  5. A recent finish for my great niece's 10th birthday. I've had the fabric for quite a few years thinking it would make a pretty girls quilt and when my niece asked me to make her a quilt I knew what I wanted to use. The pattern is called Zinnia Garden from American Patchwork & Quilting 2017 calendar. My niece loved it and apparently her bedroom is being painted to go with it! Cathy APQS Freedom w/Intelliquilter
  6. From a 12 foot table. Essentially like new. Still wrapped from the move. White color. This came with an essentially unused Millie. I cannot use it because of the location of my machine. A great buy if you need better lighting! Located in Waco, Tx (home of Fixer Upper:) Central Texas. The screws were lost in the move, but available at Lowes or Home Depot - (2)5/16" and ( 5)1/2". Retails for $795.
  7. I'm currently working on a quilt made with batiks and am having an issue with the needle not penetrating the fabric when performing the first securing stitch. The area I'm having issues with is usually a corner and I realize that batiks are denser than most cottons but it almost sounds like the motor is struggling to drive the needle down. I've also had issues with the needle up/down where I press the button and the motor sounds like it's moving the needle up and down but it doesn't. I have to turn the machine off and back on again for it to work. This usually happens after I've had the problem with the first securing stitch but not every time. I searched this forum and found the videos on adjusting the needle up/down on the back of the machine but wanted to ask here first if that is what the issue might be. I'm not having any issues once the machine starts sewing or when securing away from a seam...though the needle does hesitate sometimes. I'm using a 100/16 3.5 needle and 50wt Glide thread. I've thought about switching to a thinner needle but my stitches look fine as is. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Cathy 2015 Freedom w/Intelliquilter

  10. Hello friends, long time no see. Hope you are all well and stitching happily along. I have a problem in that the velcro on my break keeps coming off. I attach it again, clean all the clue from the roller, but to no avail. I had the same problem with my previous frame. I know i am not unique to this and wonder what others have done to solve this problem. I am actually thinking of glueing the velcro right to the roller....when i can find some that width. Thanks and happy Saturday.

  12. My first long arm is in route and I'm trying to arrange my sewing space. How much room do I need to have in terms of clearance on the sides of a 12 ft. table? I have plenty of depth and I've got the 12 ft in length but it'll put it awfully close to the guest bed that we very much need . . . .
  13. I am searching for a 2008 or newer Freedom or Millennium. If you are getting ready to sell yours or know of someone who would like to sell theirs please contact me. I would like either a 12' or 14' table. My email address is and my phone number is 209-295-5670. Thanks! PamAnn
  14. Help! I'm getting ready to finalize my order today, and someone put the bug in my ear that I should consider the Millenium with V and H channel locks, as opposed to the Freedom (which I was planning on ordering), which has only the horizontal channel locks. Can I please get some input? opinions? advice? Is it worth the extra $600? HELP!!
