We use “Super Clamps” to load and unload the quilt on our machine frame. This is a fast and easy way to load your quilt. No pins or zipped leaders are needed to load a quilt on the quilt frame. Using “Super Clamps” allows you to easily reload a quilt that has been partially quilted.

Needles – Are included with your rental.

Thread- To ensure proper operation of our machine, we require the use of Glide brand cone thread. We carry cones of Glide Thread, in a variety of colours and can order any colour not on hand.  NO OTHER THREAD WILL BE PERMITTED TO BE USED ON THE MACHINE.

Bobbins – Only M Class Bobbins slotted for Handi Quilter Machines are used and are available for use within your rental period. There is a bobbin winder to wind bobbins for your rental time.
