Is your project too large to quilt on your home sewing machine? Come and rent one of the machines at Urban Spools so you can finish your project! You will be renting the HQ 18 Avante .
The Avante is a longarm machine in the studio at Urban Spools. You do not have to baste your quilts prior to loading them on this machine. In order to use the Avante, you must take the Intro to LongArm Quilting class. This class is 3 hours and you will learn how to thread the machine, set the tension, wind a bobbin, load a quilt and basic machine quilting techniques. You will practice on fabric provided by Urban Spools. During the practice time, several different techniques will be demonstrated. We use the Red Snapper loading system to speed up the time required to load your quilt, allowing you to “get stitching”! Sign up for class.
The class is $150 and once you have taken the class, you may rent the machine for $75 per day. There will be a $10 thread charge per project. You may bring your own thread, but it will be subject to approval for use on the machine. Urban Spools has Quilters Dream 100% cotton batting available by the yard as well as 108” wide backings.
