What is EQ8?

Electric Quilt 8 is a software that allows you to design unique one-of-a-kind quilts,  calculate fabric, and generate cutting instructions, all with the click of a mouse!  Design a quilt to be the perfect gift for someone special! This class will show you how.

Why do I need EQ8?

  • Have ever found a really beautiful fabric, but could not find the right pattern to do it justice?
  • Have you ever found a great pattern, but the instructions were the wrong size?
  • Have you ever been so frustrated with a pattern that you just scrapped the whole project and quit?
  • Have you ever gotten a little bored with quilting, and need a new challenge to keep it fresh?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then EQ8 is for you!

  • Recreate existing patterns in any size

About the instructor

Hi, my name is Sandi Strenkowski, and I have been quilting for over two decades!   I was also a homeschool mom for 19 years with four kids.  I have a degree in Computer science, and I've done technical support for Apple for eight years.  Even with all of my technology skills, I remember becoming frustrated trying to learn EQ8, so, I decided to combine my passion for quilting and knack for technology with my love of teaching.  These classes are the result.   My goal is to bring you to a place where you say YES!  I can do this!
