Will help take down and AND also help set up if local delivery. Training session included with purchase if local. Located on Long Island, NY.
  3. I found this on the APQS Forum... You would have to contact a local welder. Shortening the rails AND the rollers requires some heavy machine muscle. The end of the rollers will have to be reattached but it can be done and people have been happy with the process. I have not found a post with regards to the cost. Hope this helps. Kim
  4. I have the question you asked put out to other dealers and will get back to you as soon as I het a response. Are you local to Long Island?
  5. Machine still available for sale. Don't pass this one up...Bliss installed and helps this Millie move like butter! Not to mention that you won't need to make table adjustments because of Bliss!

  7. Crazy, glad that it was over quickly but sorry to hear that your Millie is down. Hope it's resolved quickly for you.
  8. When she states closer to 6:30, yes. It is as if you are looking at a clock. If you're nervous about checking the hopping foot you can call service and they'll help you. Good luck!
  9. I have had to adjust my hopping foot when this happens. I've pasted a reply Dawn gave to a previous post. Hope this helps. Kim That is commonly referred to as a "walking stitch". It happens when the needle deflects slightly left and right as you push the machine away. If you've already turned your needle eye closer to 6:30, then check the height of the hopping foot. Turn the fly wheel by hand until the needle is at the lowest position. Then slide a single business card underneath from all sides. You should feel slight friction on all sides. If the foot is not level, or is too high, those walking stitches become more pronounced because the fabric sandwich isn't held tightly between the foot and the needle plate at the instant the stitch forms. Here's how to adjust the foot if necessary: Hopping foot adjust.pdf 774.04KB 101 downloads If the foot isn't level, then remove the needle. insert a flat blade screwdriver inside the foot from the top (where the needle used to be. Put the tip of the screwdriver under the low side of the foot, and then gently press down on the handle of the screwdriver while the other end rests on the other top edge of the foot. This will force the screwdriver tip up, thereby bending the foot back in place. Use gentle pressure, and then re-check the foot. Repeat if needed.
