Stitch Harmony Stitch Regulation


Enjoy free-motion quilting at a comfortable pace with the Stitch Harmony Stitch Regulation. Built into the Regent’s table insert, the automated regulator helps you achieve evenly spaced, consistent stitches every time. This easy-to-use stitch regulation is helpful for quilters of all skill levels.

Smooth, Adjustable Table


The Regent comes with its own quilting table with Stitch Harmony Stitch Regulation built right in. Optical sensors detect the movement of the fabric across the table surface. Set your preferred height to ensure a comfortable quilting position.

Long lasting, high-intensity LED lights illuminate your needle area and workspace so you can see every detail on your quilt.
