  1. Yes, I did. I've not been able to sell my new Amara yet, so I can't buy a Millie until I do. Hopefully it will sell very soon. It's a new machine and lots of attachments that someone would pay over $18,000 for if they bought it from a dealer and I'm only asking $13,500.
  2. I've always wanted an APQS Millie, I love the idea of having a bigger throat space. My Amara hasn't been registered yet and therefore whoever buys it will get to register it in their name and have a full warranty. I was selling this new in box, but I had to set it up because I had to get a couple of quilts done. The Amara runs perfectly, no issues whatsoever. I just wish I hadn't been talked into buying it, when what I really wanted and still want is a Millie.
  3. Those sound like some great improvements. You are all making this an easier choice for me. I just checked out the link, Thank you!!! Now I'm excited!
  4. Honestly I'm not sure, it's a demo, I was told it was a 2020. What are the differences? Better differences I hope.
  5. I'm very familiar with APQS' reputation as I used to own an Ult. ll, it was around 20 years old when I sold it and it's still running, but it didn't have a stitch regulator and I wanted the ability to step up my quilting and couldn't do it without one. My dream machine was a Millie, but I let a local quilt shop talk me into an HQ Amara, which I had nothing but problems with and the dealer up and closed shop. HQ has been outstanding in dealing with the issue and that is why I have a brand new machine sitting in my quilting room and I'm selling it so that the new owner can have the full warranty
  6. Not really. I've been working with Angela Huffman in Ky. however I live in Ohio and it's about a 5 hour drive each way. I went there over 3 years ago, but at the time I was comparing the machine to an ULT. ll , I'm now using an HQ Amara, which I love the bells and whistles (but they don't have a lifetime warranty, it's 10 years, but labor is only a year), My dream machine has always been a Millie, but I'm giving up a lot of bells and whistles that I love on the Amara like the side thread stand, it's really nice not to have to walk around to the back of the machine every time I want to change
  7. I used to own an APQS Ult.ll, I ended up buying an HQ Amara and decided that I would like to go back to APQS and have put money down on an APQS Millie, I was wondering if anyone could answer some questions about the Millie before I purchase it. I know there's lighting over the needle bar area, but is there lighting in the throat of the machine? Is the light dimmable or can it be shut off while using the machine? Also when adjusting the tension is it by feel only or does the machine have a digital reading so that you know exactly where your tension is set and can use those numbers for specific
  8. I have a new Handi Quilter Amara long arm with lots of extras for sale
  9. I'll check into that. I'd never heard of it before. Thank you.
  10. How does the cotton wash up? Do you lose the trapunto look? I recently did a test piece with 80/20 on the back and 100% poly on the front and washed the sample piece on a delicate cold water cycle and I lost the trapunto look.
  11. I'm allergic to wool, but I've always wanted to make a whole cloth quilt with the trapunto look on my longarm, what is a good alternative to wool?
  12. I had an Ult last and the Hartley from APQS worked perfectly
