  1. My old hopping foot (for my 2011 Freedom) wore out, meaning the screw holes got stripped to the point where the foot would jiggle and wobble as I quilted. If I needed to use a ruler, the ruler would push the foot over to almost under the needle. I had already bought the kit of hopping feet, so I tried a couple of those, and I loved them. But, I really wanted my regular hopping foot for using rulers. So, I bought a new one, along with the shank to screw it into. The new hopping foot was shaped different from my old one, and I was worried it might not "agree" with the old shank. The new sha
  2. I am quilt for a gal that is wanting to use 2 layers of warm & natural, need to know pros/cons. Do I need to adjust to a longer stitch length so that it does not create a tightness and cause it to pucker? All opinions welcome TIA, Diane on a Millie
  3. Hi we adjusted our hopping foot the other day as we notice the stitch plate was wearing, then I notice about an hour later the hooping foot needed to be adjusted again as it moved Today I have notice the hoping foot moves up and down quite freely and I am pretty sure it should not do that at all So I tried to adjust again and i am able the move the hoping foot up and down easily Any help would be greatly appreciated Joy Australia
  4. I really like doing ruler work. However, I cannot get the back of my hopping foot up next to my ruler. I'm using DeLoa's castle or her Little Bitty. My ruler hits the angled shank of the hopping foot before the ruler gets up next to the foot. This causes me to have a larger than 1/4" stitch line when using the ruler on the back of my hopping foot.. I have a 2013 Millie. Maybe I'm not using the right foot. Would someone please post a picture of the correct foot to use with a ruler, please? (take the pic from the side so I can see how the foot and shank are supposed to look). Thank you s
  5. I could raise the hopping foot on my old 2004 Millie but the one I got in January 2013 doesn't have the same opening. I don't normally do "thicker" quilts but this is a t-shirt top with batting and a fuzzy blanket back. The t-shirts tuck as I try to go across and create a pleat. Any suggestions ??

  7. I haven't quilted a lot of quilts yet, but so far I've usually used one layer of either 80/20 Hobbs, or 100% cotton. I just loaded a quilt that needs 2 layers of batting. Do I need to raise my hopping foot? It's lightly touching the top of the quilt. I don't have any different needles, so I hope that's not an issue, but I also don't know how to raise the hopping foot. I have a 2013 Freedom. Any advice would be appreciated. Lori
  8. My husband and I are trying to replace the broken hopping foot on my 2012 Millenium. We have the hook assembly, locking collar etc removed but cannot get the hook shaft to move back into the machine to take out the broken hopping foot. Any one have ideas on how we can get it to move. Typically it is now a holiday here in Australia and soon will be in the US so am not able to contact APQS direct. Looks like I might have to do some outside work instead of quilting.
