  5. Just received my new Scoop foot! Can I say how cool it is that APQS engineers keep making our machines better and better? This new foot is the bomb; glides right over wavey quilt edges, stray threads, "creatively pieced" blocks with pleats , etc. Love, love, my new foot; got one for each machine, Millie and Lucey. Check out the new foot on the APQS online store. New shoes for my babies for the New Year!
  6. Ultimate II Longarm quilting Machine Great workhorse of a machine! Brand new motor, and newly cleaned and serviced. Works perfectly! Looking to upgrade, but I need to sell my machine first. It has been a wonderful machine, and a dream to quilt with. Table breaks down into two 5' sections. New Sheri Butler foot added to do ruler work. Great machine for just starting out! Purchaser is responsible for shipping/pickup. Thanks for looking! Located in California. Features: - 10' Lenni Stowaway table - 10 L bobbins - Hartley base extender - Straight ruler - Pantograph cover - Handles in front and back - Under handle light - 2 Pantographs - Sidewinder bobbin winder - Oiler - Instruction manual and DVD Asking $2500
  7. I bought this machine new in 2003, it comes with a 14 ft table, has stitch regulator, automatic advance, zipper leaders, Hartley attachments, and more. I am in Somerset, Wisconsin. Would like $10,500 for everything.
  8. I am moving to a smaller home so I must sell my APQS Discovery Quilting machine. It is a great working, smaller longarm (same body as UII 20" throat) not a midarm. It includes machine, wood and metal table, supplies, patterns, batting, thread, and Circle Lord system with templates aND full sized queen boards. I would like $3,900 or BO for everything. I ran a Quilting business for a short time so it has all kinds of supplies to start a business or just your own quilting. There are about $2,000 in Circle Lord supplies alone. The Discovery is similar to the Lenni or Liberty by APQS but no Stitch regulator. I have done very well with out one. It easily handles different types of threads and still have beautiful stitches. It has all the other gizmos like needle up down, one stitch, laser light, and it is very light weight (37 lbs?). Being so light, it makes free motion quilting a breeze. I will provide a couple of hours in lessons for free and help set up if bought within 60 miles. I can also provide additional lessons if needed at an additional cost. I live in South Portland Maine about 45 minutes north of Portsmouth NH. It needs to be picked up. Give me an email or text me 207.766.6800 I have it listed under craigslist maine also.
  9. APQS Millennium – 14’ table – many extras – $10,500. Very light personal use. Purchased new in 2002 and completed about 20 quilts. The machine was in storage from 2004 to 2015. Finished a backlog of 20 quilts in the last year. Just moved & now we are looking to move again. I don't know if we'll have room for the machine. This machine works perfectly. § Power Roller Advance § Multi positional handles § Height adjustable table § Horizontal and vertical directional locks § Stitch regulator – set the stitch length and it makes uniform stitches no matter how fast or how slow you go § Synchronous belt drive system § Self-lubricating bushings § LED lighting § Simple disc thread tensioner § Laser stylus for pantographs § 26” throat size § Bobbin winder EXTRAS – most never used § Hartley Fence § Hartley base expander § Hartley fence stencil kits § Hartley perfect circle maker § Multiple rules (unused) including paisley, straight edge, scallop & waves § Batting rack § Dozens of spools of Marilyn Badger art thread § Dozens of paper pantographs & some Mylar pantographs § Miscellaneous other notions to make this a complete and ready to use unit The value of this package is over $17,000 but it’s priced at $10,500. It is set up in southern Oregon so you can try it out. We can help disassemble and pack for you or your transporter. We have a decent guest room for overnight stay for buyer. Possible transportation to CA or northern OR. Happy to answer questions. Carol

  11. I am a new quilter who is looking for a gently used Mille or Freddie for non-commercial use. I would like something that I can upgrade at a later date. I am located around Tampa, FL but would be willing to take a field trip and drive to pick up if I can find the right machine at the right price! Thanks
  12. Life has led me to a new adventure that I am so excited about and feel so blessed, but now my very gently used 2014 Lucey needs a new home. She is an amazing lady on a 10 foot table. Table Length: 10 Stitch Regulator Automatic Needle Positioner Single Stitch Laser Light Wrights Deluxe Bobbin Winder Accessories Bliss Option (new table) Her price is $10000.00 I have all of her boxes for shipping. Including the long boxes for the rails. I am including all of the pantos (about 20+). I have only quilted 9 quilts on this machine and it is in perfect condition. I can also throw in some threads and any prewounds that I have. I have several templates also. Baptist fan, rulers, etc. I will throw in anything that fits in the boxes. LOL. The Machine is located in the Portland Oregon area.
  13. SOLD. SORRY. I have a chance to upgrade to a machine with a computer system, which I want to do, but I need to sell my current Millie first. 2009 APQS Millennium on a 12' BLISS table. Quilt regulation. Channel Locks. Automatic Fabric Advance. Hydraulic LIFT. Overhead light bar system. Thread Cutter. Laser Stylus. Turbo Bobbin Winder. It is everything you could want except a computer guided system! Used for less than 50 lap type size quilts and a few queen/king quilts. NOT used in a store as a demo or rental or daily constant professional use. Just completely checked over. He says she is good to go head to toe. You will get thousands of hours of happy quilting for half the price of a new millie that has all these options like the extra $1000 for fabric advance, extra $1000 for Bliss and extra $1000 for hydraulic lift. PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT JUST IN TIME. IN MISSOURI BUT I COULD DELIVER OR MEET YOU. if you can't disassemble, pick up and take with you, we can work something out with someone I know. He delivers and sets up these things all over the country and is really helpful. You can email me at for faster response. $12,299 OBO. Thanks - Melody

I am moving and closing up shop – must sell my longarm and all accessories/equipment is included. The “Millennium Falcon” (named due her place in what was the garage before I turned it into my sewing studio) was purchased new in 2007. She lives in a smoke free home and has only seen 10 to 20 quilts per year – small home based business. I bought it mainly for personal use and purchased all the bells and whistles available. I am the only one to sew on this machine and treated her with much love and care; the business was only to subsidize my obsession. The Millennium comes with the 14’ table with panto table and laser stylus with upper and lower mounts, and the hydraulic lift system to change the height at the touch of a button. It has the APQS Stich Regulator, horizontal/vertical locks, motorized fabric feeder, bobbin thread cutter, and bright LED lights with additional black light for specialty threads/chalk. Fully functional handles front and back – for free form/custom quilting (front) and pantograph or specialty quilting (back).

  24. Over the last year, these are the things I've learned ... I cannot sneeze and stipple at the same time. Backing loaded right side up does not look near as good on the back of a quilt as a backing loaded wrong side up. If you wear long sleeves, make sure your seam ripper or scissors are close to the head of the machine … just in case you sew your sleeve to the quilt while getting in those odd positions holding a ruler. A bug landing in spikey grey hair while FMQ can cause a 14” unwanted stitched line across a quilt that does not necessarily match the stitching pattern. Eyeballing a straight line does not mean the stitched line will be straight – use your channel locks. Changing a needle because you are having stitching and tension problems and putting the needle in backwards will not correct the stitching problems. Loading a quilt backing, batting and top on TOP of the leveler bar (instead of underneath it) will create stitching problems and tucks in your backing. QuiltPath does what you tell it to … not what you intend for it to do. When a customer says, “oh, just do what you want”, that’s not always what they mean. When a more experienced quilter tells you, “practice, practice, practice”… that IS what they mean! I have the best machine on the market today. APQS sales and service can’t be beat! This “family” on the forum is the greatest teacher I’ve found … no matter what question I have, someone is always ready with an answer. I learn so much reading your posts and seeing your pics. THANK YOU! I’m proud to be an APQS owner!
