  1. There has not been a firmware update for your machine. Have you tried turn off the Surface, Machine and Carriage and turning it all back on? The firmware button was moved it is not accessed from underneath the carriage. You would need to move your pantoshelf out of the way and look up into the carriage from the floor to see the button.
  2. Susan, Is that post from before we talked? Just make sure you really are still working.
  3. Susan, The setting the you are currently using, nest ends, it telling Quilt Path to join the repeats together AND place a partial to file the ends. The partial is the eight design. The extra inches are outside of the quiltable area and have to do with how that partial motif on the edges is created and displayed.
  4. You can duplicate what is quilted, it will just take a little bit of work but Quilt Motion can help you with that. Go into Pantograph. At the top look for the Ruler button. Use the ruler to measure the row that you just quilted. You should be able to get both the height and the width of what was quilted. Then use that to set up your pantograph. Since you are using QP to measure what you need, it should be exactly the same. That way you can then set your alignment mark and have, then repair pattern, release the carriage, move the machine over the place you need to restart at and tap closest stitch.
  5. TaraT, A Spa Treatment is what APQS calls it when we go over the machine and replace any parts that need to be replaced. It also gets deep cleaned and oiled. There is a list of items that we are to go over to make sure that we are not missing anything.
  6. Carmen, There is already a longarm guild in NC. The Carolina Longarm Association. At one point it had 125 members, I think it is closer to 35 right now. I also have an APQS owners group at my showroom in Raleigh. We would love to have you join us if you are wiling to drive a couple hours. The next meeting is on February 9th. Welcome to the APQS family!
  7. Zeke, Welcome to NC! We have a large number of longarmers here. We also have 2 APQS showrooms, 4 APQS Certified Service Technician, a strong group of APQS dealers and a wonderful group of APQS owners in the state. It is a great state to live in, if you are a longarmer. I have a quarterly APQS owners meeting at my showroom, in Raleigh. The next meeting is February 9th. It's called APQS Play Day. We do something maintenance related have show and tell and talk about something longarm related, like working with grids, or freehand fills, in the afternoon. We bring a dish to share for lunch. All APQS owners are welcome, I just ask that you sign up so that I can have enough seats available.
  8. Hi Jeanne, I know we emailed about this too, but I thought I would post it here too in case anyone else has the same questions. Bliss is a upgraded carriage and rail system. It replaces the wheels that would normally ride between the carriage and the rails with a metal dowel rod that runs the length of the frame and a narrow carriage that has metal ball bearing instead of wheels. Because you are running metal on metal, it reduces frixion and make it easier to move the machine. There are still wheels on the head that ride on the carriage. Quilt Guild is a supplement to your stitch regulator. It helps when you are doing small fill work by smoothing out the motor and making it easier to do the fill work. It means that you can do the fill work using the Stitch Regulator instead of using Manual Mode.
  9. I got to play with it this weekend. The Millie30 has all the features of the Millie and more inches in throat space. On a Millie you have about 17.5 inches of quilting space when you measure it with Quilt Path. The Millie30 comes in around 23. They will start shipping in January 2017 and mine is already on order. I freehanded with it and it really does not feel different from my 2014 Millie. I am selling my 2008 Millie to make room for it. Which for me is huge.
