  1. I recently upgraded to a Freddie and found the same issues. It drove me nuts when changing threads frequently on a particular quilt. I finally turned mine off. I found that unless you are using the same thread throughout your quilt, it really doesn't help me when I'm constantly changing bobbin for a different color. I don't know if this is your issue. But I felt compelled to write. I hope your issue has resolved.
  2. After having recently purchased a Freddie. I too, now have Quilt Glide and absolutely love it. I adore doing micro quilting and working between designs, this feature is a blessing!!!
  3. Am back to quilting full time!  Had to take off a number of years to be back out working in the retail world.  I am so happy to be back.  In the last six months, upgraded from my APQS Liberty to and APQS Freddie.  Oh I am even more in love!!!!  So grateful.

  4. Thanks Trinity! This is really quite exciting. There really are other possibilities with your product. Imagination is the key as they say.......... Thanks so much. I will check out the pics you posted and keep following. :-)
  5. Thanks Oma. I had not read that thread. I am excited. I didn't realize Trinity's idea was so new. I've often wished I could change my handles around on the back of my machine to make the angle easier for me to quilt but alas, that is not possible. Trinity wrote me on FB and said she has shipped several units out and awaits feedback. I think if one does enough pantographs, it certainly could warrant the purchase....time will tell. You wrote you just got one? How exciting!! Please let us know how the set up went and what you think. My timing may not have been so bad after all! :-) thanks so much.
  6. I've recently come across a product called 'Precise' pantograph system. It looks great. Trinity of 2sistersquilting states it fits with all APQS machines. Frankly, it's an idea I imagine many of us have thought of in some form or other when doing pantographs. I find the angle at which our machines are in the back, to work; just kills my neck and back. I would have loved something like this to come out years ago but from APQS!! :-) I'm curious if anyone else has one? What are your thoughts? It's pricey of course, like most of our toys/tools. They have a page on Facebook a well. I look forward to hearing your thoughts. BTW, I have an APQS Liberty for the past 9 years. thanks folks. I always appreciate the input from everyone here. The forum is such a terrific resource!!
  7. Super information. I've never tried Essence but I'll look into it. Thank you for your input!! :-)
  8. I've read a great deal about using monofilament for echoing applique. Is there ever a reason when you would use it on a wall hanging vs thread? It seems like that is 'frowned upon'. I've only used it once for a quilt. It worked great but I am considering using it for my freehand on a wall hanging. There is some applique on it and I thought I would use the mono throughout.
  9. I currently own a Liberty that is over 7 years old in perfect condition. Does APQs take trade ins for higher model, i.e. Freedom or Millenium? Does APQS for any deals in that regard?
  10. hook assembly question
