Features of an APQS Millie Longarm Quilting Machine
- Stitch regulator: When you use an APQS Mille longarm machine, you’ll immediately notice the superior stitch quality. It’s one of the main reasons people turn to APQS for their longarm needs.
- Floating horizontal wheels: An APQS Mille is perfectly balanced on horizontal wheels so you can stitch beautiful motifs easily with superb handling.
- Adjustment-free quilt take-up roller: The elevated roller means you never have to raise it as the bulk of the quilt grows. And the leveler bar in front keeps your quilt surface level.
- Laser light with front and rear post: Easily follow a paper pattern with the precision laser. Get started with your Mille right away!
- Bobbin thread cutter: Cut your bobbin thread with 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 a Mille long arm.
- Electronic horizontal and vertical channel locks: With the touch of a button, your wheels are locked out so the 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!
- Stand alone APQS turbo bobbin winder: Consistently wound bobbins are the key to consistent tension.
- 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 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.
- Synchronous timing belt drive: APQS machines are precisely held in time through our belt drive technology. Enjoy tension and stitch integrity that will be the same for the life of your machine.
- Single thread disk tensioner: Having only one place to set tension means our machines can run a wide range of even the most finicky threads, opening up your creative options.
- Self lubricating bushings: The amount of oil required to care for an APQS machine is a fraction of what other quilting machines need, making maintenance simple and easy.
- Quiet, enclosed DC motor: APQS combines technology with sleek design to give you a beautiful machine with the horsepower you need. Our integrated electronics and motor are tucked away behind the clean lines of our machines.
- Variable needle speed: Different types of quilting require an increase in needle speed to match the complexity of the design. A touch of the button gives you the control you need without having to navigate a series of menus. APQS has the fastest needle speed in the industry at 0-3500 stitches per minute.
- Interchangeable hopping foot: Change out the 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.
- Auto needle positioner: When you come to a halt, your APQS machine will not stop partially in the fabric; it will either stop in the full-up or full-down position depending on your preference.
- Single stitch button, two position: Whether you like to tack your starting/ending stitches or knot & bury, you can control it all with the touch of a button.
- Free one-day beginner class, online training videos, and start-up supply 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.
- LED lighting with built in backlight: Bright, clear lighting increases accuracy. The built-in black light lets you adjust the lighting with the flip of a switch.
- Your choice of Smart Bobbin© (L size) or Big Bobbin© (M size): You get a choice of the size bobbin you prefer so your machine is specifically made to your tastes and style of quilting. There is no difference in price; just tell me how you want your Mille to come!
