Hoppin Bobbin Newsletter


It's coming!  We are working on our row! 

We have had a great couple months, busy, busy with quilt shows, guild shows, new patterns, many quilts quilted and still many more to go.  New fabrics have arrived and new classes have been booked. We have been debating on what to do for our Row by Row pattern but have had so many other things going on, it isn't complete yet.  I truly believe that creativity cannot be rushed, or is that just my excuse because I've been too tired to feel creative?   We also have been preparing for our "secret" to be announced and I know that many of you have been "patiently" waiting for it to be revealed. Some of you are good at trying, but you haven't gotten it out of me yet.  I am so anxious to tell you and we will let you know  Friday, the 20th.  So, look for an exciting email blast from us and a FB post arriving sometime Friday afternoon.  Mom and I will be at Quilt Market, but I promise, you will hear from us, all the way from Salt Lake City, Utah!

EQ7 Introduction

You will learn how the program works and what it can do. It's up to you as to how far you want to go. This class is a stepping stone to the next two classes in this series. If you have ever learned a computer program, you know it takes time for you to remember how it works and how you can utilize its capabilities. If you haven't taken a computer class and struggle with the EQ software, you will go home happy you decided to take this class!
