Apqs Ulitmate 1 and Ultimate 11


Recommended Posts

Can the Ultimate 1 and Ultimate 11 be compatible with a computer such as the quilt path.

What years were these Ultimate made and did the tables come with quilt glide and quilt advance? Is bliss available to these machines?

Im told stich regulation does not come with these machines?

Would this be a good machine to purchace for a 1st time quilter or would it be to difficult to learn on? I am totally green on this. What would be a fir price for these with a 14 ft table? Thankyou for any advice you have for this newbie.

Not compatible with Quilt  Path.  Ultimate 1 with the single stitch was compatible with Intelliquilter.

I believe the Ultimate machines were made until around  2000 when the Millennium came out. The ultimate 1 continued as the Freedom until that machine became stitch regulated.  The power advance was an option with the later  Ultimate 1 machines .

Im told stich regulation does not come with these machines?

Correct.  Some machines had  it added aftermarket.  Intellistitch was the most common but no longer available.  At one time APQS would take Ultimate 1 machines in on trade and then when they had enough the would  rebuild them to Millennium spec and call them Green Millennium machines, also no longer available.

If you have done any free motion quilting on your domestic machine you already understand how to control the stitch length by keeping your movements consistent and smooth.  If not may spend some money and take a lesson with someone and their long arm and try it out in unregulated mode.  Nothing wrong with an Ultimate 1 if you can get it cheap enough, like maybe a thousand dollars.   A few thousand more would probably get you a stitch regulated Lenni.
