HQ Quilting Machine
During the 2006/2007 season, the Handi-Quilter Company in Bountiful, Utah, loaned Quilters 2 an HQ16 quilting machine.  The purpose of the loan was to facilitate the production of charity quilts.  The machine is capable of quilting anything from placemat size to king bed size items. Stitch patterns can be produced using either free hand design, or predesigned patterns using pantographs or groovy boards.  We also have rulers that can help achieve many different designs.

Quilters 2 provides instruction to members who want to learn to use the Handi-Quilter machine. Once a person has completed the Quilters 2 training course, they are allowed to begin quilting charity quilts. 

The rules for machine use evolve as dictated by experience and results.  We currently serve just under 20 local charities. We make almost 300 quilts a year for these charities. Check out our Charities page for a current list and a short description of each charity.

In late 2018, Quilters 2 members worked to acquire a replacement for our aging machine. We obtained a new Handi-Quilter machine, the Avante model. Our members are enjoying the ease of use of the new machine.
