Introducing the Bernina Q16 longarm quilting machine and Folding Table. A longarm machine designed with more space for the quilter. There are 16 inches from the needle to the neck of the machine.  So there’s much more space and height than you’ll find on a regular domestic machine. It also comes with a Built-in BSR – Bernina Stitch Regulator.

Bernina Q16 Longarm Quilting Machine and Folding Table

Team the Q16 with the adjustable folding table for a convenient solution. When open the table measures 47″ by  35″ of smooth working surface. You can also adjust the table height to 28″, 30″ or 32″. And then you can fold it all up and store it away.

I’ve added a photo of the table folded up and stored under the stairs in the shop. So you get the idea of it folded away.
