  1. I still couldn't find your post of FB - if you'll send me a Friend Request (Barbara Mayfield/Barbara Jeanne Mayfield), I'll make sure you get any answers you need!
  2. I'll look for your post. FB is definitely the fastest place to get help - usually!
  3. Lucy, do both of your back toggles act the same way? And I looked for your Facebook post but didn't see it - which page did you post to?
  4. Susan, I'm not familiar with Tri-Flow lubricant but I've never seen it used on an APQS machine. Take a look at the Cleaning and Oiling instructions that came with your Lucey - those instructions keep our machines ticking along as they should!
  5. Patti, can you post photos of the machine and its tag? We may be able to help identify the manufacturer. I'd say APQS, except that they're not the only manufacturer in Iowa. It's probably not worth cleaning up for resale, but if it's in working condition, you can still quilt with it.
  6. Sharon, I'll take the Scoop Foot! How do you want to do this? I can mail you a check or give you cc info over the phone.
  7. The update started rolling out in late 2019 and was expected to be complete by now. Email - chances are that your update notice wound up in your spam folder or APQS didn't have a correct email address for you. Update is easy, shouldn't take you long to complete! If you're a Facebook user, you should have seen the notices on the QP FB page, as well.
  8. If you go to Facebook and search for the "We Love APQS" group, there's a Millie/Freddie manual in the Files Section.
  9. Quilterguy, we need to get you onto the QP FB page. Friend me, Angela Hugli Clark or Heidi Patterson, include a message that you own QP and need help, and we'll get you added. Once you're in the group, you can post the specifics of your problem and get immediate assistance. Be sure to include either a screenshot of your error message, or the Runtime Error #, so we can diagnose properly.
  10. Barbra, you would be better off if you started a new topic for this, rather than tack it on to an existing thread. Or go to the We Love APQS page on Facebook. But I'm betting the solution is an easy one: it sounds like your needle is in backwards. Locking in the lowest position is a classic symptom. Check that the groove that runs the length of the needle is facing front (towards you as you stand at the machine). If that's not it, give APQS a call - they can walk you through other diagnostics.
  11. I find nothing in the archives about the drive belt replacement. Call or email APQS Service - I'm sure they can walk you through it.
  12. Well, that's not polite! Give the Service Department a call on the APQS Toll Free number. I will also see if I can dig up instructions out of our archives.
  13. Hmmmm, looking back at your photo, I don't see screw threads. Send the photo to and ask for their advice.
  14. Donna, you're missing a post which holds a laser pointer (see photo). Send an email to and they'll get you going!
  15. Instructions will come with the part, if you order from APQS.
