No hints and just one suggestion - ENJOY!
I've never used it, but what I do with any new app is go through all the menus and icons and click them to see what they do. You can't do any harm in a sample file. Play and enjoy.
I got it about 2 years ago and after many headaches, its been sitting quietly by itself haha -- but before that occurred I used Shape Moth's tutorial to make a paper piecing pattern that worked really well!! -- http://shape-moth.blogspot.com/2011/12/designing-paper-piecing-patterns-in-eq7.htmlHave fun! Can't wait to hear how it goes!
I couldn't create the majority of my patterns without EQ7, even my applique BOMs are done on it. Shout me if you get stuck, there's no real tips to give you until you get going and come across a stumbling block :) There are videos on YouTube that you may find useful though.
Nope, nothing from me, I have Touchdraw and Jenny's app and they have to compete with my preferred square paper, pencil and a calculator!
Oh, awesome! I've been looking at buying this program (currently there's a poll on Massdrop for a group buy of EQ7, so I'm keeping fingers crossed on getting it). Know that I will need guidance in using it, so am keen to learn along with you, Susan.
had it 2 years and still can barely use 10% of it..... i enjoy the 10% mind!
Love it! just play, keep the book by your side, watch the online tutes - and enjoy!
play, play and more play.
yes play - but also visit the eq website/blog and go through the tutorials.....
No advice - but Im excited for you- imagine all the really cool creations you can mock up in that program!
Hire an IT expert - oh wait, you're married to one! Handy! Jxo
You will love it! Watch the tutorials, but just playing around is the best way to learn it I think.
Have fun! No tips here (I'm still firmly in the paper and pencil camp!) but I'm sure you'll love it once you get going!
Ooh fun. I've not used it, but if the EQ7 site has tutorials I'd definitely start there.
There are very useful video tutorials within the help section of the program, and also the book is totally helpful. You just need to sit and go through the chapters. You will see what your needs are, and can skip some parts you don,'t need for now. I know once you figure it out you will love it! I love the option to be able to scan my own fabrics and see the end result before I even took a stitch! I haven't explored the applique options yet. Good luck to you and enjoy!
have fun! I'm still getting to grip with Touchdraw but love just playing with different ideas (we won't talk about the stress of not having enough time to try them all out/knowing where to start!) x
I've had it for years and love it. I went through all the Lessons that were included and worked through the book (I'm wired that way). Now I just find out how to do what I want to when I get to it. There is a great help section in the programme, and the website has lovely ideas and suggestions to get ideas from, as well as free patterns to play with. Enjoy!
Greetings from Oklahoma, USA. I follow you on bloglovin too. I love your project, fabric and would just love to win this. This reminds me of some place mats you did earlier. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com
