  1. Thank you for your kind words. I have tons of interest but nobody that lives in a good radius of my home. I have a feeling Lucey will be traveling south with us and I will have no problem down there selling her as there is a great APQS dealer in Lexington so there are many that want it. Most of my inquires are from that area or out west. Yes Karen Miller. Her summer home is about an hour from me. She is amazing and so kind. If you ever get a chance attend one of her classes. You won’t be sorry!!
  2. We are not at all unhappy with the APQS. When we started looking for a long arm we were sold on the APQS right from the beginning. Then through our research we met a dealer of the Innova and learned about them. Innova has two features we really liked. One the lightening stitch and the second is the table and the way you can flip it up and see the back of your quilt. BUT for those two features you pay a premium. The lightening stitch is a $4000 ad on and the Innova 22 Price is higher to start than the Lucey. It was then that we decided to stick with our first decision of the Lucey. The stitch regulator on her is amazing (with no added cost) and we really liked the bliss table. A few months after buying Lucey we were invited to a Jamie Waller seminar by the Innova dealer we met before buying Lucey. After the class she offered us an amazing deal on an Innova and we decided if we sold Lucey maybe we’d try the Innova. My husband has always been a woodworker but our winters are brutal so he isn’t able to work in his shop as much as he’d like and that is why he wanted to give long arming a go. Now that we will be moving south to warmer climate he will be able to do woodworking year round. He’d still like to continue to learn to long arm but he had to make the choice. Myself...I have had the privilege to take classes from Karen Miller and my free motion quilting on my Bernina keeps me very happy and I don’t need to long arm. i hope this clears this matter up but if not feel free to question any of your thoughts. We have nothing to hid or are we trying to condridict anything we are saying. Situations in our lives can change in a minute. And we have to change our minds about things we think we want one day to the next. Ours being to move closer to our grandchildren in Georgia and leaving the snow and cold of New York State. It’s all about priorities. Thanks for your interest in our Lucey. Hopefully you will find the right machine for you.
  3. The bobbin is the small size that was recommended to me by my dealer. She says you have much less trouble with the tension. And she is right!! The frame is 12 ft...standard table with the bliss system. Very very little use. Like new. All accessories that come with are the original ones that came when we bought her. You can see the list on the APQS website. We do have leader grips and the bobbin winder that’s negotiable.
  4. Yes it is. Last time used was Halloween 2017. Perfect condition and just waiting for a new home.
  5. Yes still available as of today 4/27/18. We are in Rochester, NY
  6. I'm in Rochester...are you anywhere near? I am trying to sell my APQS Lucey so I can buy this exact machine.
  7. We are selling for two reasons. We are moving down south and really don't want to transport. Nor do we know if we will find a home with a place to set it up. The other reason is we don't enjoy doing long arm quilting as much as we thought we would. I was never overly interested but my husband was. He did 4 lap quilts for me and did a nice job on them but it is also a woodworker and just doesn't have time to do both. Sorry I have no idea what the cost would be to ship to CA.
