  1. I read that somewhere once that you had to change the gears but I have not heard anything about it since. I would think APQS would have told me when I ordered the parts from them.
  2. I took my Millie by the front handles and decided to operate on her. I bought all the necessary parts to make her an M bobbin. I took all her L parts out. I sanded the shaft and wiped it off , greased the inside where the shaft goes. I installed the M guts and I am proud to say everything went very good. She is sewing like a champ. Carol
  3. I purchased yesterday an Intelliquilter Computer System for my 2006 Millie. I am so excited!!! I'm doing the happyh dance. Will have it in under 2 weeks. Installation included whoop whoop

  8. yes I will take the machine. Can I pick it up this coming Monday? the 13th Where in PA do you live. Thanks Carol
  9. I loosened the whole assembly held on to it and barely pulled it away from the machine, them screwed it back in tight. Flip the spring with your finger and see if it snaps back or moves. It is possible for the spring to get too close between the machine and the tension assembly and get pinched too tight. Carol
  10. Sharps sewing parts has them cheaper and free shipping on e-bay
  11. I quilted 2 layers of batting with no problem. 8 oz and a 6 oz polyester batting and did not have any slipping between the layers. I used all the rollers on the machine. Did not make a significant change in the warmth factor. Carol
  12. It looks like to me that she needs to sew on both side borders and then sew both end borders. Looks like terminating the corners at the end of each corner she is going around the corner with one continuous strip. Carol
