  1. Machine is sold. Going to a new home in Calais Maine. So happy it's going to a good home and I didn't have to put in storage.
  2. Buyer backed out. Still for sale. New price $3,600 it is a great machine to start with. Supplies alone worth more than asking price. You could always use it for trade if you decide you want more bells and whistles.
  3. I am moving to a smaller home so I must sell my APQS Discovery Quilting machine. It is a great working, smaller longarm (same body as UII 20" throat) not a midarm. It includes machine, wood and metal table, supplies, patterns, batting, thread, and Circle Lord system with templates aND full sized queen boards. I would like $3,900 or BO for everything. I ran a Quilting business for a short time so it has all kinds of supplies to start a business or just your own quilting. There are about $2,000 in Circle Lord supplies alone. The Discovery is similar to the Lenni or Liberty by APQS but no Stitch regulator. I have done very well with out one. It easily handles different types of threads and still have beautiful stitches. It has all the other gizmos like needle up down, one stitch, laser light, and it is very light weight (37 lbs?). Being so light, it makes free motion quilting a breeze. I will provide a couple of hours in lessons for free and help set up if bought within 60 miles. I can also provide additional lessons if needed at an additional cost. I live in South Portland Maine about 45 minutes north of Portsmouth NH. It needs to be picked up. Give me an email or text me 207.766.6800 I have it listed under craigslist maine also.
  4. I have a APQS Discovery which is just like the Ultimate II with wooden table plus all the electronics but a SR. I also have all the supplies plus Circle Lord with several patterns and 2 queen size panels. I'm looking to sell for $6000. I live in South Portland Maine. I believe we are about 7 hours away. Hopefully the snow will melt soon and I can get it out of my basement. Always welcome to contact me to try. Hope your find something you like. I love this machine but I have health problems and may need to move. Pat
  5. Hi Discovery is still for sale. After reading some posts with ideas about moving machines I may be able to help with delivery in the New England area. I am selling with everything. I hate to sell quilting supplies seperate. That would bring price down but for someone just starting out it would be nice to have it all to go together. Email me or post. Lilacquilter @ yahoo. Com or pathutti@ maine.rr. com Thanks :-)
  6. Hi Lynn, Where I just listed it I would like to keep it a package. It is a great deal for someone who wants to start up a business. If it doesn't sell after a while, I may start selling the supplies separetly. I do have some very nice pantos. The circle lord patterns (I have to make a list) they will fit the bigger machines.
  7. What a cutie! She reminds me of my Schatzi. My calmest dog was a rescue. His name was Major Tibbs. We called him Major Baby because he was one. I love the natural ears. I think they are cuter that way. I wish the US was like Britain and banned docking the ears. Tails are different. I used to say they dock Schnauzer tails because they would beat themselves. They are always wagging those tails. :-)
  8. My hubby loves Dr Who and as the Doctor would say "Quilts are Cool!" Love the colors of Tom Baker's scarf in border. Ok I'm a Whovian too. Love that you made a panto yourself for it.
  9. I love puppies but hate the training. I've had a few schnauzers and love the breed (but two died of pancreatitis and I never fed them people food) My moms is 15 years old. I agree with the big dog attitude. Also if they are fighting do not let the dogs fight it out as some people say to do or someone will be going to the vets. They are a type of terrier that are stubburn and will not back down. Two of mine were food aggressive and when they got into a fight over a piece of kibble it was awful. I would have to take a broom or blanket to break them apart. Then one would give the other the evil eye for the rest of the day. Crate training a must. One thing I didn't know was that dogs need socialized at a very young age. Around week 16 can be a fear period and need extra socialization. No "poor baby" just good encouragement. I have a westie now and I worked hard to walk in city and expose him to everything I could think of. Now he could be standing in front of a motorcycle starting up and not be bothered. Thunder bothers him I guess because he can't see it. He's still a barker but he is better about it. Parvo can be a problem for young dogs until they have all thier vacinations so only bring them around dogs you know and keep out of dog parks (or anywhere else there are unknown dogs) You may know all of this but thought I'd chime in. Have fun with the new puppy. They are wonderful. Pat
  10. Hi Joan, I am selling my machine, but it is a Discovery and they do not have stitch regulators. I have all kinds of CL products and they work great without the SR. I also use the boards and they are great too. They are much easier than a panto and easy to keep the smooth flow. If someone has problems with their stitching without the SR these products will not help that situation. Even stitches are learned with practice, practice, practice. Hope this helps Pat
  11. Hi, My name is Pat. I live in Portland Maine. I am thinking about selling my APQS Discovery with table, supplies, patterns, batting, thread, and Circle Lord. I would like $6,500 for everything. I ran a business so this machine would be good for start up or just your own quilting. I maybe moving to Florida and can't take it with me. What I have in the CL is around $3,000 alone. I paid $6,500 for just the machine head without table. The Discovery is similar to the Lenni but no Stitch regulator 20" throat. It has all the other gizmos like needle up down, one stitch, Lazer, and is very light weight (37 lbs?). Being so light is great for free motion. It also has a hopping foot. Not having a stitch reg has a little longer learning curve. Many quilters turn them off and on once they are good at the type of quilting they like. I run all kinds of different threads no problem and tension is great. I have a 12' table. It is the older style wooden table but it has more usable quilting space than Liberty or Lenni. I have patterns that I have used up to 16". Depending on where you live I maybe able to help with set up and give you a lesson. I would rather have it picked up. If I have to ship it would be at your cost. I have machine box but table would need to be packed. Let me know what you think. Email me at: lilacquilter @ yahoo .com (no spaces) Pat
  12. Beautiful Quilt!!! I love piecing Bed size tops. It is praticaly all I did. So when I mentioned to a co-worker (I worked at a Viking dealership) that I was thinking of getting a longarm she said " But you hate quilting!" I confess I hated the basting and wrestling with the DSM but now that I have an APQS Discovery, I love quilting!! I just don't get to piece that much any more. I am taking a break so I can do my own quilts for awhile. You will love a long arm too. If you are looking at low cost machine, look at the APQS Lennie. He is a great deal. I also teach on short arms but you are very limited in the quilting space (4 to 6" designs for bed size quilts). Happy Quilting!! Pat Hutti APQS Discovery So Portland Maine www.huttidesigns.com
  13. OOps it does look like it starts in April 5th. The shop I quilted for is not on the list yet so they (Mainely Sewing Machines a Viking Dealership) must be asigned to May. Thanks for the link!! Pat
  14. I quilted a couple for our local shop in Portland Maine. I think the shops had to have them in by the end of February. The auctions should be in May 2007. I would keep looking on www.quiltpink.com Pat Hutti APQS Discovery South Portland Maine
