  4. The last link allows you to pick your machine, your frame, and specific model number. I have no idea of the quality of the stitch regulator. Best of luck to you.
  5. I'm using Superior MonoPloy invisible thread with a magna glide bobbin. Loose tension, and stitches look fine. 3.5 needle as recommended by Superior. No twisting on the thread path. Net on the spool. Doing custom quilt. First ruler block went fine. Set up a panto for the wide border, and I'm getting thread breakage every few inches. What else can I try? It driving me crazy since the invisible thread is so hard to see to re-thread. 2017 Millie. M bobbin

  8. This author is also popular in online stores. I am happy for real we have so developed online education now. I mean we can find so many great books, tutorials, courses, etc. on the Internet. This quarantine I faced with so many difficulties with my study, but my friend advised me this service, which helped me a lot, as I couldn't consult with my teacher enough but needed to complete the assignment fast. It made real my finance assignment to be written))

  15. You should be able to get a pretty good ides as to whether the hook needs polishing without removing it, by 1) looking carefully for scratches, and 2) running your finger over the various hook parts feeling for any damage. A couple of basic questions: Have you checked the machine timing? If it is slightly out of time, the top thread may not be being released timely, causing the thread to be overly stressed. Are you using the proper type needle? If they are the Singer type (which includes Gros-Beckert) they should be MR, SAN 11 size 3.0 to 5.0. If they are something else, the needle may be your problem. Did your manual include photos of proper timing? If so, make sure your machine is adjusted exactly as pictured. If you don't have photos, look on APQS's website for examples. BTW, I think all the Ult 2 manuals were photo copied pages held in a binder, at least that's what mine is like. The timing photos however, are actual excellent quality black and white photos. When looking at the machine timing, pay particular attention to the needle bar adjustment. I seem to remember having a similar thread issue with my machine shortly after I bought it, and it turned out to be that the needle bar was set too deep. Raising the needle bar so the needle eye position exactly matched the proper timing photo, solved the problem. Good luck. Jim
  16. Hi guys, its Karen McTavish - This is my friend Alane's longarm - which she loved very much. Everything in Alane's longarm studio will go with the machine. Threads, rulers, needles, pins....everything. The value of her machine when she purchased it was $22,750.00 in late 2017. Alane had quilted maybe 10 quilts on the longarm so it has had very little use. Unfortantely, Alane passed away from cancer and was a professional quilting designer. Alison Glass worked with Alane for several years.

    Hey Jim, Thanks for your response. Do you have to remove the hook assembly to look at it and sand? When I first turn the machine on it seems to run longer without shredding the top thread, once it starts it's like every ten to fifteen minutes. The thread came off the hook in the back and the thread broke almost immediately, I could tell the thread broke not shredded even though it took me a good twenty minutes to figure it out. I have finished two quilts on this machine. When it works it has a pretty stitch, but it's a struggle with this issue. Loretta
  18. I have a question about the Featherz template and now that CL is out of business, I can't get help from them. If you have this template and can answer a quick question, please let me know. Thanks! ~Patti
  19. It sounds like the spring tension might be the issue. You can tighten the spring tension by removing the tension assembly, loosening the set screw, rotating it against the spring, tightening up the set screw and replacing it in the machine. When you return the assembly to the machine, make sure that the spring is set at the 10:30/11:00 position when it is "resting". Good luck. Jim
  20. Loretta: Both Laura and I have Intellistitch stitch regulators on our machines, so our "unregulated" experience is in the distant past. That being said, shredded thread isn't only a problem of unregulated machines. Is there any particular quilting action where the shredding happens? If so, that might give us a clue. I personally use YLI Longarm Professional as top thread almost exclusively. The strongest longarm thread I've found. It is possible that you have a burr somewhere on your hook assembly. Examine it very carefully, and if you fine one polish it down with fine emery cloth. Good luck. Jim
  21. That sounds a lot like Intellistitch's manual with stop/start, except rather than pulsing, the Intellistitch actually stops stitching until you move it again. You can turn that Intellistich feature off and have it stitch when you stop, but why would you want to? Jim
  22. Hi there, Do you still have these. I have a 2008 Millie would it fit her? I'd love to have them. You can email me at Thank you! Natalie Myers
