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 pre-designed patterns using pantographs or groovy boards.  There are also rulers that can help achieve many designs.
Quilters 2 provides instruction to interested members to learn how to use the Handi-Quilter machine. Once a person has completed the Quilters 2 training course for using the machine, they are allowed to begin quilting charity quilts.  
The rules of machine use are ever evolving as dictated by experience and results. The charities we serve are ever evolving as well.  We currently serve just under 20 local charities a year. We make almost 300 quilts a year for these charities.Check out our Charities page for a list of them and a description.
In late 2018, Quilters 2 members decided the time had come to replace it.   The members worked to acquire a replacement and obtained a new Handi-Quilter machine, their Avante model. The members are enjoying the new machines ease of use.
