  1. Thanks Holly for the input. Every one that has reported back to me loves the Organ needles. They are all we use in our studio. John
  2. We carry the MR needles. If you want a smaller hole consider the Organ needle that are much like the MR's but without the big hump on the front. We only use Organ needles in our studio now. For pricing see this Forum post http://apqs.com/quiltboard/viewthread.php?tid=20123&page=1#pid244835 John
  3. My client took an inventory today and she has the template holder and a complete collection of the small templates 11 sets for a total of 61 templates. In addition to the Hartley Fence. With Myrna’s book and DVD the retail value is $1310. She is asking 1/2 price plus shipping at this time. Everything is in like new condition. She will consider offers for the Fence package. John
  4. Brenda: I'm sorry but the answer is no. These items for sale are for APQS only. John
  5. Tish: Don't forget to check for needle holes first. Later, John
  6. See this post for the DVD. http://apqs.com/quiltboard/viewthread.php?tid=20150&page=1#pid245042 John
  7. Tish: You asked this question in another post and here was my reply. Tish: Since you asked here goes. The first thing you need to check is to see if you have needle holes in the skipped area. If not you are having long stitches and not skipped stitches and you need to check your encoder wheels. Move your machine only in a horizontal direction then in a vertical direction and see if the skip is in one direction. If so check the encoder wheel on that encoder. Your post makes me think it is an encoder issue. It does not sound like skipped stitches. Let me know and then we will work

  9. Just an update on our new prices. The response has been great to our new lower prices. I still have stock for immediate shipment at great prices. Call or email for more information. John
  10. We also have them in stock for immediate delivery. The Liberty handles are different than the one for the Millie. John
  11. Titanium needles are titanium coated. The issue that Amy what talking about is when you break one of these needles they usually break up on the shaft and jam the machine seriously and the chance of knocking it out of time is great. I have just received a lot of needle information on needles from one of my needle suppliers and it is quite interesting. It has a chart showing needles that are similar and why. We have switched to the Organ needles with the deep scarf and I have sold a lot of them and all the reports I have received have been positive. John John
  12. After thinking a while the lift came out after the table with round legs. You have to use some modifications to install it on a table with square legs. There are two versions of the lift. Congratulations on a great buy. John
  13. From someone who has been around a while I can tell you Amy does a fantastic job and it always willing to help. She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. John
  14. I would use the mounting that comes with the system. The new system is different (Pump and mounting). The older system uses 4 u shaped aluminum pieces that attach to bottom of the rails and attached to the cross members. The new system uses different cross members and screws, washers and drilled and tapped blocks. I don’t think they are interchangeable because the system has been changes. The original system is fine and we have 1 of each in our studio. This price is a steal. If someone wants one you will not find a better price. John
  15. Thanks Irene and also thanks for your order. Enjoy the great weather there. John
  16. The lift requires a mounting adapter not just the u clamps. They might be included with the hydraulics system. You just need to be sure they are included. If they are only 4 years old they should be for the round leg table and have all necessary hardware but the pump uses a different mounting system. The old mounting is perfectly serviceable but the new mounting is easier to install. Kristina you can call me for a better explanation if you like. John
  17. Thanks to Janice and Irene but my post was not completely clear. The Hartly Base Expander is for the Machines that have the Thread Cutter ie. Millennium, Freedom w TC and ULT I w TC. Sorry for any confusion. The Micro Drive has sold but the other items are still available at a great price. John
  18. We shipped several orders today and the highest shipping I think was $3.08. First Class is reasonable in cost. John
  19. We have not decided if we will have a booth at MQS this year. The shipping is not very costly. John
  20. The stencils are still available. Call me for information. John
  21. Please contact me at the studio and I will put you in touch with the seller. The HF and Base expander are for the Millennium/Freedom/UltI frame. The stencils fit the Hartley Fence. John
  22. What year machine do you have? John
  23. Thanks everyone for the kind words. You only turn "39" once. LOL I am still a legend "in my mind". Did you notice how things change as you get older and you find yourself saying 30 years ago I.........oops? Thanks for being a great group. John
