Stitch Regulator

Our stitch regulator is the most precise in the industry. It provides accurate stitches – where you want them, when you want them. Most stitch-regulated machines simply measure speed and the distance moved, but our stitch regulator also measures direction, which is critical for achieving the crisp points and sharp corners, especially for stops, starts and quick direction changes. Switch off the stitch regulator to dial in the speed of the needle to match the complexity of the design. (All machines stitch 0-3,500 per minute).

Deluxe Table

The 8-, 10-, 12- and 14-foot deluxe table with adjustable height offers great time-saving features to make your quilting fun and easy.

Our sturdy, full-length rails and poles are built without junction points, allowing you to quilt smoothly across the entire frame. The quilt top, batting and backing all load from the top so you can easily change your bobbin in the middle of a quilt, or even quilt while sitting.

Standard Machine Features

Our machines are perfectly balanced on a horizontal wheel system to give you the ease of movement and superb handling you need to stitch beautiful motifs. It includes a set of wheels directly below the head for forward and backward movement, and another set of carriage wheels for sideways movement. The result? You can sew in any direction with ease. Or, check out our Bliss Track system as an optional accessory for optimal movement.

Bright clear lighting of your work-space increases your accuracy and makes quilting easier. Our machine’s LED lighting illuminates your work area, from the needle to the machine’s throat, with bright light so you can see every stitch, every detail as you quilt. A built-in black light provides contrast when stitching with white thread on a light quilt or other difficult-to-see thread and fabric combinations.

LED Lighting under quilting machine throat

Your machine comes ready to accept different optional feet for the different kinds of quilting you do. This makes it simple to change out the machine’s standard template/ruler hopping foot for another foot, such as an optional open toe foot for increased visibility.

The foot height can be adjusted up and down depending on the thickness of batting and/or fabric. Several optional accessory feet are available to help you explore other quilting techniques with your new longarm. Quick-change feet are available as a kit (shown) or sold individually.

Hopping Foot in case

When you purchase an APQS machine you have the option between two bobbins: Smart Bobbin© (L) or Big Bobbin© (M). This gives you the ability to customize your machine to your taste and style of quilting.

Bobbin Options

Our single stitch button is built into every handle switch for easy access right at your fingertips. Easily bring the bobbin thread to the top to keep the back of your quilt free from thread tails. Whether you like to tack your starting/ending stitches or knot & bury, you can control it all with the touch of a button. Use this feature to easily, yet precisely, place basting stitches exactly where you want them.

APQS uses the highest quality industrial-grade disc-style tensioner. Because it adjusts tension as the thickness of the thread changes, you can use virtually any kind of thread, from heavy polyesters to fussy cottons with ease.

The tension is easy to set, and your machine will maintain consistent tension, which is why experienced quilters all across the country prefer the thread tensioner used on APQS machines. Plus, the simplicity of the APQS tensioner ensures many years of trouble-free service.

Simple DIsc Tensioner on side of quilting machine

Quilters love how easy it is to follow a paper pattern with the precision laser included with all APQS stand-up machines. Move the laser to the front to trace block designs and motifs from the needle side of the machine. Power is supplied directly from the machine, so you’ll never have batteries to replace.

Laser Light Stylus

Choose whether you want the needle to stop in the full up or down position when you come to a halt. With the auto needle positioner, you never have to worry about tearing a quilt because the needle stopped partially in the fabric.

APQS carefully chose belt drive technology as the means of transferring power to the upper and lower shafts. This clean and quiet belt drive requires no grease, eliminating the potential to ruin your quilt. Ask any APQS owner and they will tell you that timing or re-timing is almost nonexistent. In addition, belt drive technology requires no lubrication, is quieter in operation and reduces vibration.

Synchronous Belt

Our self-lubricating needle bar and hopping foot bushings provide smooth operation with no additional lubrication required. This innovative and time-saving feature minimizes maintenance by eliminating unnecessary oiling. In fact, 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.

Self Lubricating Bushings

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.

Our beginner longarm quilting class (one-day) is taught at numerous locations across the US and other countries. You’ll learn the skills you need to complete typical quilting projects on your new longarm machine including how to maintain your machine and adjust the tension along with much more. We will also get you set up with start up supply kit.

Table & Frame

The 8-, 10-, 12- and 14-foot deluxe table with adjustable height offers great time-saving features to make your quilting fun and easy.

Most machine tables require the quilter to raise the take-up roller as the quilt sandwich is advanced to keep it from rubbing on the machine’s throat. The APQS Adjustment-Free Quilt Take-up Roller is already centered in the throat of our machines. You’ll never have to waste time raising or adjusting it, even at the end of a king- or queen-size quilt.

Our unique compression roller brakes let you adjust the quilt layers independently to manage all quilt types – from delicate antique quilts to heavy denim throws. Simply lift the brake handle to easily advance the quilt.

QuiltPath Computerized Quilting System on quilting machine

Bliss – it’s the only word we could find that could possibly describe that effortless feeling you’ll get when you quilt with our exclusive track system. Specially designed horizontal wheels on the sewing head and roller bearings on the table rails provide smooth, effortless and easy movement allowing you to quilt for hours without feeling tired.

Bliss™ track system maintenance

Unlike other channel systems on the market, the APQS rail profile prevents dirt and thread build-up so you can spend more time quilting and less time cleaning. No adjustments
are needed – all you have to do is quilt.

Bliss can be added to all new machines (except George) and you can choose a table length of 10'-, 12'- tables for all machines or a table length of 14' for Freddie and Millie (additional Deluxe Table cost of $2,000 applies for 14’ Lucey). Add the Bliss Track for $1,000.

Bliss can also be retrofitted to most existing APQS machines.

Bliss Track System

Quilt Glide combines manual sewing mode and stitch regulation mode to give you accuracy and consistency without that “jerky” feeling that is common when trying to do detail quilting in regulator mode alone. When engaged, the Quilt Glide keeps the needle moving up and down in stitch regulation mode, even when you stop moving the quilting machine. Since the needle
continues to stitch when Quilt Glide is on, you’ll feel like you’re gliding through your design like smooth pen strokes.

Add the Quilt Glide Stitch Mode feature to your new Millie, Millie30 or Freddie for only $1,250.

Quilt Glide Stitch Mode

The Automatic Quilt Advance with foot pedal control lets you advance or back up your quilt with the push of a button or a toe tap on the foot pedal. The motorized advance turns the take-up roller to move your quilt ahead, saving time while also keeping the quilt layers smooth and aligned. The Automatic Quilt Advance can be added to the Millie, Millie30 and Freddie machines or when Lucey is upgraded to a Deluxe table for $1,350.

The Automatic Quilt Advance adds an additional 8 inches to the width of the machine footprint.

Illuminate your work-space with an overhead lighting system from APQS. Simple to assemble and install on the Deluxe table, you can direct the five fixtures independently along the track and shine the light just where you need it. Since the system attaches directly to your frame, if you need to move your machine to a different spot, the light moves with it to always keep your quilting area well-lit.

The lighting system brings the total height of the APQS machine to 82 inches with the legs set as low as possible. If you’re considering this system, be sure to measure the height of your ceiling prior to purchasing the system.

The overhead lighting system can be added to the Millie, Millie30 and Freddie models or to a Lucey that is upgraded to a Deluxe table, and is available for an additional $795.

The hydraulic lift is available as an upgrade. It lets you adjust table height 9 inches with the push of a button, so you’ll always quilt in comfort. This means you can change the height for different quilting techniques, different machine users or even when you’re simply wearing different shoes. Fine-tune the best machine height for your quilting style. The hydraulic table lift can be added to all machines except George.

The cost of the Hydraulic table Lift is $1,650.
