  5. Hi Cagey, Your assumption is right--barring a catastrophe with the machine, machines used only casually may not need any "wear and tear" maintenance for two decades or more (if ever). The machines we are seeing back at the factory now for the "spa treatment" are in the 2006-2008 model year, and most have been used in business settings. The most common "wear" items that eventually need replacement with extensive use are: hook assembly thread guides needle bar bushings motor brushes wheels canvases All of the items listed above can also be replaced
  6. As Customer Service Director, I appreciate your candid feedback! If you have not received the kind of service you expect, please let me know so that we can remedy the situation as quickly as possible. We do take pride in our customer service, and if we have fallen down on the job we want to make it right. Unfortunately, if we aren't alerted to a problem, then we can't fix it. If you have not had an issue resolved to your satisfaction, please let me know. I understand the desire to have more customer service technicians around the world to help customers who are not willing or able to do t
  7. CBW, The stitch regulator on our new machines beeps once every 8 seconds or so. We have our customers' safety in mind by having that audible warning tone--when the sewing motor is engaged and the regulator is on, the machine will sew when you move the machine. However, we don't want you to get distracted (maybe a phone call or knock on the door) and just walk away from the machine without turning off the sewing motor. When you return to the machine, if you decide to "check the bobbin" before you resume quilting, but you haven't shut off the motor, we don't want you to mangle your fingers
  8. Hi Everyone, Gotta "love" technology! It's been a relatively quiet couple of weeks for our service and support teams, and we've been thinking that everyone must be on spring break since we haven't received many emails. Well....the IT department upgraded the email server a couple of weeks ago, which resulted in changes to the spam filters for our incoming emails. Unbeknownst to us, that new filter did not allow anything through from the "Contact Us" links on the website and forum. When we realized how few emails had been coming through, we let our IT team know today and they discovere
  9. Hello Everyone, As you may have noticed we've been having more issues with the current Forum's features working properly, as well as spammers infiltrating the system. The current Forum software version is outdated and an upgrade is required, but we have been holding off its implementation as long as possible to prevent disruption to the site during everyone's busy quilting time before the holidays. However, we are to the point where we can no longer postpone the upgrade without risking the security of the site. We must implement the upgrade as soon as possible. The new Forum softwa
  10. Hello Everyone, We're sorry that the Forum software has been causing issues with photo uploads. The issue was related to a security problem and has been resolved. Because of ongoing issues with the current Forum software, we must perform a software upgrade very soon. This could result in some changes to the way the Forum appears and functions but we will do everything we can to keep all the features that are important to our users. The new Forum software is being user-tested right now. We anticipate making the change-over fairly quickly once testing is complete. However, the change
  11. Hello everyone! By now you may have heard the exciting news that a major upgrade of Quilt Path is fast approaching! We’re in the final stages of testing and writing documentation so that we can get the new features to you soon. These include fast and simple border and corner placement, placing blocks using real size measurements, additional design templates, more free designs, design skew and more! You have also probably heard about Windows 10 and have been wondering if you should upgrade your Quilt Path tablet to this new operating system. After much research and consideration about
  12. Hi Barb, Yes, this machine is sold. We don't know the final selling price as we only assisted in connecting the buyer and seller together.
  13. I have deleted the spammer's posts and blocked further access to the Forum. Sorry for the inconvenience!
  14. Good Morning friends, So sorry about the recent spam outbreak on the forum this weekend. I have not been on the computer all weekend as I'm dealing with one of those lovely "homeowner moments". Our refrigerator ice maker line decided to spring a leak in our basement. I have removed all the spam posts I could find, and have banned the perpetrators. If you find any additional posts that I missed, please let me know. Have a great Sunday!
  15. Betty, We do have Quilt Path classes coming up August 24 and 25 in Des Moines. The introductory class covers all the basics of Quilt Path, including pantographs, block placement, designing simple patterns, recording, and designing quilts. Consider it an overview of the software so that you can learn all of the capabilities of it. The Quilt Path Potpourri course is a little bit of everything--and the topics are based on the needs and questions of the students attending. It gets more in depth into designing your own patterns, learning how to do more specialized tasks like sashes on point
