For those who follow my blog (and for those who don’t . . why don’t you??), you know that I truly love my Millennium. I’m proud to say that Vince and I are now officially APQS dealers. That means I can sell you a Millennium . . or a Freedom . . or . . or anything APQS has to offer. Call me . . I’m waiting. You could be my first sale!! 🙂
Back in 2000 or 2001, when I was at the point of quitting quilting on that poor old shortarm or getting a real longarm, Vince and I were both doing our own research separately. He’s brutal when he researches something; I wasn’t so brutal but we both came to the conclusion that APQS was the company for us. Vince liked the people he talked to; felt they were honest and he liked their responses to his technical questions. He liked the construction and design of the APQS machines. I liked that everyone I talked to who owned an APQS loved their machines.
For years, I’ve shared with anyone who would listen how much I love my Millennium. Now, I will officially represent APQS. Vince will do setup and maintenance.
Seriously, if you want a longarm, or think you might be interested in a longarm, for your own use or for a business, I’d be thrilled to spend some time with you.
Oh how I wish I had room for one Judy! We downsized at retirement to a much smaller home and I’m lucky to have room for my Janome! But I’m so glad you’re going to represent something you love – my Dad always said if you don’t love it you can’t sell it. He was a salesman extraordinaire! blessings, marlene
Congratulations! I wish I could be your first sale…lol Good luck with your new venture. 🙂

I own an APQS Millennium myself and I agree with you. The machines are top notch and the company and dealers are great. I’m so glad to see you join that team. It’s a winner all around! Congrats on your new venture Judy! You will do them proud!
Congratulations Judy! If I ever get more room and feel the urge to upgrade, the Millennium is the machine I want, and I know just who to call!
Congratulations on your new job, I can’t imagine a more helpful or friendlier representative than you and Vince! 🙂 Best wishes to you both! ~bonnie

Congratulations Judy. I wish I could have bought my Millie from you. You will be fantastic at this.
I’m using an older short arm now (Design-a-quilt); currently have two kids in college – one more year of tuition, and then I’m going to be ready for a true longarm. So feel free to educate me about all the wonders of APQS in the meantime!!!
Just today, while at the NW Quilting Expo, I test drove an APQS Millie! That is THE machine I want so bad I can taste it. But I will be good and continue to quilt on my short arm without a stitch regulator and dream. I told the lady when I grow up, this will be my machine!
How far can you go to sell one or do you have a territory?
Congratulations!!!!! I wish all the best for your new venture.
Congratulations!!! If I ever decide that I want upgrade from my mid-arm, the APQS is the one that I would upgrade too! So, if that day comes you will have a customer in me! How far would Vince go to set one up?
Sounds like a match made in heaven. Congrats!
Judy = this means if I need something, I can order from you. Are you and
Vince going to classes..is this why you are going t obe gone?
I am so happy for you! I am about ready to try out my first quilt on my Millie. You gave me so much help in answeriny my questions…and I did it.
Are you coming to Road again this year? I hope so!
I’m actually shopping for a longarm and doing research now. I have called most of the longarmers in my area and they have Gammills, A-1’s and 1 has a APQS. So I know next to nothing; but am open to lots of information. Unfortunately I live a bit to far for it to be your first sale….
Love your picture on their site.

What’s the price range for a machine like this? I don’t currently have one but it could fit in nicely with building up my empire before retirement in about 6 years.
Congrats on your new venture, Judy!
