; unique digital thread tension adjustment; easy threading, independent bobbin winder and stitch regulation for perfect stitches. And with high-speed precision stitching up to 2,200 stitches per minute, you will complete more quilts quicker than ever.
The naturally illuminated working area offers you sufficient lighting even in darker rooms and perfect illumination of the quilting area, with 50 bright LED lights along the throat space of the machine and above the needle giving you enhanced visibility.
The BERNINA Q 20 comes standard as a sit-down model machine — the elegant Koala table (see photo below) is designed to handle the speed and weight of the Q 20 with ease for optimal performance. Note that the new BERNINA Q 16 PLUS and Q 20 are compatible with the BERNINA Studio Frame if an upgrade to a Quilt Frame is desired.
