This class will cover the basics of using EQ8 including how to being a new quilt design, design blocks, and import images such as fabric or photos.  Learn to print templates and foundations, rotary cutting directions, and fabric requirements.  Plus, we'll explore many features and capabilities of EQ8 to get you going on using this terrific tool for block design, quilt layout, and color and fabric auditioning.

Supply List:
Laptop computer (Mac or Windows 7 or 10) with EQ8 installed** (see info below)
External mouse if needed
POWER SUPPLY - don't forget your cord
Pencil/Pen and Paper
Reading glasses, if needed

** If you don't own EQ8, we'll install it on your computer before the day of class and then activate in class.  The activation will be good for several days after class; so, you'll be able to try out the various features and print blocks and quilt designs.  Installation will not affect your current EQ software if you have a previous version installed.  We'll find a mutually agreeable time to load the software onto your computer.
