Whether you buy your own or use one of ours, the ABM Innova longarm is a lightweight-but-extremely-sturdy industrial workhorse.
The Innova longarm quilter comes in three sizes (18, 22 and 26 inches), with dozens of optional accessories and upgrades.
ABM International has been manufacturing and providing support for industrial quilting machines for more than 75 years.
In 2007, ABM began manufacturing the Innova line of longarms in its factory near Houston, Texas.
