  1. I have an ULT11, sometimes my thread would leave the thread I got some fishing rod guides (the circle things that you thread the fish line through on the rod) and glued them in several places on my machine to help keep the thread in proper line. I no longer have my thread jump out of the guides. Another thought.. check your needle shaft...if there is any play in the shaft then it needs to be replaced. Also, what Jim said...make sure your timing isn't off on your machine.

    No, this is machine quilted. Perhaps longarm digital computer stitched
  3. CathyP I have an ULT11 with stitch regulator that was put on after market by IntelliStitch. However, I don't think they offer this option anymore unless you purchase their IQ computer system.
  4. I believe this machine has been taken.
  5. Joyce, how does a person contact you? email? phone?
  6. What would you sell just the machine for?

    I'm not seeing the table with this machine. Are you not including the table?

    Ultimate 2

    I have an ULT2 how you load is the backing goes on the back bar,(closest to the machine) then take the backing to the front under the top bar to the very front bar and attach it there. Make sure your backing is wrong side up. Lay your batting on top of the backing. Baste a straight line at the top of the batting securing it to the backing and giving you a line to butt up the quilt top to. Take your quilt top, right side up, and attach it to the front top bar. Roll the quilt top until the other end of the quilt top is where you can use the basted line on your batting/backing as a guide to pin your quilt top edge to. Then baste the quilt top edge down. You now have your backing, batting and top on your frame and ready for quilting. Hope this helps
  9. I, personally, don’t quilt over appliqué. This means that there is some starts and stops to deal with. If you are wanting to use your quilt path, then you might want to choose a more open design that wouldn’t distract from the appliqué
  10. When I had sent in my 'special' quilts for custom work, I was always asked what my budget was. Then they would work accordingly. If my budget was too low then, they would tell me that this quilt needs a $600 or $900 custom job and that would let me know what I was looking at for cost. So, ask them what they are thinking they want to pay for custom on this quilt. Their expectations could be quite low dollar wise and that will open the conversation up for you to let them know that this quilt is going to be in the ..... range for light custom or this .... range for heavy custom
  11. What a beautiful quilt! Love

    Trimming Question

    I always ask if they want it trimmed... some want it trimmed flush with the edge, others an inch away and others don't want it trimmed. Usually I know who wants what and those that want it trimmed are very thankful because they can get right to the binding without trimming first and many do not have a large area to trim. It is a perk I offer.
