This machine is a quilter's dream! I've used and loved it for the past 4 years and it works just like it did when it was new. I'm only selling it because I'm upgrading to a different type of machine and don't need (or have the space for) two quilting machines. Can easily handle up to a king-sized quilt. It is designed strictly for free-motion quilting. It came with an open-toed stippling foot and I am also including a ruler foot that I bought to go with it (an extra $100 value!). Let me know if you'd like to come by and test-drive it.

The AQ18 has all the great features of an Artistic Quilter Long arm in a large frame, without requiring all the space in your home or hours of standing to finish a free motion quilt.
