So here it is -- the last day of Quilt Canada! This is my second (least) favorite day of any show -- the takedown! The show closes at 4 PM and then we'll be working for about 5 hours (hopefully no more) to get everything ready to ship to its destination!
Yesterday, instead of working in the booth, I was able to take a class on the software for my longarm. OH MY --- this was definitely well worth skipping a day of booth duty.
The class was given by The Grace Company, which does software for their own machines, and APQS licenses it. This is quite common in the industry and makes a whole lot more sense than every company doing their own version and support.
I learned a LOT yesterday and the first thing I have to do when I get home is installing the UPGRADE. There is so much cool stuff in the new version. Thankfully it's easy to do. There were two of us in the room with APQS machines.
We each had our own machine which was great and we learned so many different techniques for custom quilting. And a few for pantographs.
I'm afraid it has to be short and sweet this morning. I have my Zoom presentations in 15 minutes. Today is all about show and tell time for the Jen Kingwell quilts. We worked on THREE quilts in two classes. Totally insane the amount of work that we signed up for! And there are so many completed quilts -- I don't think we have time to really talk about them. The number that got finished is UNBELIEVABLE. I'll be posting them on my blog later.
Have a super day!!!
