APQS Millenium (2000-2001 model) Non smoking home. Do have pets - dog & cat but are not included with the machine!! I live near the Tri-cities area which makes Roanoke, Charlotte, Knoxville, and Charleston within a 3 1/2 hour or less drive. I can work with someone on transporting the machine. The poles are 12 feet long! Everything you need is included - the only thing you supply is the quilts and batting. Includes: 12' Frame with Bliss upgrade rails Stitch Regulator Auto fabric advance Hydraulic lift Micro handles Over 140 spools of thread - many new in package - all assorted colors (most are Superior Brand) Assorted spools of Superior’s King Tut variegated thread 1000+ prewound bobbins Turbo bobbin winder Extra bobbin cases Extra needles Multiple zipper sets - easily move quilts on and off frame Acrylic tool assortment including an assortment of flowers, shapes A few sample pantographs APQS Manuals Multiple design books as well as practice books for learning longarming Pros: Workhorse of a machine - will go forever Automatic fabric advance is wonderful Every thread color you could ever want Sturdy frame with hydraulic lift Cons: One of the four machine handles needs to be replaced ($85 from APQS) If adding an Intelliquilter (not included) or other computer will definitely need to go for a spa day Machine would benefit from a spa day at APQS to completely overhaul the inner workings and fine tuning however it works great as a freehand machine. Selling as is so that whoever purchases the machine can send it in to APQS and any warranted parts will be in their name - handles are interchangeable from the front to the back so the handle with the failing switch didn't really affect me as I don't sew from the back. In standard stitch regulated mode, the machine works great. I have ran the machine with the IQ for the past five years and had no issues until November 2020. My issues seem to always be with the tension so it might just be me. It worked for my husband but got grumpy whenever I tried to take over. I believe there is an APQS tech out of the Fairfax, Va area who works on machines as well so if needed she might be able to reach out sooner than APQS. I did have my Intelliquilter hooked up and the machine and the IQ were having a battle over settings and tension. My husband purchased a brand new machine for me (awesome gift) and so I decided rather than send the machine in I would lower the price. That way any work that would be done would all be under the new owner's account for warranty purposes. If I send it in for the machine overhaul, the price would be $5000 for the machine, frame and extras, instead, the asking price is $4000. Please email for more information - email@example.com

I am looking for a SIT-DOWN model long arm machine that is on a movable track table (not a stationary long arm machine) for finishing quilts. I have some degenerative spine issues and standing to use the long arm for any period of time is no longer an option. But I can sit for hours and still work. I have looked at the HG 16, as well as the Avante. I have also considered a King Quilter on a shorter table. I am not tied to make and model at this time. Convenience and price are the deciding factors for me right now. I work as an art quilter and thread painter. I have a studio in Southwest Virginia ( between Roanoke and Lynchburg.) Please let me know if you have a long-arm machine on a short work table for sale. Thank you! Create Beauty ad fill the World with LOVE! Wynn Creasy Litte Old Lady Quilting
