    Question: What does it mean by Duration of 10 or 14 weeks?
    Our standard duration for teacher help is 10 weeks. If you feel you need longer we have an option to select 14 weeks of teacher help. We find this is plenty of time for the student to be engaged. After the teacher time is ended you still have access to the class data and you also have access to extend your time at a later date (details are included in each class)

    Once purchased, you can access the class data at any time, 24 hours a day for as long as you need. On occasion, a teacher or workshop may retire, in this case we will give you fair warning so you can download the class data so you can still access the information.

Electric Quilt is a complex set of programs specially designed for quilters that can revolutionize how you design and make quilts. This workshop was created for EQ7 and EQ8 users.

All the instructions are accompanied by colored screenshots and videos of what to do so that you can see exactly what is happening and follow along easily.
