  1. Just to let everyone one know we still stock supplies for your APQS machines. We have been able to hold the prices for some time but no guarnties for the future. If you order soon we can supply at the listed prices. Thanks all, We are still an authorized Hartley dealer and can supply all your Hartley products needs. Of course we still represent CompuQuilter.

  2. Debi:

    I misspoke we carry the aluminum with the notch. I have never seen a steel one with the notch and am planning on discussing this with Mark tomorrow. The steel ones we carry are the ones we have always carried and we have sold many of them with no issues. This is the bobbin we used in our Millenniums in our studio for years. After I talk to Mark I will re-post his comments.

    When APQS switched to aluminum we kept using the steel ones. I think 9 Bobbin cases and 100 steel bobbins are a great buy.

  3. We have been in business since 1996 without a break. We will again be a Bronze sponsor (Junior non computerized) at MQS in 2012, say hi to Mary (if you can get her to stop for a minute) or Janet. I just have not been posting on the chat. I thought that many APQS owners would want to buy needles, bobbins and bobbin cases for a great price with no handling charges (we only charge exact shipping costs and we pay for the packaging). Thanks to the APQS owners who have contacted us with orders and we look forward to re-connecting with our APQS friends. You can call me directly at 816-686-7636. Thanks everyone.

    9/4/2010 Prices subject to change without notice.

    Country Lane Quilting INC. Rev4

  6. The new proud owner of this great Liberty picked it up today and was thrilled with it (It is like new in every way). I'm sure she will be happy with it. Thanks for all the emails we received expressing interest after the price reduction.

    We do have two 2008 Millenniums for sale if anyone is interested check them out at www.countrylanewuilting.com and click on used machines. One is owned by a client and one is owned by Country Lane Quilting. If you are interested there might be some room for negotiations.

  7. Hopping foot height should be .030 inch. I use a feeler gage. (From an auto parts store or store that sells tools.) This way you don't have to worry about the thickness of business cards which vary. I may address this issue in my next column in "On Track" magazine. All IMQS members receive it with their membership. www.imqa.org

    For you that do not know I write a Tech. article every other issue.

  8. Place the needle bar in the lowest position (the hopping foot will be in the lowest position also) and use the hole you described only newer machines have the cap. The screw that holds the hopping foot in place is not straight in but at a bit of an angle. It is a challenge but possible. When we were dealers several of the dealers complained that it was hard to adjust, than the hole was made larger and capped with a plastic plug.

    Use a flashlight to view through the hole to see the position of the slot in the screw.

    You will need a good quality sharp flat bladed screwdriver that fits the screw.

    Hope this get you going.
