Using Magnets to Load Quilts

edited July 2013 in Ask An HQ Expert
Hi, I would like to use magnets to attach a practice piece to the metal bars on my table. The magnets being considered are either small round or a long magnetic bar.

Are these safe to use with my HQ Avante?

Thank you.


  • Dear cnw0829,
    Yes, you may use magnets to hold your quilt to the poles. They won't harm your HQ18 Avante.

  • How about the pro stitcher and magnetic bars
  • Sdebaun,

    Yes, you can use magnetic bars with the HQ Pro-Stitcher. They will not harm the machine or the Pro-Stitcher.

    Good luck,
