Everyone’s learning style is different. Some prefer handwritten steps, like a user manual or lesson book. Some prefer on-screen videos to watch a demonstration, then they repeat what they saw. Others like the immersive experience of a hands-on, in-person, live class.

We are proud to offer all three types of these educational opportunities for our customers.  :-)

EQ Academy in-person classes


For those of you who like the in-person experience, consider coming to our EQ Academy workshop this Spring in Ohio! We have dozens of students already enrolled from all over the U.S. (and Canada!). Think of all the friends you’ll make!

EQ Academy is held March 30-April 1 in northern Ohio. Though it makes for a fantastic weekend of learning, you don’t have to stay all three days. Come for just one or two classes to learn what you’re really interested in!

Several hotel options are available, local quilt shops are excited for you to visit, and our teachers are looking forward to helping you learn your EQ software!
