Handi Quilter Simply Sixteen Longarm Quilting Machine


We like to say that the HQ Simply Sixteen is about half the size and half the price of a conventional longarm….except you can still finish quilts of any size.

Membership in the Exclusive QIMT Longarmy

Most of our owners would say that the biggest advantage of purchasing a Handi Quilter machine from Quilting Is My Therapy is membership in the exclusive Longarmy group. This community of Handi Quilter owners is ran by me, Angela Walters, and provides the perfect place to connect, learn and even encourage each other. Membership in the Longarmy includes:

Monthly meetings– As a member of  the Longarmy,  you have access to monthly owners meeting. These meetings are a perfect way to learn as Angela teaches or demonstrates a technique or take-away, ask questions about your machine or the machine quilting process in general, show off your finished quilts, and to immerse yourself in a community of quilters who love machine quilting as much as you do.

Online Group– If you don’t live in the Kansas City area or can’t make it to the monthly meetings, you still can receive support and encouragement on our private Longarmy Facebook group. This is a great way to stay connected with other owners, ask questions, or watch our monthly meetings live.

Events– We love our longarms but we love hanging out with each other as well! Several times a year we have exclusive Longarmy events including free retreats, sew days, and parties.

Discounts– We want to be your go-to place for all things longarm related! That’s why we offer our owners 20% off longarm accessories and supplies as long as they own their machines. This includes any Handi Quilter longarm accessories, machine quilting thread of all types, and machine quilting rulers. This savings really adds up!

Business Mentoring– As a professional machine quilter, Angela knows firsthand that this is the most profitable part of the industry. But it can be hard to know what to do to get started or how to grow your business. Once a month, Angela hosts a “Business of Machine Quilting’ mentoring group. Whether you are already in business, just starting or even considering it, you can come to the meetings and join the discussion.
