Lately I have been busy working with Electric Quilt. It is a fabulous tool for designing blocks (think Row by Row or shop hops), auditioning the latest fabric collections, or creating a new quilt to kit up for your customers, or as a springboard for a new pattern exclusive to your shop.
Are your Electric Quilt skills ready to take on these tasks?
If you or your employees and instructors would like to work on expanding your EQ expertise, I can provide you top level instruction with classes that can be taken from the comfort of your home. (No travel costs!)
I have three options available for you.
More information on each of these options is included below. I would love to have you join me. But first....
Here is the link to the Moda fabric swatch collections. You may want to copy and save this one in your bookmark favorites, as this was a bit tricky to locate:

Here are the promised details on my classes:
Option 1: Introduction to Electric Quilt Online Class Starting January 26th
This class is for the beginner or someone needing a refresher on the basics of the software.
This online class will cover basic navigation of the software, creating a new project, using the libraries, using Quick Quilts for fast projects, adding borders, coloring tools/fabrics, creating quilt labels and printing quilts, blocks, fabric yardage estimates, rotary cutting and foundation patterns. By the end of the two sessions you will be comfortable working with the program and be able to explore additional features on your own. Users of all levels are welcome, with special emphasis on beginners.
Dates: January 26 and February 2nd. 6:30 - 9:00 pm (Central time)
Class size will be limited to 10 participants. We will use screen sharing technology -- so you will be able to see my screen and if you have specific questions, I will also be able to view yours as well.
In the newsletter I e-mailed to you, I have included a coupon code for $25 off the Introduction to EQ Class. If you have any questions send me a note.
Option 2: EQ Private Coaching Program
You are not alone. I’ve been there and understand the frustrations in learning a new program. I’ve had that great quilt idea and struggled with drafting a viable design that I could easily piece. I wished I had a private coach to help me with my specific challenges. I would love for you to know the incredible power of Electric Quilt and experience the satisfaction of creating that awesome design through the use of Electric Quilt.
I know that you may be ready to make the commitment to expand your knowledge and use of Electric Quilt. I have openings in my schedule and will be taking on a limited number of private coaching clients to work with in expanding your Electric Quilt technical skills.
Option 1: $250 for three month program (6 coaching sessions).
Option 2: $450 for six month program (13 coaching sessions).
