  1. Millie delayed. Rats

    Pamela, Now that you have had you Millie for some time now, are you having fun! I have had mine 3 years and I fall Deeper in Love every day. Except the cleaning part - but it must be done to keep her singing and not grawling
  2. Batting Question - Warm and Natural

    Cagney, Thank You for bringing the below statement from my website to my attention. I will review the website and make revisions as nescessary. Also, thank you for all the research you posted, it is great information. Now back to the real question. How can batting damage our machines? I am reluctant to mention the actual blog post, but I think it is fair a Bliss Quilter is regular poster here, and more importantly a APQS dealer. As a dealer, I believe one's statements carry a little more weight, and may be construed as fact verses personal opinion. Bliss Quilter will only accept Hobbs Heirloom, Quilters Dream (blends, cotton or wool), Warm & White (not Warm & Natural). Bliss Quilter offers these batting at reasonable prices (see Quilt Pricing page). Battings not accepted – Mountain Mist, Fairfield or Bamboo; Warm and Natural (No Exceptions) These battings result in poor quilting finishes and can damage my equipment. All, The website statement above was done years before I had my APQS machine and before I became a Dealer. However the statement "can damage my equipment" was derived from a real experience I had on another machine. I stitched on a seed while quilting with W&N and the needle deflected scratching the needle plate, bobbin assembly and shuttle and broke the needle in the down position. I was very fortunate that the timing was not affected. Therefore, I choose not to accept or use Warm and Natural batting. As Linda Rech stated W&N is much cleaner now. I would assume that with less debre in the batting one would not have the same experience I had. I just choose not to use or accept W&N. I do accept Warm and White and all others mentioned above. I appreciate the outcome of the quilting. To maintain the best workmanship of the machine, do the recommended regular maintenance found in the manual. This includes ALL machines, not just APQS. I hope this post clears up of any misconceptions about W&N batting. If anyone has any comments, please contact me directly.

  8. Bobbin pile up

    What type and wt. of Thread are you using in bobbin and top? What batting is being used? I have this most with Warm and White when I use 2 different colors and wts of thread. Can you send pictures of how the top is threaded thought all the loops. I had that happen and it was the way the thread was looped through the loops for the brand of thread I was using. What is the bobbin size L or M?

  12. Bobbin pile up

    Are you free handing or is this with a computer? Either way, slow down. If the machine is moving too fast at these points, the change in movement maybe Changing the tensions.
  13. For Charity Quilters

    Just think how much your quilt will comfort both parents and child, especially if the the child is terminal and after she goes to heaven. Don't stop listening to your heart and continue to do the beautiful work for others. And while you do it as I do, say speacial prayers/intentions for the receipiant. You have inspired me to do more longarm details on the charity quilts I do. Thank you for sharing and Many Blessings.
  14. Email Angie@apqs at APQS. They have been in Shows hot and heavy here. Angie helped me retime my machine via FaceTime. I suggest taking pictures of your threading at each path and send them to Angie@APQS.com. It could be a simple missed thread. Check that it is under the hook after the tension disc. Attached is picture of what I was speaking of. Try to loosen top tension then blowing out with canned arir then retighned. Then floss the thread into the tensions. Hope this helps.
