The HQ Capri is a BIG machine for SMALL spaces. Free-motion quilting was never easier, and your stitches will be PERFECT with the HQ InSight Table with built-in HQ InSight stitch regulation. She’s a stationary longarm quilting machine with a roomy 18-inch throat space. Tons of room to accommodate those large quilts. And she’s FAST at 2,200 stitches per minute.
With InSight stitch regulation you can choose from 4-22 stitches per inch to get just the right look for any quilting style or design. It takes away the fear of finishing when you know your stitches will all be perfect. You can concentrate on your design work when you don’t have to worry about keeping your stitches even. As Forrest Gump would say, “One less thing to worry about!”
Light in ALL the Right Places:
The HQ Capri has a fabulous lighting system with an LED light ring at the needle and throat space lighting that lets you see all your beautiful stitches as you quilt. Plus, you can adjust the lighting for the specific needs of your work. We all like to have control, right? There also is bobbin area lighting that’s perfect when cleaning and oiling the bobbin race.
Speaking of cleaning, the bobbin area of Capri features a dam that allows for use of canned air to quickly and easily clean away the lint and get back to quilting fast. Just like all our machines, the Capri only requires a drop of oil on the bobbin race every time you change the bobbin. No other lubrication maintenance is required by the quilter.
Save on Floor Space, Splurge on Throat Space:
Even though the HQ Capri has four times the quilting space of the average home sewing machine (18 inches of throat space and 8 inches of vertical space), it will fit into even the smallest of quilting studios. The InSight table measures 32″ x 36″. If you have more space and would like additional table surface to support large quilts, optional 18″ x 32″ table extensions are available.
