  1. Your tension looks pretty good, that rippling just seems to be from where the stitch is pulling the fabric down. The best way to tell if your tension is good is on points and curves. Straight lines don't give you a good representation of tension issues. In the points and curves you will see if tension is off by thread being pulled up or down and poking through, or the thread laying flat either top or bottom. Hope that makes sense.
  2. It will work on a Lenni with Bliss, you would need a new switch cable for Lenni, as the Millie cable is different.
  3. This awesome machine and IQ are still available! Great way to get the best of both worlds, top of the line quilting machine AND computerization, at a discounted price and no tax!!
  4. Bumping this up for Jolene. She is willing to sell items separately, but IQ will not go until machine is sold.

    Comparing APQS Millie with Handi Quilter Infinity

    Lisa, have you purchased a machine? Here is a customer of mine that is selling her 2012 Millie with Intelliquilter. The machine is in great condition, she is only selling to upgrade to the larger 30" machine. Here is the link.

    New to me Freedom

    Did you turn the light on with the black switch on the left of the machine just above the front handles? If it is turned on, and the bulb is good, it is possible that the starter for the flourescent light has gone bad. Send service an email with the serial number and they can tell you the manufacturing date. My papers only go back to 2003. The square lights on the top are diagnostic lights. No stitch regulator on this machine. You can increase the motor speed by that dial on the top right of the machine, right before the "F" in Freedom Higher number will make the needle go faster. You still need to regulate how fast you move the machine to get the stitch length you want. You have the thread cutter, so the expanded base with threadcutter will fit this machine so you can do rulerwork. Hope this helps.
  7. Come on people, this is a good price on a very gently used Millie!!
  8. Barb Hartman, from looking at her photos, I can see that she has the split shaft hopping foot, so yes, it can take the different feet. In fact the photo shows the machine with the open toe ruler foot. Hope this helps.

    APQS Light Bar for Sale

    It would be helpful to know what length table the light bar is for.
  10. Millie is in her new home!
  11. I would recommend you try the Lucey. She is the same size as Millie, only lighter in weight. She moves like a dream for free motion quilting. Since you plan to get the IQ, you will have channel locks within the IQ system, so no real need to go up to Millie for those. I would highly recommend trying Lucey and I would upgrade to the Deluxe table ( Millies table) and get the fabric advance.
  12. No Im sorry it doesn't. I got it just before Quilt Glide came out. It can be added to this machine, but I am not sure what the retrofit cost is. I can check if you are interested.
