Features of an APQS Millie Longarm Quilting Machine
Intelligent Stitch Regulation
We use precise encoders tucked into our APQS Millie quilting machine wheels to give you the perfect stitch every time. Our stitch regulator isn’t a purely digital regulator, instead it relies on fuzzy logic to monitor not just your speed but also your direction. When you change directions you’ll get a point in your point… every time.
Motor rated at 3500 Stitches Per Minute
Our APQS Millie longarm machine motor is calibrated to reach 3500 stitches per minute. While you likely won’t go that fast normally, having a high SPM ability gives your motor greater headroom to speed up and respond to you as you change directions. It is an indicator as to how responsive your stitch regulator will be.
Adjustment Free Take Up Bar
The elevated roller means you never have to raise it as the bulk of the quilt grows as you stitch with your APQS Millie quilting machine. And the leveler bar in front keeps your quilt surface level.
Bobbin Thread Cutter
Cut your bobbin thread with the APQS Millie longarm machine using the touch of a button to quickly swap out thread colors and change the location of the machine on the quilt. This is a feature you’ll only find on an APQS Millie longarm.
Electronic Horizontal and Vertical Channel Locks
Electronic horizontal and vertical channel locks: With the touch of a button, your wheels are locked out so the APQS Millie quilting machines can only be moved in one direction. This feature is the number one way to keep your quilt top square to the Mille table so you end up with a square quilt!
Adjustable Ergo Handles
Ergo handles (front and back, with finger touch button control): Change your grip depending on your quilting style while still being able to control APQS Millie quilting machines even when it is at the back of the table. The Mille has a big throat, and these handles allow you to control the machine even when you are at the back of the table.
Interchangeable Hopping Foot
Change out the APQS Millie longarm machines’ hopping foot to an open toe design! Your machine comes ready to accept different feet for the different kinds of quilting you do.
LED Lighting and Built In Blacklight
Bright, clear lighting increases accuracy. The built-in black light lets you adjust the lighting with the flip of a switch on all APQS Millie longarm quilting machines.
Your Choice Size Bobbin- L or M
You get a choice of the size bobbin you prefer so the APQS Millie longarm quilting machines are specifically made to your tastes and style of quilting. There is no difference in price; just tell me how you want it made at the factory!
APQS Beginner's Class & Start Up Kit
We want you to be as comfortable and as confident with your machine as possible! Your longarm education is just as important to us as the purchase of your machine. You’ll get a full, one day class to learn how to use your APQS Millie machine. Each machine also comes with a starter kit with needles, a pantograph, bobbins and some thread to get you started.
Bliss Track System
Replaces half the quilting machines wheels with linear ball bearings. Fingertip touch control!
Auto Fabric Advance
Automatically roll the quilt forward or backward with the touch of a button. Keeps the quilt rolling straight and consistent on the quilting machines.
A secondary form of stitch regulation used when doing heirloom stitching like pebbles, micro-stippling and McTavishing.
