"I had been longarm quilting for 3 years before I decided to try computerized quilting. I was using another brand of machine at the time but after comparing systems opted to change and go with the HQ Pro-Stitcher and the Handi Quilter Fusion. I couldn't be happier, like a kid in a candy shop! I was always frustrated that my free-hand patterns never came out the same, but my quilting is almost perfect now!" - MaryAnn Blackham

The HQ Pro-Stitcher® quilting system integrates Handi Quilter’s world-class quilting machines with the latest computer technology to help you finish more quilts. HQ Pro-Stitcher guides the machine to quilt any design you want to use, create, or customize. It works with all Handi Quilter stitch-regulated quilting machines: HQ Sixteen, HQ18 Avanté, and HQ24 Fusion.

Using integrated HQ technology, the HQ Pro-Stitcher offers the best of both worlds: computerized quilting and free-motion quilting in the same package.
