If you love free-motion quilting, the Artistic Quilter Sit Down 16" will give you the freedom to accomplish any quilting project. With throat space of sixteen inches you have the room to work on quilts as big as king-size. The included table is easy to set up and take down. Adjust the height of the table from sitting to counter height and you are ready to begin quilting. 

The innovative TrueStitch Stitch Regulator system is the best way to ensure your stitches are even as it regulates the stitch length automatically, regardless of your sewing speed. The small controller easily attaches to your fabric and communicates with the AQSD-16 as you free motion quilt.
