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?! STUDENT REVIEWS: “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

EQ8 Learning Paths

Posted 02-10-2023 by | Posted in: EQ Academy

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.          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
