  1. I am so sorry to hear about your change in circumstances. If you are on fb, also consider marketing on Sew it's for sale. I have sold several things there. Best of luck! I have that same cutting table, I still use it ? still love it! Plus it is quite versatile. Mindy Mae
  2. Hi Bonnie, I don't know if you are on fb, but there is also a site called Sew It's for Sale - you may be interested in marketing your machine on. I have sold a couple big ticket machines on there. No commission - it is just a group that helps people get together to buy/sell. Good luck!! Mindy Mae
  3. This sounds like really exciting news!!! Mindy Mae

    Practice samplers

    I am doing some practice on panels - the big & small, just to try some new things. I am not that experienced and my poor Millie was 'put on ice' for about 3 yrs, due to a home flood & subsequent move. Now she is finally back up and 'in her own domain' and I am getting into her space and starting all over again w/ free motion/ hand guided quilting. I am also doing some of Angela Hoffman's quilt challenge things from fb. The size, for me, are basically lap quilt or event wall hanging sizes. Mindy Mae
  6. I have tried to pm IQ'd, but the message comes back that she cannot receive messages. Anyone else viewing have suggestions? Granola girl
  7. Hello all! Is anyone out there thinking of selling their IQ? I am in NW Fla. I have contacted people saying they were selling - but silence reigned, so I presume they are not or it is sold. Perhaps you may be toying with the idea... Drop me a note - I have a 2010 Millie w/ bliss and would love, love to IQ her. Comments about the IQ also welcome & any advice or recommendations. THANKS!!! Granola girl MindyMae
  8. Hi TJG777, Is there a price available ?

    Needle Breaks

    I actually try to stay off stitch regulator. For me, I started free motion embroidery back in 1982, so I move my hands 'a little differently', I think than someone who may be used to stitch regulator. Perhaps your speed in stitch regulator isn't matching the 'cadence' of the movement of your hands. Just a thought. Maybe speed up your speed in stitch regulator or turn it off and 'be completely free'! Melinda
  11. Hi Jolene - This may be a silly question - does this mean you kept your IQ system for the new Millie 30? If not, are you selling your IQ system then? I am in Pensacola as well - we should get together! I would love to see your IQ & new Millie in action. I have been 'coveting' getting IQ for years.... just a bit nervous about the plunge. Melinda
  12. Hi Julia, I am very interested in the you IQ system. Were you able to look up the tablet, memory capabilities, and what parts may be needed - IE installation kit info... I have a 2011 Millie w/ bliss, & I am in NW Florida - for shipping reference. If you could get back to me that would be great! Thank you!! Melinda

    Leader grip casing - How to sew the casing on the longarm

    Hi Jamie, I have red snappers and when I sewed the tube on my leaders, I just used the long arm with a horizontal channel lock on. I just measured the leader 'fold over', marked or pinned in place then stitched it all one by one on the l. a. I hope this helps, I don't know what other people have done. Good luck Melinda
  14. Hi Angie, It may be possible to find a Handi quilter here, however this is an APQS longarm forum, so not as likely.. You could look on 'Sew it's for sale' on facebook though and may have a greater likelihood at finding a Crown Jewel there. Granola girl
