EQ Pearls of Wisdom – Giveaway Winners!

Posted 01-04-2022 by | Posted in: Congratulations   EQ Pearls of Wisdom  

Thank you all for celebrating our 30th anniversary with us! We loved hearing all your stories and learning how EQ has impacted your life! We wouldn’t be where we are today without YOU, our amazing customers! From those who started with EQ1 to those who just bought EQ today, we are very grateful.

Giveaway Winners

Three winners were randomly selected to each win a $30 Visa gift card. Congratulations to…

Winner 1: Jim and Liz Parker

“I am new to EQ8. We got it after acquiring an Accuquilt cutting system and seeing the information on their website. I also purchased and have been going thru the Beginners Book. So amazing! My husband wanted to learn how to use the EQ8 system too and is having so much fun designing blocks and quilt projects. Our quilting project, for 2022, is to start creating his designs. With so many choices of fabrics, designs and wonderful online assistance, we are truly one of your biggest fans!”

Winner 2: Alice Brown

“I’ve been an EQ8 user for one month now. Had intentions of making a quilt from one of the major quilt publications, but was stumped on how it would look with the fabrics from my stash. The design is one that needs attention to detail. I was able to draft a copy of the quilt block and completely duplicate the quilt using approximations of my own fabrics. It changed my choices multiple times, but I’m now actively making the quilt. Thank you for the care with which this software is designed. It’s a joy to use!”

Winner 3: Melanie C

“I started using EQ about 3 years ago and it has made designing quilts so much easier!!! I love being able to see my quilt before I actually sew it!”

Thank You

Thank you for 30 great years, we are looking forward to many more! Catch up on all the Pearls of Wisdom posts here, and let us know which was your favorite in the comments below!
