Bernina Q16 Long Arm Quilting Machine with a Height Adjustable Folding Table

In stock


The Bernina Q16 and Q20 are longarm quilting machines, and only differ in the length of the throat space and the maximum sewing space.

Q20 has a throat space of 20 inches

Q16 has a throat space of 16 inches

Both machines can be paired with a standard or height-adjustable cabinet or with a foldable, height-adjustable table. We have a Q16 demonstration model available to book at our Bury St Edmunds store.

The foldable table is an affordable and sophisticated solution for handling the speed, weight and performance of the Q16 and Q20. The set up is fast and easy in minutes — no tools required. Fabrics glide easily over the smooth surface of the table. If the space for quilting is limited, the Foldable Table can be stored in a simple and spacesaving way. With a simple manual adjustment of the legs, the table can be adjusted to three heights:

28in (71cm)

30in (76cm)

32in (81cm)

Table size: 36in x 45in (91cm x 115cm)
