  1. I am a new QP owner. Got it last month. Since the time I got it, I have watched ALL the Youtube videos available many times. I have read all of Thread Waggles written tutorials. I have copied all of the manual and read through it. I have uploaded QP to my laptop. I have read for many hours and taken notes. I have used it on two quilts and a plain muslin. Still, I find a lot of information VERY lacking. For instance: "Placement Methods", Page 12. It shows a drawing of EXACTLY what happened when I tried to place a pattern inside an odd-sized shape. The pattern doesn't fill it up in the picture. I turn to Page 13 to see what to do, and there is nothing more on the subject. Where can I go to find -- or buy -- more tutorials on how to use Quilt Path? Surely, one doesn't have to wait for classes that only occur a few times a year. My quilts can't wait for that. The person who installed it for me didn't know much about it herself, so I can't really call her. She didn't install the QP carriage correctly either. WHO can I call? WHERE can I go? WHAT can I buy? Any information would be very much appreciated. Joy

  3. Hi. I've been away for a while, doing some serious longarm quilting, and creating some new things. After several days running, I stopped accepting replies on the EQ7 Training Survey, and published the results on my blog. I also attach an image of the summary here. Please let me know if you are interested in the results, or if you interpret differently the results I summarized on my blog post. I am open to others' opinions, as I am not a professional statistician, nor a pollster. I want to share the results of the EQ7 Training Survey I announced a while back here on the forum. Based on traffic to that post on my blog, there seems to be quite a bit of interest in live, recorded online webinars to learn EQ7. Nobody is doing this, anywhere; mine will be a new way of learning EQ7! Note: I attach the image of the EQ7 Training Survey Results. I invite you to share it widely; I also would love to read your comments about my interpretation of the results! Another learning option is to attend in person one of the hands-on classes (I will be teaching those, too). However, for many of us, precious time is hard to dedicate to traveling, and even harder to justify motel/hotel, meals, etc. Online webinars are a great option, however. I will make the recordings of the webinars available to attendees for a specific time frame after I upload the finished videos to my website. I look forward to your comments! Meanwhile, I invite you to read the Survey Results on my blog, Learning to Quilt. I am also dedicating 2 brand-new websites to my EQ7 Training effort: EQ7 Training, which will include everything else that is not webinars, such as free tips, lessons, patterns, etc. EQ7 Training Videos, which will be the place where I announce upcoming webinar dates, and dates for my weekly EQ7 Training Office Hours. Thank you for your attention! Al
  4. Hi. I am new to the Forums. I am Al Navas, EQ7 Instructor. I live in NW Missouri. I wanted to share the following, as there might be some interest here. I published on my blog this morning: An announcement of an EQ7 webinar interest survey. I you are interested in the online webinars, I invite you to participate in the survey. I also published a new page on the blog, describing the courses I will offer. My blog is Learning to Quilt. You can find it at http://www.startingtoquilt.com/. Thank you! Al

  7. George training classes

    I am as always looking forward to the Houston quilt show this year. Is there going to be any classes from APQS for George owners? I noticed last year there were classes for APQS but nothing for us George owners. I noticed some competitors had lots of classes for sit down model owners and was hoping APQS would do the same for George owners. Any word?

  11. Hi everyone. Hope you all had a great holiday and a happy new year. I have a general question of you all. I am a newbie and plan on attending NEQF 2013 in Manchester in April. What do you recommend for a newbie to do as far as classes..i.e. how many classes, which ones are most helpful and what you would not recommend as far as number of classes, etc. Any advice would be appreciated. I need to get registered SOON. Thanks so much.
