  1. are the feet on the 2018 Millie changeable? I was thinking of getting the open toe foot but I wasn’t sure if the foot was changeable. I currently have the ruler foot and it seems to attach with screws which would need an Allen wrench to remove Leah Davis
  2. I have had my Millie a little over a year. There are certain features that I wish it had: 1. A basting stitch - instead of me having to manually control basting stitch length 2. A tie off stitch 3. Independently movable front handles : so that I could move one handle out of the way when doing ruler work 4. I wish the front backing bar was situated vertically below the top bar. Since I am only 5' 4" this would help me be 4-6 inches closer so that it was easier to do ruler work in more of the stitching field. I have to have my machine on casters since my space is limited.
  3. I appreciate the info. The arm never moved. However, when I take the back cover off I do not see any white connectors - unless I first have to disconnect the large multi-color flat cable.
  4. I have a problem with my thread cutter. I have attempted to use it in the past and it made a noise but did not actually cut the thread. I attempted to use it today and now Millie is stuck in thread cutter mode. It keeps clicking and thread cutter button is lit but nothing is happening. I turned the power off and back on but it is still just clicking. I tried pressing the thread cutter button on the back and the front but the light will not turn off and the machine keeps making that noise. I tried calling APQS service but they are closed until Monday. I am so disappointed because I
  5. I want to quilt a border pantograph that has a design turning the corner. How do I plan this out to be sure the corner design and border design met properly? Pointing me to instructions or a video would be great. Also since my quilt is too long to turn on my table, what should be the order of quilting? Should I: 1. Quilt the top border 2. Stabilize quilt - sides, side border seams, center, while rolling to bottom 3. Quilt bottom border 4 roll back to top, quilt side borders (right/left) while rolling to bottom 5. Quilt center of quilt The quil
  6. I have a 2018 Millie. I can’t get the horizontal channel lock to engage. The vertical lock works fine. The lights on the front panel come on when I press to engage the channel lock but no locking takes place. What do I need to do? Leah Davis
  7. My bobbin winder is very difficult to activate. I have to push so hard on the switch that I sometimes move the winder and frequently lose hold of the thread tail. Any suggestions?
  8. I buy online from South Star supply. Dafa Rotary cutter blade, 45mm. 10 blades for $19.95. I have been buying from them for years.
  9. Why are you getting rid of it? I am buying a Millie and was thinking of getting this - even though it is expensive. Can you give me your Pro's and Con's concerning the light bar?
  10. So which discount is better? A discount on a certified used machine from APQS or the Roadshow discounts? I am currently signed up for a February roadshow but there is a used 2016 Millenium available now.
