ELECTRIC QUILT CLUB Instructor-Yvonne Menear


Instructor: Yvonne Menear

Everyone is welcome to join us as we study the EQ8 quilt design software each month.  Classes are held on the second Saturday of the month
 at Dragonfly Quilting and Gifts.  (Additional classes may be added during the month due to popular demand and our educator's availability)

Class is from 9 am. to 4 pm. on the scheduled dates. Please come a few minutes early to set up so you are ready to start immediately at 9 am.

All levels of students are welcome!

We will be looking at all the design tools available in the EQ8 software program and learn how to apply them as we work through this very comprehensive quilt design program.

You will learn how to draft blocks (pieced, foundation pieced, applique, photo blocks, quilt stencil designs), apply fabrics, import fabrics of your choice, add photos to blocks and design for traditional, modern, and contemporary styles of blocks and quilt layouts.
There are printing features for every style of block, printing templates and cutting instructions for each type of block, and you will learn how to create various quilt layouts from every type of block.

The possibilities are absolutely endless!

We will also touch on importing fabric samples from various fabric companies on the web along with learning how to scan and import your own fabrics. You will learn to design using the current fabrics available from Dragonfly Quilting and Gifts.

Each month, we will work with a different feature of the program. As you progress along through the months, you will have a thorough knowledge of the program.

This program is available for both the PC and Mac users.
Purchase your EQ8 program directly from the Electric Quilt company and download it instantly to your laptop ready to use in class.

Supplies for the class include:

o Laptop with power cord for computer and extension cord

o A mouse or drawing tablet is easier to use than the mouse pad built into the keyboard. When using an external mouse or pad, make sure you have batteries that are fully charged to work for extended hours in class.

o EQ8 loaded onto laptop (make sure you visit the website to
update to the most current version of the EQ8 software program). We are only teaching from EQ8—previous versions of the software will not be covered in class.

o Bring a
USB stick with your name on it so the instructor can transfer fabrics, blocks, and images that we will be using each month in class.

o Before class, make sure you open the program while connected to the internet to authenticate the program. This process is a security feature to ensure you are not using pirated EQ8 software. This needs to be done on a regular basis. If you have not used the program for an extended period, the program will not open if you are not on the internet.
