I Love My Electric Quilt – 10 Tips For Using EQ

EQ Do You EQ BlogI’ve said it many times over, I love Electric Quilt. It is the most amazing software, they offer great support and when I really need them, they have always been their for me, including when I needed a replacement cd, because I didn’t have mine to reinstall EQ with. These are really great people that go well beyond what you’d expect for tech support, a helping and always friendly attitude and getting you so you feel comfortable using the software. They have been around now for 25 amazing years. Only the best softwares in the world can boast that kind of record.

I am my usual late self, for some reason, I just had it in my head that the 10th of the month was tomorrow, even said it on my post yesterday, and then last night Quiltshop Gal was sending me the rafflecopter code and letting us know she would not be online today..
