Handi Quilter’s HQ Sweet Sixteen is simply the best way for quilters to tackle projects with a sit-down machine. With the introduction of optional TruStitch, quilters are now able to create quilt designs with beautifully even stitches.
If you love to free-motion machine quilt but struggle to fit your project in the small throat space of a domestic sewing machine, you’ll love the HQ Sweet Sixteen®. Sixteen inches of throat space gives you room to quilt even a king-size quilt. The smooth surface of the included table enables your project to glide under the needle. The powerful motor quilts with ease and stitches up to 1500 stitches-per-minute. Choose your three favorite speed settings, on the easy-to-use color touch screen and let the machine remember them.

|HQ Sweet 16||Mar 13, 2016||Teresa Rutherford||Roy WA|
|Love the HQ Sweet 16! Set up was simple; a friend and I put everything together and I was quilting in less than two hours. I am currently working on a King size quilt and the machine operates smoothly. I highly recommend this machine for anyone who does not have the space for a long-arm. Very happy, satisfied customer!|

|HQ Sweet 16 Quilting Machine||Apr 3, 2015||Vivian Stein||Clyde Ne US|
|I really like this machine, it is easy to use, easy to set up, with another person. I bought the extensions for the table with it and they are perfect. Setting down to Quilt is a great way to relax and really get into your work. I would recommend this Quilter to anyone interested in free motion quilting.|
|Great machine||Jun 22, 2014||Frankie Bumgarner||Point pleasant WV US|
|This is my first long arm machine I have ever owned. I had 5 quilt panels to make each of my grand kids a quilt. I finished all of them in one day. I enjoy making quilts and giving them away to people . They are so happy when they receive one. This machine was so easy to use after watching the DVD that came with it. I also purchased the hideaway table it was fully assembled except for the wheels it makes storing the large machine very nice . I also love the free financing for 48 months. I was paying out so much money having my quilts completed. And waiting several weeks to get it back.|

|I ordered the HQ Sweet Sixteen from Sewing Machines Plus. What an awesome experience ordering...they made it so easy and shipped it the SAME DAY! This machine is so sweet and easy to set up and get running. It took me a little to get the tension just right and then I was off and running. I ordered the stitch regulator package, and I am really glad I did. The stitch regulator makes me stitches more consistent. If you are looking to order a Long Arm this is the one and you can't beat the price and customer service from Sewing Machine Plus!!!|
|Fabulous Machine!||Sep 2, 2013||Melody DeGraziano||Fawn Grove PA US|
|I bought my HQ Sweet 16 in May and haven't stopped using it. it was so easy to set up, and the on line tutorials made learning a snap! I had no experience machine quilting and have already quilted 5 baby quilts and a single bed quilt. My work just keeps getting better. I recommend this machine to anyone who lacks space but wants a quality quilting experience.|
|ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!||May 14, 2013||Jo Buechler||Tekamah Ne US|
|Customer service was really great, I received my new HANDI QUILTER SWEET SIXTEEN within DAYS!!! All was delivered in perfect shape, on time and easy to set up. (And I got it about $400 less than the local quilt shop that carried it!) The Sweet Sixteen is fun to use, easy to learn, and I am loving every minute I get to play on it! I can see there will be many quilts and wall hangings in the future under the Christmas tree and I will enjoy making every one of them--it won't be a hassle like it was before! Thank you SMP!|
|Love it!||Sep 25, 2012||Beverley Tekben||Slate Hill NY US|
|Machine and table took less than 1/2 hour to set-up and begin quilting. Everything was perfect. The Customer Service was excellent. Helpful and so knowledgeable, I was amazed. I would check with them if you are ever looking into buying sewing machines and accessories. Thank you SMP.|
