  1. I watched a video which showed the changes to the updated Millie and can't seem to find the video again. What I'm interested in is the depth of the table, I think he said there were some changes to the table as well. Does anyone know what the measurement is from the very front of the table to the very back of the table is?
  2. WOW! Gorgeous quilting! Great job and choice of colors! I think I would name it "Fire Fly"!
  3. I don't have a Millie, but almost replaced my machine (a different brand) a couple of years ago. I totally agree with you about the fully adjustable front handles. The handles going horizontally across the front of the machine block the view of the quilt when quilting from front to back. It's the same with the light bar on the machine I own now. I can adjust the height of the table as much as I want; it's still in the way. The handles on the Bernina Q24, A-1 or the Innova are perfect examples of getting the handles out of the way. If the machine still beeps in regulated mode, there should be a way to turn it off for those who don't like the beeping. Other than that, I was totally impressed with the Millie - just couldn't justify buying a new machine when mine works fine. With the new changes, such as moving the dead bar back on the frame, the new lighting, and the changes to the channel locks, I think it's an awesome machine. I love that there isn't a separate tablet. And of course, that it's made in the US and has a lifetime warranty. Oh, and have your machines at more shows! I’m going to Quilt Odyssey in Hershey at the end of the month and the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in September and wish you were represented there! Just a few suggestions from an *almost* Millie owner!
  4. Thank you Gail. Thanks for the circumference of the handles. The handles at the handle mount don't move up and down, that's the measurement I was interested in because that's always going to stay in the same spot.
  5. Hi, I'm looking to find out the measurement from the bottom of the handles to the top of the quilt when loaded. And also how thick are the handles? It's kind of an odd question, but I want to compare it to the machine I have now. Thanks for your help! Vicki
  6. Huge congratulations! I wen to the show on Wednesday and the competition was fierce! So many amazingly quilted quilts!

  12. Beautiful! Love the texture of the hairpins!
  13. Just curious - was the tension better after you adjusted the guide or was it better after your rep came out? If better after the rep, what did the rep to to make it better?
  14. Beautiful quilt and quilting! Love how you tucked the feathers into the points!
