Features of an APQS Millie Long Arm Quilting Machine
We use precise encoders tucked into our APQS Millie 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.
Our APQS Millie 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.
The elevated roller means you never have to raise it as the bulk of the quilt grows as you stitch with your APQS Millie. And the leveler bar in front keeps your quilt surface level.
Cut your bobbin thread with the APQS Millie 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 long arm.
Electronic horizontal and vertical channel locks: With the touch of a button, your wheels are locked out so the APQS Millie machine 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!
Ergo handles (front and back, with finger touch button control): Change your grip depending on your quilting style while still being able to control the APQS Millie machine 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
Change out the APQS Millie long arm machine’s hopping foot to an open toe design! Your machine comes ready to accept different feet for the different kinds of quilting you do.
Bright, clear lighting increases accuracy. The built-in black light lets you adjust the lighting with the flip of a switch on your APQS Millie long arm quilting machine.
You get a choice of the size bobbin you prefer so your APQS Millie machine is 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!
Consistently wound bobbins are the foundation to good tension. We build these industrial grade bobbin winders from scratch for use with the APQS Millie Long Arm Quilting Machine.
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.

Why Buy From Quilted Joy?
I have an APQS dealer closer to me, but I went a little further so that I could deal directly with Angela—she is definitely worth it
I purchased an APQS machine through Angela and it was an easy and reassuring process
Oh my gosh, Angela is THE best. As a new owner, my questions were endless as was her patience!!
I feel so much more confident that I can master this equipment and use it to its full potential. Thanks Angela!
I bought my APQS Lucey at Quilted Joy. I've received excellent training and prompt response when I have had questions.
