  1. Hello Everyone! I have had my Lenni since August 2015, but due to a number of issues, was not really able to do much but set up my machine, and test to see if it worked. Then it sat... sadly, for almost a year. Recently, I was able to attend a beginner class (I'd already had a 'renter's class', but that was over a year ago) with the lady who sold me my Lenni (thanks Tracey Russel of Whirls 'n Swirls Quilting in Oshawa, ON Canada). I had been so afraid to do something detrimental to my machine that I wasn't confident to try... Tracey's class gave me the confidence to give myself permission
  2. Yesterday I drove three and a half hours from Chicago to Dubuque to attend a road show and check out the APQS machines. What a great experience that was! They answered questions I hadn't even thought of asking! We had a great time--just me and about 8 women--and got to play on all five of the APQS machines. I went pretty sure I was not going to buy because my local quilt shop had made me a great offer on one of the long arms they carry. After about 5 minutes playing on one machine, I was sure I was NOT buying the machine from my LQS, and had to have an APQS. By the time I quit playing, I
  3. Bad hair day, braces showing in my smile and wearing old yoga pants...so not a great picture of me, but look what came to my house today. YESSSSSSSSS! Now to start carefully opening boxes and taking inventory. Busy weekend ahead, LOL! Sherry
  4. Hi Everyone! Not sure if this is where I should be posting (LMK if I should post elsewhere). After looking at a VERY old Ultimate machine and asking advice here, turning down the purchase of said Ultimate, looking around a bit, meeting a wonderful lady(through this forum) in my area who invited me to her home to see/play with her Millie, and taking a 'Renter's Prep class' at a shop near me (We R Quilts, Prescott, ON), I ended up going to a Quilt show in Kingston, Ontario and test drove a Lenni. I loved the Lenni. Not quite as big as Millie, but I don't need that extra throat space. There
  5. Hi Everyone. I just ordered a Lucey! As you can imagine I'm super excited. But now, as I wait, buyer's remorse sets in...well not remorse, but worry. My background is I'm a very confident quilter, published author, pattern designer etc. I've been quilting for more than 20 years and I've quilted most of my quilts on my DSM. I know and love my DSM very well. I have a Viking and I almost never have any trouble. Might have to tweak the tension once in a while but other than that it's a work horse. I've had it 9 years and had it serviced only once. And I'm embarrassed to say I'm ter
  6. Long story short...OK...not that short. My wife has been quilting using a Bernina quilt frame with a PFAFF QE 4.0 for a number of years. After a lot of research she decided to purchase a used (2003 I believe) APQS Millenium that appears to be in fantastic condition. Due to a number of unique circumstances she was not able to test the machine before she purchased it and the person that she purchased it from didn't know anything about quilting. We have the quilt frame home and set up in her studio and she can't figure out how to get it to work correctly. She doesn't have the manual for it a
