Get ready for a new love of your life! The Humble APQS George is so much more that just a sit down quilting machine. He uses the same sewing components & belt-driven technology as our other machines but in a smaller, more basic package.
It is a fast, affordable way to move into professional long-arm machine quilting without sacrificing the APQS quality.
This sit down machine has a 20″ throat space and comes with a Lifetime warranty. That means you’ve got plenty of room to get your quilt under the needle- without the tugging, pushing and pulling of a standard domestic sewing machine.
More info and pictures can be found at George’s website. George comes with a portable table that makes him easy to take with you to quilting retreats too! Or you can just store George in your closet and get him out when you need him.
George is $6,650

You’ll love how George is positioned in the table. He is off to the side to give you maximum room to maneuver the quilt. Some sit down machines are set up so you are pushing your quilting right into the bulk of the machine’s throat. George gives you all the room you need to take control of your free motion quilting.
APQS George Features
- Synchronous timing belt drive - APQS machines are precisely held in time through our belt drive technology. Building a machine that will not fall out of time means your tension and stitch integrity will be the same for the life of your machine.
- Single thread disk tensioner - Having only one place to set tension means our machines can run a wide range of even the most finicky threads, opening up your creative options.
- Self lubricating bushings - The amount of oil required to care for an APQS machine is a fraction of what other quilting machines need, making maintenance simple and easy.
- Quiet, enclosed DC motor - APQS combines technology with sleek design to give you a beautiful machine with the horsepower you need. Our integrated electronics and motor are tucked away behind the clean lines of our machines.
- Variable needle speed - Different types of quilting require an increase in needle speed to match the complexity of the design. A touch of the button gives you the control you need without having to navigate through a series of menus.
- Interchangeable hopping foot - Change out the machine’s hopping foot to an open toe design! Your machine comes ready to accept different feet for the different kinds of quilting you do.
- Auto needle positioner - When you come to a halt your APQS machine will not stop partially in the fabric – it will either stop in the full up or full down position, depending on your preference.
- Single stitch button, two position - Whether you like to tack your starting/ending stitches or knot & bury, you can control it all with the touch of a button.
- LED lighting - Bright, clear lighting increases accuracy.
- Your choice of Smart Bobbin© (L size) or Big Bobbin© (M size) - You get a choice of the size bobbin you prefer so your machine is specifically made to your tastes and style of quilting.
