Instruction will focus on how to use the software tools provided by the EQ8 to create and construct quilts of various sizes and designs. Students, at their option, can bring a laptop running Windows 7, Windows 10 or later or Apple/Mac with the free EQ8 for Classroom installed.

 

NOTE FOR CURRENT EQ8 OWNERS: If you have Electric Quilt version 8 on your PC, be sure to start it while connected to the internet prior to coming to class.
