  1. If your light is flickering you need to replace the light bulb... you don't need a whole new light bar. You can get the light bulbs from APQS or Amazon
  2. I would contact your local APQS dealer for your area and let them know what you are looking for. They sometimes take in on trade used machines or may know of someone wanting to sell privately. Also, continue to check the machines on the APQS web site... they sometimes have demo's for sale at a nice discount.
  3. don't give your talents away... you can charge per inch or by the hour. For a small baby quilt that is not custom, but more of a pantograph edge to edge design, I would charge one lump sum fee. My minimum fee is $40 plus thread and batting. I do not do custom work, only edge to edge designs mainly pantographs. I charge by the inch for larger quilts... example for a quilt that is 70x95 = 6,650x.01= $66.50
  4. Where in Idaho? Can you change out the feet and does it have a laser light?
  5. Your quilts are lovely. I haven't seen a colorway like this one before.. absolutely STUNNING!!
  6. It looks like the last posting on their FB page was 11/2018 If I were you I would start proceedings to get your money back
  7. This normally a clue that the light is going out. However, you can take the bulb out rock it back and forth a couple times and then re insert it. I have done this a few times and it always works for me until I can get a replacement bulb
  8. what were you thinking for the whole lot?
  9. I also notice that occasionally I will see where there is some shifting even with basting both left/right sides with each advancement. When quilting right to left consistently..the stitches and pull of the machine going over the quilt, will make the top shift ever so slightly. To avoid this, quilt from both directions... right to left next row left to right. Some panto patterns will make this difficult to do both directions. I haven't found another way to do panto's to avoid the shifting.
  10. Where are you located and what is the asking price?
  11. What year is this machine? when was it last serviced? One owner? does the custom wooden bars come with it? by the way, interesting lighting system...does it add more weight to the machine head?
