|HQ AVANTE 18||May 27, 2011||Gail Oates||Massey Drive Ne CA|
|I bought my HQ Avante 18 package in April, 2011 after several discussions with Ron at Sewing Machines Plus. This was my retirement gift to myself and a large purchase item but after talking to Ron about the various long arm quilting machines I was quite comfortable with buying the Avante 18 HQ package. It arrived in quick order especially having to be shipped to Newfoundland, Canada and was in perfect condition on arrival. Hats Off to HQ for their packageing of the machine and studio table. With the help of my husband (Walter) we had the studio table/frame and machine assembled in a few hours. We had no problems with the instructions at all!!! This machine FLOATS on the table. I was quite surprized how easy it is to use. Love the laser light for pattern quilting. I am very happy with the Avante 18 and studio table (12 Ft) and very pleased with the staff at Sewing Machines Plus. I would highly recommend this dealer and this long arm quilting machine. They offer Great Service and Excellents Products. We will be dealing with them again in the future.|

|I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your teaching us the HQ Avante Quilter operations and software at the shop. The hospitality of the people at the shop and the knowledge of the products made me know that I made the right decision in buying my Avante HQ from Sewing Machines Plus was a good decision. I have only good things to say about the company and everyone's knowledge of the products that are sold in the store. I plan to continue to do business with Sewing Machines Plus and wish you the best, this is a great company!|

|This is my second machine that I have ordered from Sewing Machines Plus. I wanted to upgrade and they took my other machine in on trade, which made it possible for me to purchase my Avant. Getting it financed for three years make it affordable for me. I got material stuck in my machine and it was out of time...they paid to have it shipped back and returned to me free of charge. The people was very helpful and thanks to them I am back to quilting my quilts and the machine is working great. Service is great!!!!|

|Great Machine & Dealer||May 30, 2010||Diane Mirl||Mesa Ar US|
|As with most people, I was hesitant to make such a large purchase online and to further add to my concerns, I live in Arizona. I visited numerous local retailers first. I operated the machine and asked all the relevant questions. After I was convinced I was buying this machine, I called Sewing Machines Plus. I was not only sold on the machine but I was sold on the company! Received the machine fast and in perfect working order. Any questions on the operation of the machine were answered in detail by a simple phone call. I hope this review settles any hesitation you might have on purchasing a machine of this caliber online. Great product, great service, great company.|
|HQ Avante 18||May 27, 2010||Cathy L. Thomas||Gordonville TX US|
|I bought my HQ in April and must admit I was a bit reluctant to order from a website I wasn't familiar with. The more I talked with the folks at Sewing Machines Plus the more I felt like they were family. I purchased the machine and was flown out for training. The training experience was fantastic. I immediately felt completely at ease with the machine. The assembly of the studio frame and machine was completed in less than a half day with the help of my dear husband. This machine glides so easily both sideways and back and forth (almost like it "floats"), and I am pleasantly surprised to find myself loving to "free motion" quilt! I am very pleased with the strength of the table and the take-up poles, and by how easy it is to adjust the height off the floor. The machine itself is very simplistic and easy to use. I am confident I made the right choice, and couldn't be happier with my machine or my dealer! I highly recommend both this machine and my dealer!|
|Ease of Use||May 20, 2010||Karen Brady||Palm Coast Fl US|
|I've had my HQ setup for a couple of weeks now and just love it! The ease of handling and the smoothness of the tracking is unbeatable. This dealer was absolutely tops to deal with and I had my prize in less than a week. For anybody wanting the ultimate in the quilting experience this is the one!|
