These are the classes I teach from my home or can take on the road. If you and a couple of friends would like to book a class in your home, or for your Guild please email me for my schedule.
Electric Quilt Software Classes
EQ6 or EQ7 Beginner Class : This class is a 3 to 4 hour hands on class that takes you through the beginning steps of creating your own quilt. We cover the basics of the program using several of the libraries that are built into EQ software. We will design three different quilts each with a different focus. This is a fun class and geared towards those who have EQ on their computers and haven't really used the program yet, or for those thinking of getting EQ software but would like to see more of what can be done with it first. With advance notice a full functioning demo copy of EQ6 can be loaded onto participants laptops, this demo copy will be active for approx 5 days after the class. Each student will need a laptop computer. This class can be held at my home with a maximum of 5 participants or in your home or studio.
EQ6 or EQ7 The Next Step Class: This is a 3 to 4 hour class that goes a step beyond the beginner class. Here we will be using the applique design drawing part of EQ software to design applique blocks that will then be used in a quilt design. For this class the participants should have a basic knowledge of EQ6 or have taken the beginner class. Each student should have a laptop with a copy of EQ6 or EQ7 software loaded.
Frame Quilting Classes
Basic Frame Quilting:These classes are 4 or 6 hours if you have your own frame set up and haven't used it or just need some advice and confidence to really get going then this is for you. I will come to your home and show you some of the tips and tricks I use when I quilt for other people. From how to design which quilt pattern to use to implementing that design to enhance your quilt and everything in between. We'll get you using that frame and enjoying your quilting experience.
Fabulous Feathers : This class is all about feathers and how to make them with little or no marking from all over feather designs to those twirly whirly feathers that make you go WOW. You will learn some of the tricks to making them look fantastic (and nobody but you will know how easy they really are). Yhis class can be done at your studio or mine.
