About IntelliQuilter

The IntelliQuilter (IQ) is a computer guidance system for longarm and midarm quilting machines. It is an after-market add-on that does not replace any existing parts of the quilting machine. IQ consists of two motors that drive the machine head, and a tablet PC running the IQ software on a Linux platform. There are no additional cables, pulleys, wires, etc on the longarm table. It is, quite simply, the most sophisticated and technologically advanced computer guidance system available for longarm quilters.

We travel to your studio or home to install IntelliQuilter on your machine. The installation and basic training usually take just one day.

There may be an additional kit fee depending upon which quilting machine you own. This price covers installation, training and support. It does not include our travel expense - that will vary according to how far we have to travel.

For a Virtual Demo of the IQ, please call or email and we can set up an online meeting
