  1. You are always a wealth of information. Thanks, Dawn!!
  2. I've got the picture down to 427 MB. How small does it have to be? I'm still getting a too big message. Arg!
  3. Let's see if the pic will come through this time...
  4. Some gals want this quilted, and fast, to complete in time for their raffle. They sent a picture and want custom quilting. When I look at it, it just screams for all kinds of custom work....and the time that goes with it. Any suggestions for a time-friendly custom job? They do want some sort of motif in each of the solid blocks. Not sure if I can make it happen as quickly as they need it. Hmmmm.....
  5. I just noticed in the scrolling advertisement section on the main page that APQS is offering an M-sized bobbin, but have not been able to locate much more information than that. Will the tension and stitch quality still be as good as with the smart bobbin or smaller bobbin? Will it be possible to retrofit older machines with the larger bobbin? I sure would be wonderful not to reload so often if I could still keep the same quality. Anyone have any more information on this? Very curious! Amy
  6. If any of you ever have the same problem I described in my previous post...the motherboard and daughterboard both have to be replaced. Thank the Lord for Mark sending the Amazing Connie Keller to rescue my Millie! Amy
  7. I was going along in stitch regulator mode and my Millie just stopped stitching. I have checked all of the wire connections and turned the machine on and off, but it will not stitch in manual or regulated mode. Both chanel locks are responding, thread cutter is working, and the single stitch function is working. I am going to get a call in to Amy tomorrow, but I teach during the day and am afraid I will not be able to talk to her while standing next to the machine. Has anyone had this same problem that could tell me what they found the problem to be? I am trying not to panic with a customer quilt only partially finished and 4 more in line. Thanks for any advice! =0) Amy
  8. - 1992 Ultimate 1 - Needle stop in "up" position - 14 foot table Motor, wheels, and canvas leaders all replaced in 2008. I also added an extra bracket to add a leveling bar which prevents the need to adjust the take-up roller as quilting progresses. No stitch-regulator, but makes beautiful stitches and is a work horse! Asking $5,000 or better offer. I am located just outside of Dallas, Texas. Buyer must pick up. Email me at amyfaith@sbcglobal.net if you are interested or have additional questions. I can only figure out to how to post on picture, but can send more to you. Amy
  9. Thanks for all of the replies - you guys are awesome! Amy
  10. I have a FANTASTIC rep that I am working with. I placed my deposit over the phone to get the quilt show special (the show is out of town and I could not attend). She will be back in town in a couple of days and will give me all of the little specifics. I just did not take the time to ask her about the smaller accessories and was anxious, so I figured I would throw the question out there. I sure did not want to give the impression that my rep was falling down on the job (smile). You know how excited us new kids get! Thanks for the information. Amy
  11. I am in the process of bringing two babies home! I am almost 10 weeks along with our first little one and in the process or ordering a Millie! I have put down my deposit, but not seen the specifics on the small details. I know it comes with some needles, thread, bobbins, patters....but anyone have an idea of how many needles or which patterns? I am just so excited! If my little jelly bean wasn't making me feel so crummy, I might actually do a cart wheel! Amy
  12. The back of the quilt is muslin. Would it look bad to stitch the black area with the same cream color? The black does have a lot of floral print going on. I am afraid that if I quilt that area in black it will be a big HELLO on the back. I was also thinking McTavishing would look great. I am going to do some practicing and see if I can get up the confidence to do it. Amy
  13. I have gotten PPP in and quilted quilts for family on my longarm, but I just got my first official customer today! I am excited and a little freaked out. I do a full float. Those tiny scallops are going to be...um...fun. The quilt is hand pieced and "close" to being square - a good pressing should help most of that. She gave me the top and just wants me to take care of the rest. All I know for sure to do is outline the girls 1/4 inch around. As you can see, not all of the girls are in the same place. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I am not a pro yet - cross hatching is out. The more freehand design the better. I just do not have the experience to imagine what would look good where and stay true to the era. Thank so much for any advise =) Amy
