  1. Search the Forum for the section "APQS Machines" and under that - "For Sale - Used Quilting Machines". All kinds of machines are listed. Also check out Longarm University where Cindy Roth lists machines that people want to sell.
  2. These are listed on Longarm university Machine: APQS Millennium, 12 foot tableLocation: Minneapolis, MNPrice: $7,900Contact: lba0718@hotmail.com This machine is the top of the APQS line of long arm quilting machines. It is suitable for personal or business quilting use - it runs beautifully and it has been well maintained with smooth, new wheels and a brand new motor. The 12 foot table will quilt a king size quilt. One of the best characteristics about this 2004 “Millie” (26 inch throat) is that I can always count on having perfect thread tension and I can use all the pretty threads. As a
  3. I agree there is work available. I am a hobby quilter, but I am often asked if I will quilt for someone. I do a few now and then, but I do not want a business. Make your work visible and you can keep busy.
  4. I love all the border treatments. Very pretty.
  5. I have duplicates of 2 pantos I have. Would love to sell them. Both from Urban Elementz Spider Lily by Patricia Ritter - brand new, never used. https://www.urbanelementz.com/spider-lily.html Fanfare Grande Set by Patricia Ritter https://www.urbanelementz.com/fanfare-grande-set.html Asking $32 for both. Includes shipping in US Thanks for looking. Chris
  6. I am in Washington state and have a 12' Innova table for sale. It is for an 18" machine. If interested, let me know. Chris
  7. The Pfaff sewing machine is a work horse. It is one of the last models made in Germany. They are now made in Japan and have lots of plastic parts. If the machine is in good working condition and has all the original accessories, you should be able to get $500-$800 for it. I have seen them for more than that.
  8. I like the colors you chose. The quilt turned out gorgeous! It has to feel good using up stash fabric!
  9. I use GOOP hand cleaner or GOJO from the automotive store to get all grease or oil stains out. Good luck. Chris
  10. your quilting space is the throat space, less the take up roller plus the thickness of the quilt as it rolls up on the take up roller. The larger/longer your quilt is, the more space it takes up in the throat of the machine, so the narrower each quilting pass gets. You can use a pantograph that fits the width of the last pass you can do on a quilt. I hope that makes sense to you.
  11. Spider Lily is just the pantograph - 9" wide and 144" long Fanfare is the set - pantograph 10" wide and 144" long, 4 1/2" border , 2 corner settings, 2 triangle settings and 2 block settings. So yes on Fanfare, but Spider Lily is just the pantograph Chris (I have updated the links above to work with the new web sight)
  12. I have 2 pantographs that I would like to sell. The Spider Lily pantograph is brand new, still in the plastic wrapping. The Fanfare Grande set has hardly been used. I ended up with duplicates when I bought a used group from someone who upgraded to computer. New they would be $48 and $16.50 each. (I am asking $36. for both - which includes shipping.) New price $32. - which includes shipping. Chris https://www.urbanelementz.com/spider-lily.html https://www.urbanelementz.com/fanfare-grande-set.html
  13. Mercedes, They can be found on the Urban Elementz web site. Just click on the link I provided. They did announce that they were getting a "new look" , so it may be a day or two before you can access their site. Chris

  15. If you store them in buckets, clothes pins clipped to the top with the design name written on it can help organize them.
  16. I like the quilting designs you chose. It gives it great texture without competing with the piecing or over quilting it. She has to love what you did!
  17. If it's not quilted all the way to the edge, you could sew the ruffle with right sides together to the top, open it out and hand sew the backing to the ruffle. If it is quilted all the way to the edge, you can sew the ruffle to the quilted tree skirt with a strip of bias tape on top of the ruffle, then open it out and hand stitch the bias tape to the backing - covering the raw seam edge. One last option - if you have a serger, serge the ruffle to the quilted top, open it out and top stitch through the serged seam. Your tree skirt is pretty. :-)
