By the end of Camp you will have touch all parts of the program.   Two of our APQS longarms have Quilt Path installed on them, so we are able to do demo things on a real system.  Most of the class is done with me working on Quilt Class projected on a screen and the campers working on their own copies of the software. 

You will need to bring either your Surface or a laptop with Quilt Path installed on it.   The charging cables for the system you bring and a willingness to learn.

New happenings!

The last month has been a complete whirlwind!   Kind of like a roller coaster after it makes it over the first uphill climb, I am just enjoying the crazy ride.



My first digital designs were released by Digi-Tech Designs!  Still can't believe I get to do this as part of my job!  I was posting pictures of some quilts I had done with designs that I created and people said they wanted them.  Jessica helped me make that possible.

Now I am seeing quilting designs everywhere.

Then I was asked to piece and quilt a very special quilt.  I got to use what every fabric I wanted and could quilt it however I wanted.  Love, Love, LOVE getting to be creative!  More on that project in a couple days.

I am getting to learn new software for the design part of my life.  Could this getting any better?  You all know how much I love to learn new software.

We hosted a week of classes to celebrate our first anniversary in the showroom.  And we have had many certification classes this summer.

Row by Row is still going strong!  I can't wait to find out what next year's theme is going to be!

And the last surprise, my parents made a sneak visit.  I did not think that they were going to be able to come back up until Thanksgiving.  Mom was able to help me with picking out fabric for the quilt.  She was actually here until I got done quilting it.  Dad helped us out by cleaning our garage.  It was so nice to have them here spoiling us!
