The Pro Difference

Pinnacle Of Free Motion

The Q'nique 21 Pro glides effortlessly over fabric, like drawing with a pencil on paper. You'll enjoy free motion quilting with more speed, quality, and precision than ever before.


Expansive Throat Length

A wide 21-inch work area gives you the freedom to quilt larger, more intricate patterns and blocks. You'll be able to free-motion quilt in a much larger area than with midarms or smaller domestic machines.



The handles are the number one way you interact with your sewing machine, so we designed the handles on the Q'nique 21 Pro to give you the best quilting experience possible. All major functions and settings can be controlled right from the handles and easily navigated using the full-color display.



The handles of Q'nique 21 Pro adjust to the most comfortable position, so you can quilt in the way that feels most natural. The handles can also be rotated down to a "micro–handle" position for precise control over fine stitching and stippling.



The handles have been designed with a comfort grip, following the contours and curves of your hand. The soft ergonomic handles relieve stress on the hands, letting you quilt for an extended period of time.



All the quilting functions of the machine can be controlled easily right from the handles with the push of a button.




The patented hopping foot of the Q'nique 21 Pro can be positioned for optimum visibility of the needle. Easily switch the hopping foot to either the side or the back of the needle according to your preference.

Bobbin Estimator

With our new bobbin estimator, you can keep track of bobbin-life is, and control at what point you want to replace it before it runs out.


Integrated LED Work Lights

You’ll love being able to clearly see each stitch defined with color-accurate, daylight-balanced lighting.

Automatic Bobbin Winder

A high–speed automatic bobbin winder is built right into the machine. This makes refilling the bobbin a breeze! Just use the thread from one of the thread towers. The bobbin winder even shuts off automatically when the bobbin is full!
