  1. Is this still available? I sent you a pm yesterday. Thank you.
  2. There's also a Homesteader on Longarm University
  3. Take a look here: https://mohave.craigslist.org/art/6204138278.html
  4. You might want to contact him---he always seems to have some machines/tables available. You can ask him what he has and price.
  5. Dave Jones is Deloa Jones' husband. He travels all around the US servicing machines, delivering machines, etc. He also will cut down a table if it's too big for your space, etc. With my original ULT, he picked up my machine, serviced it, cut down my table, added quilt advance, added ruler foot, delivered it, set it up, etc.
  6. It's a 2007 Millennium. I was all set(pretty much phone in hand) to call Nolting and make arrangements to have a SR put on my ULT and then slowly upgrade other things i.e. front handles, etc., when the ad on this site for the "storm sale Millie" popped up. I immediately contacted the person posting the listing and she sent me pictures and we conversed. She didn't want to mess with "clean, service, and repair(if need be), and insurance gave her enough to order a new machine. The room where the machine lived had the windows blown out, so it had some dried on mud/dirt. Not bad at all in my opinion. She did turn the machine on and it powered up and she ran a few stitches and sent the video. I called and sent pictures to Dave Jones---he said "buy it". so I did. I had Dave pick it up, clean it up, run diagnostics, and deliver to me---it was well worth every penny that he charged to do that as I didn't have to make arrangements for renting a truck/trailer or shipping, worry about clean up, take time to go get the machine, etc. I was willing to take a chance. The only thing that is "iffy" are the encoders----I will use the machine until they "croak", and then I'll have those replaced. I'm only going to run the SR when I absolutely have to. By having the ULT without SR, I was pretty much able to control my stitches. I am thrilled to have found a machine that I could afford, my Ult is in a new home, and I'm sure this will be the last machine I ever own(unless I would ever be lucky enough to win one in a giveaway). I am hoping and praying that this decision will prove to be the right one for me, as anything above of about $1000 in cost and to pay in cash, makes me shake in my boots. But, I know APQS stands behind their machines, even though I am no longer the original owner, plus, I'm familiar with the machine. I believe that prayer helped, and I "just happened" to be on the computer at the right time! So that's it---my "new(er) to me machine. Now, to REALLY start playing!!!!
  7. Thanks everyone for your responses. I, indeed, have found a new(er) to me machine.
  8. This machine has SOLD. The original poster tried to edit listing, but couldn't get "edit" to work.
  9. As I thought, answers are all over the board---maybe I just need to work with the machine a little more to determine if I REALLY need the SR. The ONLY decision I've made is whether I upgrade my ULT or go with a new(er) machine, it will be my last time to upgrade and I will die having fun quilting so maybe it doesn't much matter if I upgrade the ULT or go new(er) in the long run.
  10. I have an ULT 1 w/o SR. I have toyed with either upgrading to a different machine(ISO ad on forum now), or adding SR. I LOVE my machine, have the table how I want it, and I have received some great advice from Zeke and Jim. Are there those of you who have SR but rarely or never use it on free motion, ruler work, or pantos? I only quilt for myself and charity and am basically a beginner. I do well without a SR so that's the question. I've been told, you can live without it and it is a "pricey" add on. Others have said it is worth it and probably would be most cost effective in the long run than trying to find another machine. I know that SR would make it easier for ruler work, etc, but is it absolutely necessary? I took a class from Dusty Farrell and asked him and he said he rarely ever uses the SR---even for ruler work. Adding IS(Nolting will add it) would "cure" most of my issues with the ULT(needle down option). I also like the way it will start when I move and stop when I stop and has a true basting stitch. What about the rest of you out there? Do you use your SR a lot or only sometimes? If so, when do you find you use it the most? Thanks in advance of any advice and suggestions. Barbara
  11. Bump---anybody know of anyone who has a system within driving distance of Colorado Springs?
  12. Still looking for an older Lucey, Freedom or Millennium(in that order). Might consider un-stitch regulated Lucey or Freedom if price is right. Have 5-6K to spend for complete system. If you are upgrading, please let me know. Would prefer NOT to go outside a 12 hr. radius from Colorado Springs, CO
  13. Thanks, Charlene for the offer. You are right, this is more than what I can or want to spend. And even though an Intelliquilter might be great to have, it would prove to be one extra thing that I would have to sell, and my ULT might be hard enough to sell with everybody(including me) thinking they need to have a SR.
