This is a fun course designed to help you become familiar with, and get the best from, your EQ Program. Copious notes will be provided and exercises will take you through most features of the program. Classes are spread out to allow time for practice and homework is available (but not mandatory) for those who wish to expand their skills.
EQ8 is the leading quilt design software. It allows you to design your own quilts and block patterns from start to finish. You can audition your own personal fabric stash, embroidery designs and quilting designs on your quilt before you make it. From your design you can print the quilt, including patterns for foundation piecing, templates and rotary cutting charts. EQ does the maths for you and you can even print your fabric yardage so you know how much to buy. A great advantage of EQ8, apart from its versatility, is in being able to see exactly what your completed quilt will look like, and avoid expensive mistakes. Using EQ you will always make a quilt that you are happy with. Imagine never having to unpick or waste material and time again!

If you have ever wanted to use particular fabrics but have not been sure how they would look made up, wondered what blocks go together, design a quilt around a panel you have purchased, create a medallion quilt, use those T Shirts to create a great memory quilt, or have a design in mind but need to change the size and automatically calculate yardage, etc – then this course is for you.
Come along and over 6 classes explore the many fascinating and fun features of the EQ Program. On completion participants will have a good understanding of how EQ works, be able to design and manipulate quilts and blocks, and use fabric and quilting designs to see how quilts will actually look when finished. The program is very versatile – I even designed my sewing room using EQ8.
A laptop and the installed EQ8 program are essential. Please open the EQ program on your laptop in the week prior to the course commencement.
