Handi Quilter Avante LONG-ARM QUILTING MACHINE RENTAL
Renter must participate in a beginner long arm class before renting the machine.
-The class will be limited to no more than 1 person.
-Will cover a 3 hour time period.
-You will need to bring a small quilt of your own no larger than a crib size to quilt with your backing and batting. You will be sewing a large pantograph or free motion meandering on your quilt or table runner due to time constraints. Please keep in mind you are practicing and not quilting something that you have in mind for a gift.
-The cost $60.
In class you will learn how to thread the machine, how to fill a bobbin, how to layer the backing, batting and quilt properly on the machine, how to use pantographs or free motion, how to start and stop the machine.
THE CERTIFICATION CLASS FEE IS $60. THIS COVERS THE 3 HOURS OF CLASS AND PRACTICE TIME.
PLEASE CALL FOR AVAILABLE TIMES.

Machine needles - $1.50 ea per broken/bent needles

Batting: You can bring in your own batting or purchase it from us. Just ask and we can help you find what will work best with your project.
WHAT IF I CAN’T FINISH IN ONE SESSION?
It will depend on how fast and how heavily you quilt. Once you’re more experienced you should be able to quilt a full-to-queen size quilt with an all-over pattern in a single session.
WHAT IF MY QUILT ISN’T FINISHED AT THE END OF MY SESSION?
You may also be able to extend your session if no one else has reserved the machine. (7.50 per half hour past session time)
MAY I RENT THE MACHINE FOR LESS THAN A FULL SESSION?
The Machine can only be rented for a full session. However, when it is not in use, we’re happy to let you use it for less than a full session on a walk-in basis. The minimum charge for this type of rental is $25. This covers one hour of use. Then every 30 minutes after the first hour is charged at a rate of $7.50.
will be available when you rent the machine. The cost is $15 and will include the following: loading of the backing, batting and quilt top onto the machine, full bobbins will be loaded for you and the machine will be threaded with thread color of your choice. The thread, quilt top, backing and batting must be dropped off a minimum of one day before your rental time. This is an optional service but it does cut down on the time to load your quilt during your rental when you can be sewing.
If it has been over six months since your last rental, you will be required to take the beginner class again.
If you have previously taken the introductory class at another shop, please call about waiving the certification class.
Please do not wear very loose fitted clothing, dangling necklaces, tie back long hair and no scarves.
No food or drinks near the quilt or the machine.
Tools and pins should not be on the quilt or near the machine.
Please clean your work area before the end of your rental time.
There is a $30 cancellation free if cancelled within 24 hours. This is because someone else may have wanted to use the machine on your date and could not because you booked that time.
You may send a substitute quilter in your place if: it is less than 24 hours before your appointment, if you notify The Quilted Nest and they have taken the introductory class within 6 months.
No one else may accompany you during your session.
Session includes one needle. Additional needles may be purchased separately.
