  1. I have an opportunity to purchase a My QuiltBug, EQ 20 Longarm quilting machine and frame at a good price. I have been piecing for some years and recently started watching for a good buy on a quilting machine because I would really like to quilt my own pieced quilts. Unfortunately, I have been studying about other machine manufacturers and therefore know very little about My QuiltBug machines or the Eclipse company. Anyone have any information, I would be very appreciative.

  4. Has this happened to anyone. I turned off Lucey. 10 minutes later went back to take out the bobbin and oil her. The needle wont lift. It wont move at all. I got the needle out and the bobbin and still nothing. I checked to see if anything got unplugged. Dont know what else to check, Ill call in the am, but thought someone here might know what to do. Just took off a customer quilt, loaded another, then took it off and thats when it happened. This is such an awesome machine. I have been quilting the last 3 or 4 quilts without the stitch regulator. Really distraught about this, but I hope its a simple solution to the problem. Need to load another quilt. Thanks to anyone that can help.

  9. Baby Lock Tiara 16" midarm quilting machine $3,000 in great condition! This is the same free motion quilting machine as a sit-down Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen, with a different label. The Baby Lock Tiara is one of those compact free motion home quilting machines that has a footprint just a little bigger than a large sewing and embroidery machine. Unlike the large 10ft stand-up quilting machines which require a separate room or garage, the Tiara easily sits against one wall. This machine is also much easier to learn and use than a stand-up longarm machine. On the Tiara, you are sitting down and moving the quilt sandwich, rather than the machine, to quilt. You are familiar with those movements, but now you will have a large surface to spread your heaviest quilts, and a large arm space to give you options for stitch in the ditch, free motion all- over designs or intricate patterns, if that’s what you want! This table and machine are perfect for a quilter who wants to expand their home quilting capabilities. And, no need to take your beautiful quilt tops to someone else, and paying, and waiting hopefully, that the quilting will be what you wanted! Model BLTR16, which has large 8.25” x 16” throat space. Vertical spool pin ¼” Hopping foot Customizable speed control Large, adjustable color LCD touch screen shows: Programmable Needle Positioning: Needle Up/Down Uses large capacity Type M bobbins Accommodates needle sizes 12/80 – 20/125. Table size is 36”long x 30” deep PLUS table extension, which adds another 18” to length of table, but can be dropped when not being used. Lots of accessories - separate bobbin winder, free motion quilting gloves, horizontal spool pin for specialty threads, bobbins, needles, oil, overlay for table, and 2 special gripping hoops. I have the original boxes for transporting the machine.

  13. Babylock Jewel Longarm (BLJ18) with Grace Pinnacle 10 foot frame For sale – Babylock Jewel 18” Longarm quilter with a 10 foot Grace Pinnacle frame – the frame can be assembled in either a 10 foot or 5 foot length. Stitching can be used either manual or regulated. For all information on the factory setup, please view the Babylock site at: Accessories included with the machine include: Ruler base Micro Handles Sure Foot (taller profile foot for use with rulers) Full cluster lights Cloth leaders Various bobbins and needles Bobbin winder Also included are the original manuals for the Longarm and for the frame. There are step by step setup instructions for both on the included CD’s. The frame is currently disassembled, and the machine is boxed in its original packing box. Therefore the one photo of the machine on the frame is a stock photo from Babylock. It was in great working condition before disassembly. Asking $3,000 if picked up locally in the Las Vegas area. Shipping would be extra - I'm not sure how much it would cost to ship - I have the original box and packing for the longarm but the accessories and frame would have to boxed.

  19. 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 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.
