Qnique 16X Manual Longarm and Frame Combos
Yes, you can afford to try longarm quilting with the Qnique 16X Manual!
The Grace Qnique 16X Manual is the most basic and modestly priced longarm Grace Company offers. This Manual-Mode longarm can only stitch at a constant selected speed.
The illuminated Q above the handlebars displays your speed setting and can be adjusted up or down with the push of a button on the handles.
What comes with the Qnique 16X Manual Longarm:
- 16-inch longarm capable of stitching 1700 stitches per minute
- 3 M sized bobbins, bobbin case, and pack of needles
- Standard quilting foot
- Front handlebars and LED monitor to select constant speed
This entry-level longarm is lower priced because it doesn't have a stitch regulator.
This means the machine will not change speed to match how fast you're moving. Your stitches can get bigger and smaller if you move the machine too fast or slow.
To create pretty stitches on the Qnique 16X Manual, you'll need to learn how to move the machine at a steady pace to match the speed you've selected. This is very much like learning how to free motion quilt on a home sewing machine.
The main advantage of purchasing the Qnique 16X Manual is the affordable price.
More about the Grace Qnique 16X Manual
The Grace Qnique 16 X Manual has a powerful motor capable of quilting 1700 stitches per minute and the needle area is illuminated with bright LED lights so you can clearly see your quilt.
Two spool pins are located on the top of the machine along with a built-in bobbin winder so you can quickly wind the large M sized bobbins and get back to quilting.

Which features are the most important?
I believe the size of your longarm is the most important feature. This is why I've listed the graph above with the longarm size and the quilt block size.
This is the maximum size quilt block you will be able to quilt in one pass.
That means you don't have to fiddle with the quilt to advance it, or split your quilting design in half. How creative do you want to be across your quilt blocks? What size of block do you tend to make the most?
If you're going to invest in a longarm, make it's big enough to quilt your favorite size blocks in one pass!
