    Ultimate 2

    If you look at my Sept. 29, 2014 post titled "Ult 2 Table Modifications" and look at the photo of my horizontal channel lock, you can see one of my white Edgerider wheels. That will show you what they look like. Jim

    Ultimate 2

    The stock wheels are a narrow, dark brown/grey/black fiber wheel with a groove that rides on the table track. The Edgeriders are a wider (about 3/4") white polymer wheel. Jim

    The only reason I didn't think it would work is because it says this on their webpage " We no longer offer IntelliStitch as an after-market upgrade." I can call them and find out though. How would I find out what kinds of wheels are stock or if they are aftermarket? I was looking through the manual (the one I asked them to email me, not the original one) and it showed a different carriage than the one in the pictures. Thank you!
  6. Leah: Give APQS's factory a call. I'm sure someone there can tell you what you need to do. Jim

    Actually I think you can get an Intellistitch regulator fitted to your machine. My understanding is that Nolting will do the installation, but I think you have to send the machine to them for the up grade. Call their factory and ask. I have an Ult 2 that I had up graded to Intellistitch, and I love it. I had my installation done by Helen B. back in 2011 when she was still doing it. The first thing I'd do is replace the stock wheels (if it still has them) with some after market ones. I have Edgeriders on mine. I don't think Kasa Engineering is still making a set specifically for the Ult 2 anymore, but a set made for a Gammill Classic will work with the simple replacement of some of the bolts supplied in the Gammill kit. As far as needles go, Gros Beckert MR SAN 11 are the proper ones. Good luck, enjoy your "new" machine. Jim

    Ultimate 2

    I tried searching, but most of the posts I got were posts that were for sale. I just got an Ultimate 2 (II). I asked in a long arm group on facebook and they told me to come here! I am so excited to use this machine!! I haven't finished getting it set up yet. (I just got it Saturday). I have used long arms before, (a gammill & an HQ avanté) renting the time at a quilt shop. But I decided when I was able to afford a long arm, I would be getting an APQS, (I really want a millenium) But this is going to be somewhere to start! I was wondering if anyone knows of a stitch regulator I can add to it now? I know intellistitch doesn't do them anymore. Any other suggestions/tips for me? (I know I need to get some sewing machine oil, I think figured out needles, (I found some on amazon). But I cannot think of anything else!)

  14. I have a 2018 Millie. I can’t get the horizontal channel lock to engage. The vertical lock works fine. The lights on the front panel come on when I press to engage the channel lock but no locking takes place. What do I need to do? Leah Davis

    Quilting Shed Inspiration

    What a wonderful space! I love it and congratulations on your Idaho move. Idaho is a wonderful state; Lord willing; I would like to retire there!
  16. Last week
  17. Is this machine still for sale? I am very interested
  18. I have a circle lord setup for use on the front of the quilting machine for sale....numerous pattern boards are included along with front stylus.. I seem to do more FM and ruler work...
  19. Have you seen the APQS timing video? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xWeqiuvwk5E&t=2293s Nigel
  20. I am moving into a smaller home and will not have room for my long-arm and so, sadly, I have to sell it. It is a 2013 APQS Millie with 12' Bliss quilting system with quilt glide, and power fabric advance. Standard features include stitch regulator, automatic needle positioner, thread cutter, single stitch button, laser light, turbo bobbin winder, black light, horizontal/vertical lock. This machine has been lightly used, well-loved and cared for. I will include any accessories I have purchased to include quite a lot of prewound bobbins, replacement needles, etc. In addition, I have 13 different CIrcle Lord giant template sets that I would prefer to include with the machine rather than selling separately and shipping to buyers. The stylus is mounted to the Millie and would be included. I have the following design boards: Birdy Baptist Fan Cosmos Honeycomb Jester Meander Ribbles Ribblets Rosebud Square Dance Swirls Trillium Zig-Zag I have kept the paperwork and original box and packing for the Millie so she can be packed and moved safely. I am asking $16,500.00 OBO for everything including all the design boards. The boards retail for over $4,000. Located in Boise, Idaho. I will be moving in probably early March and so will leave it completely assembled for as long as I can in the hopes that the machine can be demonstrated and buyer can be present for disassembly. I can send more photos via e-mail upon request.
  21. I was able to remove the needle, but now I think I have a timing problem. When taking the needle down using the flywheel and going a full cycle there is a place it comes down on part of the hook assembly. Wish I could view a video of the full cycle with the needle and hook assembly. Thank you for your feedback.
  22. Is it better to use an embroidery machine for applications, or can you use a singer quantum stylist 9960?

    Glide thread

    I’ve always had to back the tension off for Glide. Try one of these things at a time until you have success. First check the pigtail guides for grooves. For the three hole guide above the tension thread under the first hole and down the third hole, next I would back off the top tension one of two turns until the thread stops breaking then adjust the bobbin tension to balance. Also slowing down a little may help. That is what has worked for me in the past. Nigel
  24. I have glide thread in my needle and bobbin The tension looks good but the top thread keeps breaking. I'm wondering what needle size is best with glide

    I have cleaned, changed needle, rethread with a different thread, changed the bobbin. The stitches are much better, but I still am getting some bird nests on the back occasionally. We have been without internet for a until late yesterday so I haven't had a chance to watch the video. That I plan to do this weekend. I appreciate your help. Thanks! Cindy

    Lost my mojo

    Pamela, I too have this. I am cleaning my head out under the oil wicks and found lots of oil and black residue that might have gotten on mine or customer quilts (lucky it did not). This is productive time to inventory or work on embroidery, piecing, cutting with AccuQuilt out new projects. I joined a Quilt Along at the beginning of the year on Facebook under the AccuQuilt Facebook group that I am a member of, and we are on our second block this week. So it would be fun, and you need a qube, any size, and the angles companion to the qube, and the corners companion qubes. I am happily cutting and piecing these. It's normal to relax a bit now and then, and it keeps it fresh for you. I know, because when I moved there was a time of not really using it much. Each year, I often get so busy with my own Christmas quilts and clients that I feel like it's a burden to start another on the machine. So I take a week or more off. Usually from Dec. 10 - Jan. 6. This year's no different. Call me if you want to talk. You are my dearest friend, and I am always available.
