  1. I have been interested in all the comments. Just to update since I wrote the first question. I did decide to go with the Millie with Quilt Path. I am really enjoying the machine and learning a lot as I go. I have had a few minor issues, some user error and some routine maintenance (a screw jostling loose and needing tightning) but the customer service has been outstanding and the machine is easy to maintain and "repair." What I wish I had known more about during the decision making process: I wasn't aware that the APQS could be outfitted with other robotic systems. If I had realized th
  2. I’m interested in purchasing bar magnets for my APQS Millie. I read on one blog that care should be taken with any electronics. I definitely do not want to create any problems with my Quilt Path. What do fellow members know about this.
  3. This looks interesting to me, also. Are you willing to share information about how it was made?
  4. I read a suggestion about using track lighting above a long arm. Has any one tried this? My room is 14x10 with standard 8 foot ceiling. I have a fairly large window on the west wall, which on a sunny day, gives me nice overall lighting. But on cloudy days and at nigh additional light would be needed. The current set up is a ceiling light/fan in the center of the ceiling. Longarm is not yet set up so I don't have actual experience with what lighting is actually needed and will wait for final decision until that happens. I didn't purchase $800 option lighting because it seems awfully exp
  5. Thank you for the replies. I wish I could click and reply to each comment under your comment but I cannot see an option to do that. So... MaryQuiltsTx the largest quilt I have made to date is 88x98 with a prepared backing of 98x114. Mostly, it seems like I make twin-large twin. But there is always the possibility that a friend might want me to try a larger quilt. PlumPurple and others--what would be the size quilt you can actually quilt on either a 10 ft or 12 ft table? The general concensus from you and others is to go with the larger table. According to Kevin at APQS and
  6. I am planning on ordering a Millie and putting it in my guest bedroom which is 14'x10'. I need to know what would be the "best" sized table. I sew in another room so I would have the long arm and small cabinetry or closet for supplies, thread, etc. I plan to get the Quilt Path so don't know how much I would use back side for pantographs. I have never done them and all of this is pretty new to me. The suggestion was to go with the 12' table ("Get the longest one that you can fit in the space" seems to be the universal answer) and use the 2 extra feet to be able to move from fron
  7. I am seriously considering purchase of long arm, mostly for personal use. I am looking at ones with computerized systems and have come down to Innova 26" vs Millie. I like a lot of the characteristics of the Millie and have worked a few hours on the Innova after a dealership class and renting. I have not used either Quilt Path or the Innova computer options (or any others) and know nothing about either. The big advantage of an Innova purchase is that the dealer and very experienced tech has his store a mile away. It looks like the machines are fairly similar. Innova dealer says
