The BERNINA Q Series Sit-Down Models – Q 16, Q 16 PLUS and Q 20

Quilt and pattern designer Amanda Murphy talks about the BERNINA Q 16.
Easy adjustments at your fingertipsAmanda Murphy, Quilt and pattern designer

Amanda Murphy has a passion for designing and creating quilts on her BERNINA Q 16. While her studio is small, the roomy quilting space of the Q 16 adds convenience and ease to her creative process. Like Amanda, you’ll love the fast 2,000 stitches per minute as well as the three modes of the BERNINA Stitch Regulator – all without having to press the foot control.

Small Spaces. Big Ideas.

Small Spaces. Big Ideas.

The BERNINA Q 16 and Q 20 are longarm quilting machines and only differ in the length of the throat space and the maximum sewing space.

  • Q 20 has a throat space of 20 inches
  • Q 16 & Q 16 PLUS have a throat space of 16 inches

Both machines can be paired with a standard or height-adjustable cabinet or with a foldable, height-adjustable table. The BERNINA Q 16 PLUS and Q 20 are compatible with the Bernina Studio Frame if an upgrade to a Quilt Frame is desired.
