  1. I was doing ALOT per month (both overall and custom) for many years until cancer entered my life. I spent most of 2016 not working (yes I pretty much depleted my business account) Now I'm back to quilting but nowhere what I did before. First of all I don't have the stamina because of Tamoxifen and cumulative effects even a year out and second sometimes I just don't want to. It's hard now as we will have 2 in college for almost the next 10 years, but at least I'm here for my family. Just think of what your priorities are at the present time and adjust them accordingly because life can change in an instant.
  2. I'm just bumping this to the top of the thread. It's still available and a waste to sit and not be used!
  3. My machine is still available! I've had people ask about it, but it's for pickup only. I'm in central PA about 80 miles north of the capital of Harrisburg.

  5. Hi all, Here is the information on my machine that I'm selling. It is a 2010 Lenni on a 10' frame ( large enough to do up to queen). I'm the 3rd owner for this machine. I bought it near the end of 2010 from a lady in Boyertown, PA. She bought it to use it for personal use off a lady who bought it new from APQS to start a business I believe which didn't happen. She sold it because it was too much for her and she needed the room. I know she told me she had it serviced by the PA APQS rep before selling it to me. I bought this machine as a second machine ( I have an older Milie) with the intention of starting a long arm rental business in a rented place. That never worked out in this area. I had 2 ladies take beginning lessons on the machine (where I was with them continually) but then never had anyone rent time on it. So I used it to work on quilts the few days I was at my store since I use my Millie for everything. After I closed my store in the fall of 2013, I set the machine up at home in case I got custom quilts that needed to stay on my larger frame for a time so that I could work on other quilts. I did use it a bit, but not enough to warrant keeping it (a dozen or so quilts at the most). It has always been in a place where it was heated and air conditioned. I maintained it and oiled it when used. The past year especially it has not been used as I have been dealing with breast cancer since the beginning of the year. now that I'm getting back to somewhat normal and starting to get back to work, I realized that it's better to sell this machine to someone else. It works great. The only issue that I have had is that the turn knob brakes wore out and didn't grab anymore, so I bought the new pressure fit levers that came last week. So I need to switch them out. You can look on the APQS website for the specs on the machine which is close to my machine. I know they changed the handle design. I know I have an original brochure and picture somewhere that I can take a picture of and send to you if you like. I did update the table and carriage system sometime in 2011. You'll notice that 2 pictures in my store have a white table. The current table is black with one piece rails and an IQ carriage system. I didn't want to spend $3,000 to upgrade to the Bliss table and system and this was a less expensive alternative. It runs smoother that the original table and I haven't had problems with it. I will also include extras: - hook on the machine for hanging scissors -base extender for doing ruler work -micro handles for detail work -horizontal spool holder (on top of the machine to use spools instead of cones) -separate bobbin winder -1 dozen bobbins of 2 different types -3 new bobbin cases - 1 10 pack of needles -zippered leaders that I bought and attached with extra sets to attach your quilts to the frame easily I'm asking $6,000 for everything - pick up only. I don't want to ship it plus it would be expensive for the buyer. Please let me know if you have any other questions or want more picture of the carriage system etc.
  6. This machine is still for sale. It works great and needs a new home!

  8. Hi all, I'm just getting feelers out there for now, but I will be selling my 2010 Lenni that was my second machine in the very near future. I'm waiting on the new braking system that I just ordered for it to come. As some of you may have remembered, I was diagnosed with breast cancer early this year and spent most of this year dealing with most of the "stuff" that comes with that. Now 2 major surgeries later, I'm finally going to force myself back to long arm quilting after Labor Day. But I have had this machine (I'm the 3rd owner) but it has only been lightly ( and I mean lightly used - maybe about 2 dozen quilts at the most). I will be putting up pictures, plus include some extras that I've added and upgraded. I would like to not ship it (I'm located in central PA, Elysburg, PA). It is a good machine and has worked very well for me. The knob brakes wore out, hence the reason I spent the money to put new ones on. For now you can email me rosenoll2008@gmail.com or message me on here ( I don't get on here much since breast cancer entered my life). Thank you all for thinking of me and praying for me over the past months. I'm trying to get back to "normal" . It's been quite a journey and eye opener.
  9. Leslie, I did send you an email (hopefully you got it). Expect 6-10 business days. Thanks!!
  10. Hi all. My online store will be shut down at the end of June 2016. I have gotten a lot of orders through here, but want to put it out one more time for anyone else. I still have lots of goodies left and all at 50% off. Please use the code EVERYTHING50 at checkout http://www.phoenixrosequilts.com. I hope the next time I post it will be stating that I'm back to business and quilting since my breast cancer diagnosis and surgery early this year. I did quilt one quilt for myself - (only took me an entire month). All good things come to those who wait. Every day is a gift - don't waste it!
  11. Sorry about that - I reset the coupon so it should work now. I had it to expire at the end of April and just didn't think to change it.
  12. Thank you to everyone for all the prayers and well wishes with my cancer diagnosis and recovery. Even though I'm not quilting yet for customers, my online store is in its last months and I have everything at 50% off. I still have lots of good things left from kits, to fabrics and threads and various notions. Please visit my website http://www.phoenixrosequilts.com and use the code EVERYTHING50 at checkout. This offer is only good while my store is still online so don't wait! Thank you! Every day is a gift - don't waste it!
  13. This is the first time I'm on here since my surgery in February. I'm doing well - not 100% but getting there. After no risk factors, I was diagnosed with invasive lobular carcinoma in early January. My oncologist told me I shouldn't have gotten cancer - but I did. My breast cancer ended up being stage 2 and was hidden in the mammogram because of dense breast tissue. Thankfully I was sent for an ultrasound at the same time, which caught it because I couldn't feel anything! Know your breast density girls and it you have heterogeneously dense or extremely dense breasts , talk to your doctor for additional screening - it could save your life! It did mine!! Thankfully no chemo is in the future for me - but 10 years on hormone therapy. I also have 1 maybe 2 more surgeries to finish the reconstruction process. I actually sat at my sewing machine last week and sewed for the first time in months. This week I'm going to load one of my quilts on my long arm frame to quilt it to see how I can handle standing and working all day. I need to get back to work for something to do and also for the income! Thanks for all the prayers ! Support cancer research - there WILL be cures in the future!
