Spanish Translation Available (Traducción al español disponible)

Lessons for Beginners in Spanish, or Lecciones para Principiantes, was translated by Marga Jackson, but it was completed thanks to the collaboration of her namesake Margarita Gutierrez, the person who prompted her to translate the book.

Marga has tried to keep the soul of the design of the original edition, whilst constantly having to create more room for the extra lengthy Spanish words! She has also kept the English words that were necessary to keep the flow of work in English, and added a small booklet, included with the book, that contains the translation and some more information about those words or phrases, plus she signs all of the books with a “Thank you” note.

You can buy the book directly at https://buttonpic.es/ or contact Marga at her email: cisesjs@gmail.com; phone +34633110325; or Facebook at “El club de Buttonpic” group.


French Translation Available (Traduction française disponible)

Lise Langevin and Carmen Lefebvre have teamed up to produce printed versions of the EQ8 Manuel de référence and the EQ8 Leçons pour débutantes in French.

Lise and Carmen are quick to point out that they are not translation experts, but they are passionate quilters and therefore very detailed oriented. They have put their hearts into their translations. Lise and Carmen teach EQ8 classes in Canada.
