Electric Quilt - How Does It Work & Should I Invest?



This introductory demonstration gives a student who owns the Electric Quilt program the confidence to go home and play with it. It's also good for someone who just wants to see how Electric Quilt works before making the decision to purchase it.
Take your quilting into the computer age. Play with color, design and pattern ideas. Rotate or mirror blocks, recolor, add sashing, figure yardage, generate accurate patterns and more with the click of a mouse. Take a tour to see if this design tool is for you.
Many of the commands are what you are already familiar with from use of computers, phones, and tablets.
No computer or EQ software is required for this class, it is lecture and demonstration.
