EQ Academy Recap – Spring 2022

Posted 05-04-2022 by | Posted in: EQ Academy

Scroll down for pictures! Spring was certainly blossoming last week in Perrysburg, Ohio as we witnessed a new group of students (and some returnees) growing in their understanding of EQ8 during our 3-day EQ Academy! There were 62 students in attendance from all over the United States and even Canada! Some students were taught the beginning skills of using EQ8, while others honed their block-drawing and quilt-design talents! In different classes students also learned how to import their fabric stash, were taught the best practices for designing t-shirt quilts, and expanded their ideas for how to use borders! Overall, lots was learned, fun was had, and great relationships were formed! We can’t thank everyone enough who attended, including our awesome teachers! A special shout out and thanks to our incredible sponsors who provided us with goodies to create amazing welcome bags and daily giveaways! Our next EQ Academy is scheduled
