  3. 2005 APQS Millenium quilt machine for sale. This was my Mother's machine. She ran a quilting business in Manitoba and was an APQS dealer so it was always well maintained. I don't know a lot about it, but I know it has the additional leg risers (electric). She had sent the head in for some updates a few years ago. I have attached several pictures of the machine itself. I have all of the original paperwork in a binder, many boxes of patterns, maintenance videos, her course binders, etc. I also have her fabric and binding roller (3 level roller system) about 6 feet wide (not pictured.). The machine is located in Manitoba, but I am willing to deliver to Prairie Provinces or to Northern Prairie States (ND, SD, MN etc). We are asking $9000 USD.

  5. I have for sale a gently used 2003 APQS Millennium (26-inch throat) industrial long arm machine on a 12-foot table. I added the computer program system Quilt Path 3 years ago at a cost of $9,500 USD. Quilt Path is a very versatile program and comes with free upgrades and updates FOR LIFE to whoever owns it, even if you are a second owner of the software. It is great for blocks of any shape, borders, whole cloth quilts and pantographs plus many more options. There are tons of great support people for beginners for both the Millennium and the Quilt Path. The machine comes with a built-in stitch length regulator, channel locks, automatic thread cutter, manual, and much more. I have a motorized Quilt advance system worth every penny of the $1,000 USD I paid for it. I have taken good care of her and have never had any issues with it. The tension is easy to set, and I primarily use Glide thread and Glide magnetic bobbins. I have upgraded to the Bliss Rail system and table about 4 years ago ($3,000 USD) and all new M&M wheels and now it is as smooth as butter for great Free motion quilting. I have also upgraded the older Fluorescent light to a LED light with both white and black light which opened a wider visibility area tremendously. I also upgraded the original hopping foot to a removable ruler foot so if you are interested in acquiring new/different feet you can order them from APQS or a dealer that is close to you. The ruler base is included. (worth 140 USD new). There are several different feet you can choose from. I replaced the canvas leaders this last spring (2018) so they are nice and fresh. I have a leader grip style mounting system called Mondo clips. They are much more flexible and user friendly than the original Leader grips. They are easily removable if you have a project that you just need to quickly pin on. I have some rulers and Quilt Path Digital Designs if you would like to start off your library of designs other that the stock designs Quilt Path comes with. I will throw in a couple cones of thread to get you started. To buy brand new at today's prices would be about $30,000 USD. I have added a comparison chart below with the exchange rate from the APQS website. An APQS dealer has priced my machine at $20,000 CAD or $15,300 USD. I am open negotiationg offers if you are interested. Please email me Terry Forlin at with any questions you may have. I live in Fruitvale BC and you can come pick up or we can arrange for shipping which will be extra. Just for comparison, what a NEW machine and software with upgrades would be in US dollars and Canadian dollars . *These prices are before taxes and/or brokerage fees. Exchange rate: USD to CAD for the date of July 26, 2018, 1.30715 Millennium: $18,900.00 USD X 1.30715 = $24,705.16 CANADIAN Bliss System: 1,000.00 USD X 1.30715 = 1,306.82 CANADIAN Quilt Path Program: 9,500.00 USD X 1.30715 = 12,415.30 CANADIAN Motorized Quilt Advance: 1,350.00 USD X 1.30715 = 1,764.05 CANADIAN TOTALS NEW PACKAGE: $29,850.00 USD X 1.30715 = $40,191.33 CANADIAN

  9. 2017 Millie with Quiltpath. Have been using prewound bobbins exclusively, mostly Magna Glide without any issues. Had never tried my Turbo winder. Got a client quilt where she wanted a variegated thread. I had a good one with Affinity by Fil-Tec. Then she decided to ask for matching thread in the bobbin. Well, Fil-Tec doesn't offer prewounds in that line that I can find. So I dug out my second bobbin case, and finally figured out how to use the Turbowinder. The bobbins looked like they wound properly. I used the aluminum ones and the same Affinity thread. Set up my machine to quilt. As usual, I tested the tensions on a sample. Ugh! Bobbin tension was bad. so started the routine to adjust it. Tightening the top only made it fractionally better, so I tried the bobbin case adjustments. Went a bit far and tightened it too much, but fixed that fast. Tightened the top several times until on the sample it looked ok. Started the panto. First pattern looked fine, so I continued. Shouldn't have. The rest of the row had wonky back tension and I'm going to have to rip it all out. The only different factor seems to be the aluminum bobbin. I don't have a TOWA gauge, but the "hold up" test was ok. Help! Pamela Sonoran Sky Quilting

  15. Near the end of a project. The pattern started to degrade. Turned everything off and tried on another spot. Still messed up. Finally my head wouldn't come all the way forward, so I started investigating, The back clamp lost a screw. It wobbles now and I suspect this is the problem. Millennium 2017, Bliss track, Quilt Path. Question, do I need to remove the head t fix this I suspect? And should I check for anything else? Pamela G. Tucson, AZ

  21. I am bringing home my first ever long arm machine on Tuesday, a 2013 dealer demo blissed Millenium on a 12' table. I am SO EXCITED! My APQS dealer is 2 hours away from me and I want to be able to jump in right away as soon as she's set up in my studio. What goodies should I buy while I'm in the shop? I know I want to learn to do ruler work, so I'll need the extended base. I do intricate appliqué on my own quilts and would like to be able to ditch around the appliqué with accuracy. Are the micro drive handles the best way to do that, or should I try one of the acrylic needle guide tools (sold by long arm ruler mfgs) instead? What thread should I start with? Any other gadgets or gizmos that would be helpful? Also, if I put her on casters, can I move her on carpet? I just want to give myself an extra couple feet behind the machine for pantos and be able to push her back to the wall when I'm working from the front or using my other machines. i'm hoping to add IQ or Quiltpath in the future, but first I want to get used to the machine, loading quilts, etc. Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated.

  22. I'm planning to start a longarm quilting business in the next few months. Found a great dealer who sells both APQS and Intelliquilter. I'm planning to invest in Intelliquilter so I can jump right in with computerized E2E without the learning curve (as this is my first, and hopefully last longarm purchase!) and I know that from a business standpoint, larger frames and wider throats are best for computerized quilting because they allow you to quilt a larger area with each advance of the quilt. However, I know that I want to learn to quilt freehand as well, if only for myself, and it seems like the longarm quilters whose work I most admire are using smaller machine heads. When I demo'd the 26" Millenium and the 20" Lenni, I felt like I had much better control and better hand guided results with the smaller machine when I was quilting swirls, teardrops, pebbles, etc. I know I can take the 5 lb. thread cutter off the Millie and that will help, but I'm wondering whether the Millenium is too big and unwieldy to be an ideal hand guided machine. Or, will I develop that control over time through practice? Basically, my question is whether experienced quilters find the Millenium to be "too big" for hand guided or free-style quilting. I'm tall and I have long arms, so reach isn't an issue -- just noticed a big difference in my demo quilting on the two machines. On Lenni, I can already do a decent meander, but on Millie I couldn't keep those curves consistent. Both machines I demo'd had Bliss Track systems. Any suggestions or feedback greatly appreciated. Thanks! Rebecca Grace
  23. Due to a recent divorce and no room or storage for my APQS Millennium Machine, I need to sell ASAP. My machine was purchased new in 2006 and has maybe only had 20 quilts made on the machine. It also has the CompuQuilter attachment. The machine can be used free-style or you can use the Compu Quilter for perfectly executed patterns. Purchased new for $32,000. Will sell for $10,000 OBO. Machine is located in NW Iowa. Please contact me at Must sell immediately.
