1600 stitches per minute plus a 9x6-inch sewing area equals the Husqvarna Mega Quilter. Many quilters enjoy piecing and finishing their quilts by hand. Some machine quilters are content with the results their regular sewing machine provides. Quilters who want speed and consistency, though, can benefit from the Husqvarna Mega Quilter. The machine promises perfect stitches on all types of fabric with features such as the automatic stitch control, thread pre-tension adjustment and adjustable presser foot pressure Stitch speed and length are adjustable.
If 1600 stitches sounds too fast, you can decrease it to your liking. Stitch length can be adjusted up to 6 millimeters - that's one-quarter of an inch! By the way, a built in sewing ruler will measure your work in both inches and metrics. Another important feature of the Husqvarna Mega Quilter is the machine's convenient knee lift.
The knee lever allows the quilter to keep both hands on the quilting project at all times. Quilters will also enjoy the auto thread trimmer on the Husqvarna Mega Quilter. Just push a button and thread trimming is complete and quick! There is no need to worry about the thickness of your quilt when using the Husqvarna Mega Quilter. With features like automatic stitch control, thread pre-tension adjustment and adjustable presser foot pressure, the machine allows the quilter to truly accommodate the needs of each quilting project. When Husqvarna created the Mega Quilter, the company wanted to give quilters a product that would be useful and user-friendly.
The Mega Quilter is easy on the ears, sewing quietly without vibration. Its simultaneous bobbin winding feature allows you to keep working on your quilt while a separate bobbin winding motor prepares the next bobbin. Use the Husqvarna Mega Quilter with the "Next Generation Quilt Frame" for a professional, convenient way to complete your quilt. The frame is available in two sizes (60 inch and 120 inch). Simply roll your bottom layer of fabric, batting and quilt top onto the frame for professional results! If you are intrigued by the Husqvarna Mega Quilter, find a dealer in your area and schedule a demonstration. Ask your favorite fabric store if they recommend a Husqvarna-Viking dealer.
If not, go to the Internet to complete your search. Once you have located a dealer for the Husqvarna Mega Quilter, set up a time for the demonstration. Ask if the dealer also services the equipment. Buying from a dealer that services equipment on the spot means you get your machine back faster than if it has to be shipped elsewhere for routine maintenance or repairs.
Ask plenty of questions about the machine. If the dealer replies, "I don't know. We don't sell many of these," think about finding another dealer. Dealers who do sell a lot of the Husqvarna Mega Quilter will have a broader knowledge of the machine. Most authorized dealers will have comparable prices on the machines. What you will really be shopping around for is a knowledgeable dealer that you would enjoy doing business with.
How will you fund your Husqvarna Mega Quilter purchase? If you are thinking about charging it to a credit card, ask the dealer about in-house financing. Many sewing machine dealers are making very attractive purchase options. You may stumble across a zero interest for 15 month offer! Resist the temptation to buy your Husqvarna Mega Quilter at a greatly reduced rate from an online auction. If the price sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Besides, when you buy a used model from an auction, you void the machine's original warranty. When you invest in a quilting machine, it's best to buy from an authorized dealer.
