  1. Cynthia, I just spoke with Barbara, the owner, and she loves using cotton thread. She says she's had no problems with it. She uses it both in the bobbin and top.
  2. It has an L bobbin and I do believe the owner has used King Tut cotton thread. I will verify this and how it responded and get back to you.
  3. I am advertising this machine for a friend and quilt customer. The machine has been used very little. GEORGE HAS TO GO George is lonely and feeling left out. My 2012 APQS sit down quilting machine is looking for someone who can give him more time than I’m physically able to right now. He’s a fine guy who has recently been reinvigorated by machine specialist Al Hunt. But now George needs someone to take him for a ride more often than I’ve been able to do. He’s been used very little, but not neglected as far as care. APQS lists his retail value (including a folding, adjustable table) at $3825. (Price if purchased new would be $6,900.) Below is an actual picture of my George. In order for him to find a great home, I’m willing to rehome him for $2,500 and pay half the shipping costs within the Continental U.S. Also included: Deluxe Sidewinder Bobbin Winder, metal bobbins, needles, several large cones of Superior Thread. Call Barbara at 757-218-8766 or email bacosten@gmail.com To learn more about his features, visit https://www.apqs.com/machines/george/
  4. Helping a friend. A friend is downsizing and thinking to sell her APQS quilting machine. She asked for my help in getting the word out. It’s a great buy on a machine that has been used very little. She does not use it for business, mostly for her personal quilts. If you know of anyone who might be interested, they can email me, respond to this ad, or send a personal message to me.

  5. there is a document at this link that may help.
  6. I think,it would be most helpful,to see a picture of the design on your screen
  7. Did you Optimize and CHECK FOR BREAKS?
  8. Whatever I set my stitch length to be on my Millie, is what I get with QP.
  9. Marie, who did you purchase your QP from, they should be able to invite you to the FB forum. They will need your email address and/or your name on Facebook.
  10. The backing roller. If you have a Freddie, you likely have a deluxe table, therefore you would use the 3" diameter.
  11. My understanding is that the newer version is in the testing stage. But your version is the latest that has been released.
  12. If this is just one pattern and not a row of patterns, you could use the 4 point placement.
