  1. I've got directional tension issues when using my IQ pantos. It seems that it is fine when just testing in manual mode. When I start the panto, the stitching on the back of the quilt lays on top of the quilt when going the the backward direction. If I tighten the tension to alleviate this issue, the tension on the front is too tight. I've also tried a bigger needle, rotating the needle, lighter thread in the bobbin, and slowing the speed down. Nothing has helped. I've read and tried all of the suggestions posted thus far. Any help. Is it at all related to the IQ software?
  2. Just off my quilt frame this week, "Surf Song" bargello. From the book Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts by Eileen Wright. Needed a king size quilt for my bed and instead of adding borders to make a king sized "Surf Song" I kept building the bargello to the edges. I quilted it with IQ and the panto Ripples by Lorien Quilting. I will make coordinating batik pillowcases and of course still need to bind the beast!! Robin in MT

  4. SOLD! One owner 2008 Millennium on a 12 foot table. Also available is the top of the line ClassiQ purchased in 2013 $10,000 firm for IQ Email Barb at sewquiltingbarb@gmail.com for more information.
  5. One of our local quilt shop, YardWork is selling their Lenni with IQ on it. It’s a 2009 APQS Lenni, 20” throat on that machine with a 10 foot table, can go out to 108” on the shortest side of the quilt without the computer on it & appx 98” on the shortest side with the IQ on it. They've only had it about a year and have decided to go in a different direction. Before that it was my machine and not one that I used very often, so I would estimate that I put about 200 hours or less on it and the quilt shop probably hasn't put very many hours on it either, but you can ask Mary at YardWork about that. This machine has a custom lightbar on it that allows it to be placed anywhere and have good lighting, at least a $750 value. The IQ is a ClassiQ IQ which means it has all the bells and whistles. In addition to the patterns that come preloaded on it this IQ has appx $7500 worth of patterns that I designed on it. approximately 600 motif/block patterns & appx 240 pantograph (allover, edge to edge, & borders) patterns. I've attached a photo of the machine when it was in my studio. I'm just listing it to help the gals at the quilt shop out, so they should be contacted directly for more information. This is a machine that I'd actually buy back if I had room and I'm willing to answer questions on getting started with IQ for the new owner as I'm both an APQS & IQ dealer. Here's the contact information: Yard Work Quilt Shop - Mary Pomerening phone: 715-877-3885 Located in Fall Creek, WI (less than 10 miles east of Eau Claire) Email: yardworkfabrics@gmail.com
  6. I have a 2010 Millennium with a IQ that I add in 2015 for sale. It has 14 foot table with Bliss and auto advance. I have zippers attached at the moment but you can remove if you would like to use something else. I broke my shoulder 18 months ago and it has not healed to the point where I can quilt like I used to so I would like to sell it to someone who can enjoy it like I once did. I am asking $18,000 for the complete set. The machine has not been used much in the 7 years that I have had it and the IQ is the top of the line with updates available for the life of the machine. I have added a few patterns to the ones that came on the IQ when I bought it new. You would need to make arrangements to pick up the machine in Paducah, KY if you decided to purchase. Contact me at mscott2611@comcast.net with any questions Also, I forgot to put in the above post that it includes a saddle stool, drawer full of thread, fil-tec magnetic bobbins, stand alone self winding bobbin attachment, has the L size bobbin, some rulers. The machine has been well taken care of and has probably only quilted 30 quilts in the 7 years that I have had it.
  7. Just finished my 2nd custom quilt with IQ. It is Deck the Halls by Claudia's Creations. The redwork is done with the Deck the Halls machine embroidery CD, The quilting is all done by IQ. I had this posted in Computer Aided Quilting but Gator thought I should post it here too so more people would see it. I added IQ in July 2016 and am loving it so far! I learned so much on this quilt but don't get much time to quilt on my own stuff, and do mostly panto's for customers, so I hope I can retain some of what I learned by the time I get to custom quilt again! Thanks for looking! Robin in MT
  8. Just finished my 2nd custom quilt using IQ. I have had my IQ since July 2016 and have been doing panto's for the most part as that is what I do for customers. This quilt is called Deck the Halls and it is designed by Claudia's Creations. I did the redwork with Claudia's machine embroidery CD and I used my stash of Sentiments by Moda for the pieced blocks. I did all of the quilting with IQ. I learned so much that my head hurts!! and I hope I can remember it all by the time I do my next custom quilt. Thanks for looking! Robin in MT

Contact me at mscott2611@comcast.net with any questions By the way if you know someone who is in town for the APQS quilt show this week maybe you could talk them into picking it up for you or arranging shipping for you if you were interested in purchasing this machine. Also, I forgot to put in the above post that it includes a saddle stool, drawer full of thread, fil-tec magnetic bobbins, self winding bobbin stand alone, has the L size bobbin.
  10. I have recently purchased IQ and am going to self-install (hopefully) as I live in the sticks of Montana. I also recently purchased (last November) casters for my quilting frame. I'm wondering how many of you IQ owners have casters on your frames. Do they make the table too unstable? I sure do like having the ability to move my frame against the wall when not quilting and having the additional room. My dealer said it is better not to have them on but if I keep them to be sure to lock them down. What are your recommendations on this? Thanks.
  11. 2009 APQS Millennium 12’ table Long-arm with Bliss upgrade has sold. Thank you.
  12. I'm considering getting a Millie with Quilt Path, or adding IQ to my Gammill. In researching this, I read that adding IQ would make me loose 6" of quilting space. I currently have a Gammill Optimum with the 30" throat and don't like loosing any of that space. I know a Millie would have 26" of throat space to start with and am wondering if you loose more with the Quilt Path system installed? There are so many great features on the Millenium that I would love to give a try, but I don't want to go down too far on quilting space. Did Quilt Path add a "no sew" zone yet? I really would like to have that feature. I like that Quilt Path works with the APQS stitch regulator. IQ doesn't work with your machine stitch regulator. IQ looks like it is very user friendly, though. Oh, decisions, decisions..... Any info is appreciated!
  13. I am looking into purchasing a long arm.... so excited. Not sure if it will be APQS or Gammill. Love the Creative Studio software. Has anyone used IQ? and do you have 12 inch or anyone out there with the 9.7 inch version? Any regrets? Advice welcome. This is a big step for me and you are the experts. Thanks in advance

  15. Wahoo!!! It's finally here. After six interminably long weeks, my IQ finally arrived and was installed. Yipee !!! Happy Dance! Now I can play....er, I mean practice diligently.... The first quilt (a sampler of my own making) will go on the frame tonight. That way I can practice all the unique techniques that Laura Lee Fritz taught me over the weekend. She was a wealth of information. Pictures when I'm done, but that may be a while since I have out of town company coming in today and staying for two weeks. I'll see if I can sneek time in on my machine. .......tippie toe......
  16. Just ordered my IQ and it's due to be installed in about a month. Yeeeee!!!! I'm very excited about it. But I've been looking online and lots of places sell already digitized designs and I know I can trace my designs on the IQ, but I'm just wondering about some of the software available to create my own digitized designs. Does anyone have a favorite? I've seen youtube video and other posts for Art & Stitch, Pro-Q, and another one that I forgot to write down. Anything special you think I should know or consider? Is it worth the expense? Also, I've seen a couple of systems for sale as either used or 'came with my LA, but never used'. I also recall reading somewhere that if you purchase used software (even if it was never opened and installed), it won't work right because it cannot be registered to a new computer. Is that true? Any info/ advice/ opinions etc., would be tremendously helpful and much appreciated. Thanks, Lora.
  17. I am trying to learn my IQ system and it is coming along ok, but today I keep running into my leveler bar when the pattern I have selected stitches out in it's first row. Anyone had this problem and how did you solve it? Thanks so much! Carol
  18. I am so green! There I said it. That didn't hurt at all. I am so excited My Quilt Path ships today. I will be recording dozens of videos to give you a 'real time' look at the learning curve a newbie to automated quilting can expect when they take the leap into computerized quilting. My question to all you experts and even light users on the forum is this: Where do I start downloading new designs? What are some of the sites out there where I can find border/blocks/e2e designs to load into my QP when it arrives? What am I looking for in a good starter pack? What designs do you guys use the most? What designs do your clients request the most? Should I set a budget so I don't go crazy overboard with designs I may never use? Someone school me PLEAAAAASE!
