  1. Hi Allison, Thank you for the note. I made this table a few months ago. Found the table at a thrift store, spray painted it black, topped it with plywood, quilt batting then fabric. Found some instruction on Youtube. Do it! Jamie Bennett Quilts & Clay Bellevue, Idaho
  2. Hi Ines, Thank you for the note. The shed is 14' wide and 28' long plus a 4' porch. The floor is insulated underneath the plywood. The top of floor is just painted. The end walls are made with pallet wood. We picked up the pallets for free, removed the top wood slats, I whitewashed them with a mixture of 1/2 white paint, 1/2 water. I painted 2 coats of whitewashed then nailed them to the wall. Really easy and a beautiful look. I hope you get one. It's so worth it. Thanks again, Jamie Bennett Quilts & Clay Bellevue, Idaho
  3. Hi Gable, Thanks for the note. The shed is 14' wide by 28' long plus a 4' porch. A local shed business built it. It is a happy place. Check your local shed companies. Have a great day, Jamie Bennett Quilts & Clay Bellevue, Idaho
  4. I have a 12ft table with bliss for sale if interested.
  5. Hello all, I relocated to Idaho and am in the process of building a home. I could not wait until a house was built to start quilting so I had a shed built. We finished the inside and this is now my very happy place. Jamie Bennett Quilts & Clay
  6. Congratulations. I just ordered one too. Hoping to sell my 12ft bliss table before mine arrives.

  8. Hello all, My needle continuously break. Millennium, usually in stitch regulator mode. Seems like I am moving the machine head faster than the needle moves and the needle breaks. I rarely get through a quilt without 2-3 needs breaking, Sometimes more. Any troubleshooting guidance is appreciated. So frustrating to operate this way. Thank you, Jamie Bennett
  9. Hello all, I'm looking for a video or instructions on how to sew a leader casing (from grip rods) on the longarm machine. Any guidance is greatly appreciated. Jamie Bennett

  11. Well Nigel, you are my hero today. It was actually the top pick up roller that was binding the ruler base. I followed your instructions and raised up the top pick up and the leveler bar both (with a quilt on it) and it's seems to have made a huge improvement. I need to quilt from edge to edge and front to back with a ruler to be confident but so far its smooth. The stitches look nicer too. Was this procedure in the manual somewhere that I missed? I've been trying to fix this issue for two years now with a lot of frustration. I can't believe it was that simple. Thank you so much. I greatly appreciate this support. Jamie
  12. Hello all, When the APQS ruler base is on , the sewing machine drags in certain places no matter where the machine head is on the table. I have taken the entire table/system apart twice and re-set it up and the dragging continues. I'm thinking of looking for a smaller ruler base. Please advise. Thank you, Jamie Bennett
  13. Hello all, When in stitch regulator mode the stitch length does not increase in size. The stitches are always small. When I select the stitch length increase button, they never change is size. Please advise. Thank you, Jamie Bennett
  14. Delle, Did you get a solution to this stitch length problem with stitch regulator? I have the same problem. Stitch length is at the lowest setting of 7 and my stitches are very small. I've just not used the stitch regulator because of this problem but would like to have a solution. Please advise. Thank you, Jamie Bennett
  15. Did you find a solution for the website calculator? I'm looking for the same. Would you share? Have you have an "App" for your phone for calculating quilting? Thank you
  16. So do I. I love all your quilts, patterns and quilting
  17. Thank you both. Why wouldn't APQS have roller clamps? I'll check Jamie's site.
  18. Hello all, I have an issue with the canvas ends tangling when rolling up the fabric. I have a pick up advance system. What do you use to keep the canvas rolling evenly on the rollers? Thank you kindly, Jamie Bennett
  19. Hi all, Please provide some guidance for my issue. Issue: Quilt backing will not tighten evenly on the left side of the 12 foot frame. This issue is consistent with all my backings. It was gradual at first and now is increasing. So when the right side of the backing is tight, the left side is loose and hangs down. I've attached a photo but it hard to represent the issue. What I've done far: Squared the backing fabric before loading Pinned the center of backing and matched to center of canvas before pinning Read instructions on how to load quilt Thank you kindly, Jamie Bennett
