What to Expect to Pay for a Home Quilting Machine
There is really no set price that you will pay for a home quilting machine or machine quilting thread, as the prices will vary from one brand and model to another, but as long as you figure out your budget beforehand and know how much money you have available to work with, you should have no problems and should be able to find the perfect home quilting machine for you.
For a basic home quilting machine you can expect to pay anywhere from three to four hundred dollars, and for the more feature packed ones, thousands of dollars.
To give you a better idea of the different machines that are out there and how much they cost, here are a few of the most popular quilting machine models and what you can expect to pay for them.
Janome 1600P-DB High Speed Sewing Machine
This is one home quilting machine that you will definitely want to consider. It is very popular, especially for businesses because it sews a straight stitch at 1,600 stitches per minute, the fastest on the market today.
An extra large 9” x 5” work area on this machine gives you room for the largest projects, and so whether you are sewing a top or quilting a heavy blanket, you will have all the room that you need. From the new “Liquid Response” foot control to the pre-tension system, this machine offers everything you need for fast, successful quilting and sewing.
Pfaff Creative 2170
You get on-screen customizing, so you just need to touch the design that you want to embroider to see it appear larger, in color and proportional to the size of the embroidery hoop. After this you will be able to customize it directly on-screen to make it uniquely yours.
You can create embroideries of unlimited size, and you do not have to use templates and copy the outline of your design on your fabric to connect your designs after rehooping.
Keep in mind that these are just two of the many different quilting machines that you can choose from, and so you really need to take some time so that you can see what else is out there and find the machine that is best for you.
