The Fabric Patch



APQS Machine Options

Power Fabric Advance

The Power Fabric 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 pick up roller to move your quilt ahead, saving time.

The power fabric advance feature is available on all Millennium and Freedom machines for $1,350.

Quilt Glide

Quilt easier with the APQS Quilt Glide feature. 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 the Quilt Glide is on, you'll feel like you're gliding through your design like smooth pen strokes.

Add the Quilt Glide feature to your new Millennium or Freedom for only $1,250. (The feature can also be retrofit to any 2008 or newer Millennium.)

Bliss Drive System

Bliss - it's the only word we could find that could describe the "floating on air" feeling you'll get when you quilt with our exclusive drive system.

The Bliss Drive System dramatically reduces friction and increases ease of movement. Combine this with an APQS Millennium or Freedom sewing head, and you'll feel like you're gliding across your quilt effortlessly.
