    Selling my 1990 Ultimate I with I/S

    It’s the stitch regulation from same company as Intelliquilter. It’s a high quality system. And the Ultimate I is the mama of the Millie, the same machine without the bells and whistles. So the same quality machine upgraded with I/S. Thanks for asking!

    Selling my 1990 Ultimate I with I/S

    Thank you Jim. This has been my baby, and well taken care of. Before me she was purchased for a drapery business to sew long yardage’s of drape and lining pieces together, but in short order they preferred to do it by sit down industrial and took the Ulti I down. They then stored her for quite a few years at their business. I purchased and, to make sure everything was working perfect I did the maintenance and upgrades as listed in the main post. I’m not sure they were necessary but I wanted to start fresh, so I just went ahead and did them. For the setup’s age, it really hasn’t been used much. I’d keep but I have no room plus I now have a blissed Freddie that I can so easily use with my crabby shoulders. I’m sure someone is out there wanting to get an inexpensive start with an outstanding quality machine. Or there surely is someone considering going computerized. My machine can be computerized with the Intelliquilter system so easily and up and going for so much less expense than a new computerized system. Plus we are willing to deliver depending on the location as stated in the post. Thanks again, Jim, for your shoutout. Hope all is well with you! Marci
  5. Hi friends, I’ve tried locally to sell my used Ultimate I but there are several in the area with machines already established. I’m running into the ‘that’s an old machine’ excuse, but we know it’s a great machine, especially if wanting to upgrade to a computerized quilting setup. Which I do not. So... Here’s what I’m selling for $3800. **I will post to the Machines for Sale Page when I am at a regular computer. For some reason the only place I can get to on my phone today is this one. Ultimate I (upgraded to I/S Turbo in 2012 but used little due to two shoulder surgeries) with the 14’ frame with older upgraded legs (square tube but newer than the original) that I bought used from APQS, newer carriage, M&M wheels, new tension assembly, and new hook assembly (I hope that’s the right term!). Because of my shoulder issues I added some bike handle grips and a cup holder for my supplies on the front handles that I’ll remove yet. The ruler base in the pics is one I made and doesn’t go with it but will have the original in place. We could deliver, DEPENDING on location, for a fee. That can be discussed with an interested party. PM me here and I’ll get back to you.

    ? About Laser Light on '09 Freedom

    Thank you, Barb! I haven't used it yet because I was afraid I was missing something. Now I feel comfortable to let loose!
  8. Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I hope your day is blessed with comforting food and friends and family! Its just the Mr and myself this year. We both just want good hearty beef stew and garlic bread, so that's all cooking now. We're getting down to the last 10-ish pounds of garlic remaining, so I've been processing it into powder and dehydrated minced (we grow all natural (organic w/o the certification) garlic) so you can imagine what smell my house is filled with! It's strong, but smells so good with the beef cooking. Being so very thankful with all we've been blessed with this year I'm taking a break from the kitchen to go get to know my new-to-me Freedom. One thing I'm finding quite different from my I/S on my Ulti I is the laser light connection. Is it right that when I turn the Freedom on the laser light comes on and stays on unless I pull the RCA plug connection? I asked the seller who said it always just came on and stayed on while powered up. Did she, and now me, miss a button or switch? Thanks, in advance, for your knowledge. And again, Happy Thanksgiving all!

    ? About Hydraulic Lift Removal to Unassemble Table

    Thanks Zeke. We've got it all home now, and as soon as I make room we'll be reassembling.
  11. Hi all, Tomorrow we go pick up the 2009 Freedom I bought. The table has the hydraulic lift on it, and I'm wondering what all needs to be disassembled to take the table apart to load and move it? Does each leg's lift have to be removed as well as the pump and transformer? I'm sort of a wreck worrying that something is going to get damaged in the move, and I so want to avoid that. It also has the quilt advance - anything I need to know about that as well? Thanks, in advance, for any and all imput!
  12. SOLD!! To me!! Was wonderful to meet you, Joyce (and the drive to the river was beautiful!)

    Update: Memory Quilts and a FREEDOM Purchase!

    Sewingpup, I'm sorry for the loss of your brother, it's hard to process the loss of a sibling so young, isn't it? As for your shoulder, I know exactly what you're going through with your recooperation. I wish you a full return to movement and joint freedom! My first one took almost a couple years to not be hurting, but they did extensive bone work because of a defect in the bone shape from birth. I just wish it hadn't taken so many years to get them to deal with it. Then five years later they did the left one, same problem but with a tear as well. That one took about a year and a half, but I knew what to do and not to do. Both surgeries also included the AC joint like you had as well. Keep up on your therapy, and do use ice - icing my shoulder was my friend. Regular sewing still gives me some pain. I think it's the sitting and arms forward moving fabric under the needle. But I truly can't complain compared to what I dealt with before. ETA: I used a mix of half isopropyl alcohol and distilled water in a double layered freezer bag and freeze that. When I need to ice my shoulders I take it out of the freezer and break it up easily and it forms to the shoulder so well, it's like hard slush. Keep a hand towel between your skin and the bag, though, and only for up to 20 minutes at a time.

    Update: Memory Quilts and a FREEDOM Purchase!

    Thank you, Gator. I wondered where everyone was at. I'll have to check that FB group out. But I do like the forum here. I just was hurting for so long that I could seldom use my machine and stopped participating. But I hope to engage here again and meet new people and gain new ideas and hopefully help others, too.

    Update: Memory Quilts and a FREEDOM Purchase!

    Thank you, Vickie. i have an update on that, but I'm still just as excited! I found a lightly used 2009 Freedom only 65 miles away, went and test drove it and purchased it. It has the hydraulic lift as well as the quilt advance, and I'm upgrading the table to Bliss. So all the things I need! I'll be bringing it home at the end of the month!
