  1. I wish APQS would create a base like the Ruler Mate, since Donita isn't consistent with customer service. I think they still sell the Hartley Base, but it just doesn't fit as well. I have a Ruler Mate on both of my Millenniums and they are never removed.
  2. Thanks Zeke. I use 5.57 myself. Bonnie was using 5.07. Is the hot key issue the only difference? Sorry, but I don't know how to use the messenger. I'll send you an email instead.
  3. My sister upgraded to CompuQuilter many years ago and I thought she'd sold all her paper patterns. When cleaning out her condo this week I came across a large bag of patterns! (Among many other things.) 28 patterns, all very good designs. $195 for all 28 includes free Priority Mail shipping. That's $7 each and free shipping.

  5. I need the CompuQuilter Manual V5.57. It's on one of my CQ computers, but refuses to transfer to a USB stick or a CD disc! Any chance you have it and can put it in a zip file for me? I've sold my sister's 2004 machine and she was still running the original software. I'm in the process of upgrading CQ to the belt drive and really need that manual. MUCH APPRECIATED if you have it! eppd at telus dot net

  7. Last I heard, APQS still had some parts in stock. I won't give mine up either.
  8. I'm a die hard CompuQuilter fan too! So sad to see the owners and company gone. I still think it's the most user friendly computerized system on the market! I have CQs on 2 Millenniums; a 2006 and a 2008. They're still working hard to turn out beautiful quilting. They just make it LOOK easy!
  9. The time has come. My website will be shut down the end of August. All Digitized Patterns are on SALE at 50% off!

The Pocket Guides to Freehanding have been going strong for 16 years now and I'm so grateful for the response these little books have had over the years.
  10. Hi Kristi, This machine is huge, and was made specifically for the drapery and bedspread business. I wouldn't attempt anything but the most simple quilting on it. No matter how little it costs, if you can't use it the way you want to, it's not a good deal. I've been an APQS Dealer in BC since 1997, and I believe this machine was only available for a year or so after that. Longarm machines have come a long way since the Ultimate XX. This is a bare bones machine. After using a Millennium for 5 years, I think you'd be more than a little disappointed with the XX. JMHO!
  11. Yes. I had a call from Donita just last week. She is now located in Bozeman, Montana.
  12. Very good advice Sue. But if you DO decide to venture into digitizing your own designs, you absolutely can't go wrong with Art and Stitch. The training and support are second to none! Check out the training videos on the website. That will give you a glimpse into what the software can do. There is also a very comprehensive manual which takes you step by step through all the functions, and as other quilters discover new ways to use the software, addendums are added to the manual. Also, webinars which you can attend online.
  13. Thanks for the info Barb. No, it can't go diagonally. Jim, the table is the old style with the adjustable frame and square legs. It has the 4 rollers and auto fabric advance, so no need to keep the feed dogs on the ends for ratcheting the tension. A new table would put the price of the machine out of reason.
  14. Has anyone done this? And if so, how did you go about it? I have a 2003 Millie that I may have to cut the table down from 14' to 12' for a potential buyer.
  15. Yes, it's that simple Barb. Absolutely no problem when taking to the US because it's made in the USA.
  16. Will include help with set up if sold in Lower Mainland, and 2 days training in my studio in Chilliwack. ($400 value). Training will include "Perfecting the Pantograph" and Fun with Freehand". Open to offers up to $9500.
