EQ8 Licences are Back in Store!

EQ8 Software

As we all know, the unexpected often happens...

As you probably know from our last mailings, we have actually been working on closing down Quilt around the World since the beginning of 2021. For example, we already decided at the end of 2020 to stop the sales of the EQ8 patchwork design software and only sell the remaining inventory at that time.

By a lucky coincidence, the cards have recently been completely reshuffled for us and we have - surprise! - decided to become active as resellers for EQ8 again. This means that Quilt around the World will indeed continue to exist, but "only" with a focus on EQ8 and with a small side show with My Year of Design, the Patchwork Puzzles and the Coincidence Quilts. Block Swaps and similar community quilt projects are still not planned!

Thus, we are happy to announce that EQ8 is back in our webshop...

EQ8 Workroom - Live Online Classes

EQ8 Workroom - Live Online Classes

What we would never have thought possible before Corona is now part of everyday life for many of us: work meetings and school lessons, family reunions and exhibitions, even entire quilt festivals are currently taking place in virtual space.

Also we at Quilt around the World have already made some surprisingly positive experiences with the first EQ8 software courses via video conference using MS Teams and have developed special EQ8 course concepts for newbies and advanced EQ8-users. At the moment, we offer these courses especially for our German-speaking community, because for many non-native quilters it is not so easy to find their way around the English EQ8 Software. Besides, there are already many very good courses in the English-speaking world.

Virtual Exhibition: 10 Years Quilt around the World

10 Years Quilt around the World #virtualquiltexhibition #quiltshow

Unbelievably, Quilt around the World celebrates its 10th anniversary this autumn! Looking back on all our past and present activities, putting all the participants' beautiful and outstanding work on the walls and thinking of the friendships with quilters from all over the world made the setting up of "10 Jahre - 10 Years Quilt around the World" a rather festive experience....

archiT46 - Timber Frame

Timber Frame #archiTEXTure #patchwork #quilting #textileart

This is inspirational photo #46 of our archiTEXTure Challenge:

This timber frame building is located in Stratford upon Avon where you
can walk the streets searching for the spirit of England‘s greatest bard. Did
the texture and the contrast created by the black beams and the white
plaster help to inspire him to create his dramas, plays and poetry? Or is this
source of inspiration reserved to us visual artists?

Patchwork Puzzles

Patchwork Puzzles #patchworkpuzzles #patchwork #quilt #better than sudoku

The Patchwork Puzzles have been an important part of the Quilt around the World project landscape since 2015. The block mysteries, as we then called them, were initially a part of the second edition of our design course "My Year of Design - A Journey of Thinking and Making". Since then the Patchwork Puzzles have come a long way and have acquired a select and very creative fan club of its own.
