Sweet Sixteen for sale…nearly new!

Update:  machine is sold.  About a year ago I took delivery of a wonderful machine:  the HQ Sweet 16 sit-down quilting machine.  It has both regular and ruler feet, all the regular parts.  In outstanding working order, well maintained, clean.  I’ve got all the original packing materials for transporting it to you.   I’m also including 14 M-class bobbins (empty) and a bunch of appropriate machine needles.  I will say the HQ dealer and tech support is OUTSTANDING.  I’ve decided to upgrade, and need to sell this one to make way for the next beastie.  MSRP is $5,599. For sale for $3750 plus shipping.  If you live within a 4 1/2 hour drive of Camden, Maine, I’ll deliver to your driveway free of charge!

Working on the lighter petals on the big peony quilt. It will finish about 45x55 I think.....depends on how much I trim off and/or turn to the back.

    Why are you selling? I have an Innova, 10′ with stitch regulator, wheels, several feet. Just not using it because it is a stand up. Although, I am able to stand, I’m not very comfortable with it. Totally different machine. LOTS more $$$. EXCELLENT support. I looked at the Sweet Sixteen booth. Asked for help, was pointed toward a machine. How are they with support?

    Hi Sarah,
    I’m very interested. I live about 6 hours from you. We could meet halfway. I’m going to read up a little more on the machine, but I’ve been dithering about whether to buy one for two years. Good price and there is a dealer about an hour away from me. Will it fit in the trunk of a car?

  3. Amanda Says:

    Hi Sarah,

    I just wanted to see if the machine was still for sale?

    Thanks very much.

    Hi Sara,
    Is your Sweet 16 still available? I live in Nashua, New Hampshire. Please let me know.
    Thanks,
    Rose R.

    Rose, I am sorry to say that I did indeed sell it (I’ll put a note on the top of the blogpost). However, I have a friend who is thinking of selling hers. She works small, and has decided she’d rather have the space than the machine in her small sewing studio. Would you like me to forward your email to her? Her name is Gail G. N., and lives a couple miles from me here in mid-coast Maine, so it’s not too much of a trek.
