What a fun weekend! A huge thank you to all the students who joined us at EQ Academy last weekend—what a great time we had! A special thanks to our awesome teachers: Lori Miller, Nancy Roelfsema, Jenny Novinsky, Sara Seuberling, and Janice E. Frisch! Classes were wonderful as always and students learned so much. Scroll down for photos and info about our next EQ Academy.

Here are some of the quilts the beginners learned to design! How cool are these?!


“For a year, I played with EQ8 with minimal instruction/education. I had some success but more frustration than anything. All that changed this week at EQ Academy. I’m thrilled with how much I’ve learned and will definitely tell my friends about it!”

“EQ is a fantastic software program for ANY quilter! But, it’s more than that—it is the PEOPLE behind it—helpful, friendly, just a great group. Thank you EQ!”

“I learned so much in these classes. It was well worth my time and I can’t wait to use my new skills.”

I learned more within the first hour in person than I had spending hours online trying to understand what I was looking at.”

“Easy as 1-2-3! Step 1; get EQ8! Step 2; take the class! Step 3; make awesome quilt patterns!

“Because of the class, I feel confident to go home and be creative. I just knew enough to fumble around before.”

“These classes were absolutely worth it!


Thank you to our sponsors who generously donated items for student welcome bags, teacher goodies, and giveaways. These lucky winners took home some fantastic prizes!


We always enjoy meeting EQ users and watching them grow as designers! It brings us so much joy to empower them and help expand their creative abilities. We can’t wait for next year!
