    NollR got a reaction from ORNurse56 in 2010 APQS Lenni for Sale Central PA 10' table, $6,000 OBO   
    Hi All,
     
    It's time to sell my second long arm machine.
    I'm the 3rd owner for this machine. I bought it near the end of 2010 from a lady in Boyertown, PA. She bought it to use it for personal use off  a lady who bought it new from APQS to start a business I believe which didn't happen. She sold it because it was too much for her and she needed the room. I know she told me she had it serviced by the PA APQS rep before selling it to me. . I had 2 or 3 people who took lessons on it with me, but then never rented time on it.  So I have used it for some quilting while I had others on my large frame. It has been well maintained and used by me for maybe a few dozen quilts.
    I bought this machine as a second machine ( I have an older Milie) with the intention of starting a long arm rental business in a rented place. That never worked out in this area. I had 2 ladies take beginning lessons on the machine (where I was with them continually) but then never had anyone rent time on it. So I used it to work on quilts the few days I was at my store since I use my Millie for everything. After I closed my store in the fall of 2013, I set the machine up at home in case I got custom quilts that needed to stay on my larger frame for a time so that I could work on other quilts. I did use it a bit, but not enough to warrant keeping it (a dozen or so quilts at the most). It has always been in a place where it was heated and air conditioned. I maintained it and oiled it when used. The past year especially it has not been used as I have been dealing with breast cancer since the beginning of the year. now that I'm getting back to somewhat normal and starting to get back to work, I realized that it's better to sell this machine to someone else.   You can look on the APQS website for the specs on the machine which is close to my machine. I know they changed the handle design. I know I have an original brochure and picture somewhere that I can take a picture of and send to you if you like.   I did update the table and carriage system sometime in 2011.  The current table is black with one piece rails and an IQ carriage system. I didn't want to spend $3,000 to upgrade to the Bliss table and system and this was a less expensive alternative. It runs smoother that the original table and I haven't had problems with it. When I closed my store and disassembled it, I set it up in my family room (first picture, machine on the left). I then took it down for space and later reset it back up in a spare room ( second picture). Then my son moved back in temporarily after college and down it came again. Now I don't want to reset it back up since I mainly use my large machine for the little quilting I still do.

    APQS 2010 Lenni longarm quilting machine
    No, I AM NOT going out of business.
    This is my SECOND long arm machine. For those of you that remember my store, this is the machine I had set up there.
    It is just sitting, having taken it apart last May after being reset back up in my home. It's a shame because it is a wonderful, high quality machine for someone.
    It is on a 10 foot table and includes extras such as the base for doing ruler work, zippered leaders with extra sets for quilts, a new brake system, horizontal spool holder, micro drive handles, extra bobbin cases and bobbins.
    The pictures  show the last quilt I quilted on this machine and the machine on the left when it was set up in another room.
     
    I'm asking $6,000 or best offer PICKUP ONLY.
    If you have any other questions or interest, please contact me through here or the following:

    Roseann, glad to hear you're on the road to recovery. Cancer has taken the lives of both my grandfather and my father so I know how important it is to take life one day at a time. Quilting is my outlet from the day to day stress of life, and it helps me appreciate the beauty of life when the ugly starts to interfere. I wish you all the best with your recovery as well as rebuilding your quilting to the point that makes you happy. Prayers and best wishes to you.
    Happy Quilting,

    NollR got a reaction from Gail O in How many quilts per month?   
    I was doing ALOT per month (both overall and custom) for many years  until cancer entered my life. I spent most of 2016 not working (yes I pretty much depleted my business account) Now I'm back to quilting but nowhere what I did before. First of all I don't have the stamina because of Tamoxifen and cumulative effects even a year out and second sometimes I just don't want to. It's hard now as we will have 2 in college for almost the next 10 years, but at least I'm here for my family. Just think of what your priorities are at the present time and adjust them accordingly because life can change in an instant.

    The doctors say EM is cancer free--no leukemia. Today she had the broviac line removed She is attending school as she can between continued visits to clinic to monitor blood, kidneys, etc. She was diagnosed on 3/4/16 and the past few months have been rough.
    Thank you for your prayers. The family believes strongly in prayer.

    Roseann, glad to hear you are doing better. I wish I lived closer because that would be the great size for custom hand guided quilting. Wishing you the best with your health and hope you have many many more years of quilting.

    NollR got a reaction from dbams in Time has come to sell my second machine 2010 Lenni   
    Hi all,
     
    I'm just getting feelers out there for now, but I will be selling my 2010 Lenni that was my second machine in the very near future. I'm waiting on the new braking system that I just ordered for it to come.
     
    As some of you may have remembered, I was diagnosed with breast cancer early this year and spent most of this year dealing with most of the "stuff" that comes with that. Now 2 major surgeries later, I'm finally going to force myself back to long arm quilting after Labor Day. But I have had this machine (I'm the 3rd owner) but it has only been lightly  ( and I mean lightly used - maybe about 2 dozen quilts at the most).  I will be putting up pictures, plus include some extras that I've added and upgraded. I would like to not ship it (I'm located in central PA, Elysburg, PA). It is a good machine and has worked very well for me. The knob brakes wore out, hence the reason I spent the money to put new ones on.
     
    For now you can email me rosenoll2008@gmail.com or message me on here ( I don't get on here much since breast cancer entered my life).
     
    Thank you all for thinking of me and praying for me over the past months. I'm trying to get back to "normal" . It's been quite a journey and eye opener.

    NollR reacted to Quilting Heidi in Twins and news   
    Well today is a big day for me.  I have formally resigned from my job and will retire as of Sept. 30th.  I actually only have 12.87 days to work, 102.96 hrs but whose counting.  In about 2 min. I'll only have 95.96 minutes :-) the remaining time I will have to use my vacation time because we can no longer be paid out.  I will be keeping the twins full time when my daughter goes back to work.  On that note they are growing and doing well.  Landon is now up to 8.4 lbs!  We are doing out best to fatten him up.  They are so precious, lots of work but precious.  I've taken on the 8 pm and 11 pm feedings and I wouldn't trade it for anything!  They grow up so fast it will be over in a blink of an eye.  We took them last week for a photography session.  Anybody in the Albany area if you want the information on the photographer let me know, she is more than worth the money!  Fabulous session.  I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures.  This was what we woke to as our teaser this morning.  Can you stand it?  I can't!  I want a mural of it.  Just makes me smile!

    This is the first time I'm  on here since my surgery in February. I'm doing well - not 100% but getting there.
     
     After no risk factors, I was diagnosed with invasive lobular carcinoma in early January. My oncologist told me I shouldn't have gotten cancer - but I did. My breast cancer ended up being stage 2 and was hidden in the mammogram because of dense breast tissue. Thankfully I was sent for an  ultrasound  at the same time, which caught it because I couldn't feel anything! Know your breast density girls and it you have heterogeneously dense or extremely dense breasts , talk to your doctor for additional screening - it could save your life! It did mine!!
     
    Thankfully no chemo is in the future for me - but 10 years on hormone therapy. I also have 1 maybe 2 more surgeries to finish the reconstruction process.  I actually sat at my sewing machine last week and sewed for the first time in months. This week I'm going to load one of my quilts on my long arm frame to quilt it to see how I can handle standing and working all day. I need to get back to work for something to do and also for the income!
     
    Thanks for all the prayers ! Support cancer research - there WILL be cures in the future!

    The doctor's our touting the 3-D mammogram which most insurance won't cover (Medicare will). It's an extra $60 but well worth the piece of mind.
