  1. To Dianne 31331 and 4fore My dealing with Dave was my biggest mistake Trusting my friend was the second biggest She vouched for Dave and Deloa...she continues to help him schedule his dealings in New England....- I should have asked him to take Deloa with him to his next stop so that I could drive to the next town to get to my bank --pay the $30 to have the cashiers check made into 2 checks as I had asked my husband to get originally- I am chalking it up to long late working shift the night before, and I should have never paid him in full. I really believe he would have responded to not getting paid till it was completed. He did teach me one big lesson TRUST NO ONE specially if his name is Dave Jones! I also believe he took the part off of the machine he sold to me to give to someone else- perhaps he thought he'd get another lift and he would be back to fix my machine quickly what ever he did he never tuned the machine before delivery, he could not have gone over it with a fine tooth comb to make sure it was tip top because it was not, they Dave adn DeLoa did not deliver what they both promised. I am not wealthy, this was a massive stretch to pay off my loan from my 401K I still have no lift- no one has come to tune it- The "Deloas Ladies" group that got superior care and service never stopped here. His family helps him get away with this. and that is very sad. I am trying to figure out how to move this -I am scared to take it apart- but I have to sell the home my machine is in now and down size.
  2. I started this topic not the spew at Jessica but the feeling that I had made a massive mistake in judgement in trusting someone I thought to be decent and their excitement of dealing with someone who sold used Millie's I am not rich- I could not afford a new machine- I work tremendous hours in Primary health care so going to a place and renting a space using a Mille was not easy. I am grateful to Jessica- she has offered to help.I do not want to drag someone to court I really cannot take the time off from my job to go to court my husband was downsized from his job so I have to work---my hope was to just get the machine to the state it was supposed to be delivered in- I just want a working table lift and working machine( not partially working machine). judi ps to update: I've been advised to work around-not expect it would be made correct. In fact I've tried that the table shakes if you put it up on bed risers.It is extreemly unstable. AND THAT SUGGESTION is like asking someone to buy a used car and stick their foot out the door to stop it. not trying to be overly sarcastic.but really I've been advised to just get over it or purchase a lift from APQS-again I am working hard not making ends meet and I do not have extra monies to spend twice for the lift. I can and probably will have an APQS person come and service the machine my letter to Dave Jone longarmdoctor@gmail.com has so far gone unanswered.
  3. she continues to help him schedule tune ups gets free tune ups for her machine and has not helped in my case- so It is hard to not be frustrated with her as well. she talked so glowingly about both of your parents, the person I look classes from whose studio rental times did not coincide with my time off.....also talked highly of your Dad and still gets her machines service by him. Not sure why he thought I was an easy mark. not sure why he chose to do this to me, but here I am still waiting. I am not planning to take any classes at MQX East- I do not have a tuned up machine I have a broken /missing table lift it is hard to drive see the beautiful machines and quilts knowing I cannot use my machine in the condition it is in so I am not sure I am going to drive up. I did drive last year had hoped to speak to your Dad to resolve this but that never happened I look forward to any help in getting this resolved. judi
  4. I would hope that people do not drag Jessica into this she is not either her mother or her father. I do believe that I met her just prior to the delivery of my machine in Manchester NH, but again she is not Dave or DeLeoa and I never asked for her to be brought into this. judi there is a woman who is far more central to the mess it is not jessica it is someone I had stupidly trusted, she introduced me to Dave and she still schedules the tuneup/repairs that he does in massachusetts.....she was a friend friends like that are a massive problem. Jessica I am so sorry, it was not my intent to cause you harm.
  5. I am not sure but I think that I have met Jessica, in NewHampshire the year I bought my machine. Dave brought Deloa to my house when he delivered my machine; SHE IS THE ONE WHO FOUND THE PROBLEMS- She Pointed them out to me. She Promised it [my machine]would be fixed! so please understand that I am frustrated. I've been told she is wonderful and she might be but in this instance I can now spend >10,000 to fix what is broken and was not delivered to me. And I am not rich, I cannot retire, I do not have $10,000 to throw out the window thanks to my experience with Dave and DeLoa. Please believe me I have a few of DeLoa's books and many of the rulers that she and her son sell. I just feel that I was run over "F'd" and I truly came out of it on the wrong end....... I keep Hope that Deloa is the person people say she is and that Dave will just live up to the contract nothing more-- I enter the sweepstakes every year hoping I can win a working machine ---without the problems I have with my machine... I want to be done with Dave and the mess I got into thanks to a "friends' recommendation. So far he will not reimburse me or fix my machine and DeLoa for all of her wonderfull-ness has done nothing to help me And of course I did not win a machine. So I am frustrated by people telling me how wonderfull she is...in this case I took her at her word too....so far that was as worthless as Dave's promises. judi
  6. Jessica I am so sorry that you have gotten pulled in this drama But as a person your mother promised would be taken care of, and yet still was screwed by your father.This is very hard.She is the one who told me the horizontal and vertical locks were broken, and that it was not set up correctly .She is the one who muttered that he must not have done anything to make sure it was in sales ready condition....I believed that she would honor her word and make sure this was fixed. I feel violated, he prayed on my trust of a woman here in Massachusetts who sets up his schedule when he drops in to service. She is the person who introduced me to him. I thought I could trust her opinion. I know now that I should not have. I am not wealthy, I cannot afford to pay twice for what was not delivered. judi
  7. Cagey, thank you for all of the ideas. Yes indeed the memory of working with Dave and Deloa is quite bitter. I will check to see if indeed he does have a license to conduct business in this state- I am in Massachusetts . judi
  8. did he bring his wife with him??? they were a wonderful tag team- she showed me what was not right told me he would fix it, ... I am frustrated that I paid extra for things and I can indeed pay again....to APQS I may go the route of sending this machine to apqs certainly I'd love to see the Jones family stand by their work, and their promises SO FAR they have not. judi
  9. I purchased a used Millie from Dave Jones I was put in contact with him by someone I never suspected would do this to me.... but I was wrong My husband got 1 certified check not 2 ....I cannot explain why he did.I do not live close to the bank. Dave delivered a used Millie to me with a table that was to be able to be raised/lowered..... I had up graded to bliss( at full price .... was never told that all the things included included with this machine would be useless once the bliss was installed) I got the whole snow job DeLoa stated things were not working right and that was not including the height of the table I have 35inch inseam on my pants...without the ability to raise the table as it was delivered it is set for someone with a 25-27 inch inseam DAVE NEVER CAME BACK I am so heart broken that I was taken judi
