General machine maintenance

Pretend your APQS longarm machine is training for the Olympics. Just like Olympic athletes who train hard, they also need to make sure they are stretching, eating right and getting enough rest. Your longarm machine is the same way. To keep your machine running in its best shape, make sure it is well-oiled.

Another part of owning an APQS longarm machine is understanding the costs of service and repair. APQS machines are designed for industrial use, so you’ll be able to quilt hundreds of quilts before your machine may need in-depth service. They’re heavy duty. They’re built to last. Dawn Cavanaugh discusses what might need servicing down the road in this article.

Remember: all new APQS longarm machines now come with a lifetime warranty on parts and labor.

Thread breakage

There can be times where you’re hard at work on a quilt and your thread decides not to cooperate! The good news is that most thread breakage issues have easy solutions, which you’ll read about in our article on thread breakage.
