  1. Patty, APQS on You Tube and Quilted Joy Clubhouse (Angela Huffman)on You Tube are both great sites for videos. I'm not sure if Myrna Ficken has videos but not sure if she has them online but your could google her. Be sure to join the I love APQS group on Facebook also. This should et you started.
  2. I just looked to see what a 18-8 is, that's not the machine I have. I have the smaller one that came out first Viking MegaQuilter. Darn sorry I didn't know about the 18-8.
  3. Just asking. I have the Mega Quilter sewing machine which I never used but I live in Michigan.
  4. You might want to contact Boss Quilter at her Facebook page or website.
  5. Go to the APQS website and click on "shop". Go to parts or just do a search. Here is the URL|Or|searchlike~ p.nm~light|Or|searchlike~ p.ds~light|Or|searchlike~ p.search_terms~light|Or|searchlike~ p.child_rollup_search_terms~light)|And|(searchlike~p.sku~bulb|Or|searchlike~ p.nm~bulb|Or|searchlike~ p.ds~bulb|Or|searchlike~ p.search_terms~bulb|Or|searchlike~ p.child_rollup_search_terms~bulb)&search_keyword=light%20bulb
  6. No issues with putting the machines on the second floor. Ensure your table is level. Being on the second floor should not cause vibrations.
  7. Shana, I agree you have to be careful due to trolls etc. I couldn't read the post your were referring to but I know they are here. I usually look really close at the number of posts the person has submitted and the topic title before answering something. The forum isn't what it used to be, most members and new owners have migrated to the Facebook Group but I still love the forum. I find the "search" element to be easy to use. I miss the closeness this group had too. I get lost on Facebook, here this minute gone the next, LOL.
  8. I love my Oliso Pro 1600 iron. It does a great job and I love the ITOUCH TECHNOLOGY (Scorchguards lower with the touch of your hand and lifts when you have stopped ironing, preventing burns, scorching and tipping). The only problem I've had with it, is when using other brands of irons, I tend to forget to prop them upright. I got around 5 years out of my first one before it began to leak water. I'm been wanting to try the Reliable Velocity 200IR Iron recommended by Fons and Porter and American Quilters Society but haven't. I can't seem to give up my Oliso. If you want a heavy iron, you can't go wrong with an old model Black and Decker. I have one that I never put water in, when I want to iron something with positively no steam. PS: I'm not a Rowenta fan because of the expense and leaks.
  9. Have you tried cleaning your table with alcohol or windex (no ammonia type)? Clean your wheels also, check for hidden threads in and around the wheels. I'm trying to visualize where your problem is?
  10. Mine had her own room on the second floor for 6 years, not one problem. If you can get the frame upstairs, you'll be good to go. Mine set on carpet, don't know about others here.
