About EQ Academy
EQ Academy is a 3-day event for students wanting to learn how to use their EQ8 software. EQ8 classes are either half day (3 hours) or full day (6 hours) with an hour lunch break in between sessions. All classes will be taught by a member of the EQ Team. Each instructor brings years of experience and will provide practical content for the use of software.
How to fill your days: It is not required that you attend all 3 days of the event. You may enroll in as many classes as you like. If you do plan to attend all 3 days, we recommend filling your 3 days with as many classes as you can. Click here to see a complete schedule (PDF) of all the classes being offered.
These are EQ8 computer classes. There will be no sewing during class time.

- Laptop with EQ8 software installed and validated

Hotel and Travel
Lodging and travel are not included in the cost of the workshop. You must make your own arrangements.
We have a block of rooms at the Home2 Suites by Hilton (new hotel walking distance from the classrooms) for $129.00/night + tax. View this hotel on a map. Once you have enrolled at EQ Academy, you will receive a confirmation of your enrollment with a special link for the hotel, as well as other hotel and travel suggestions.
We encourage you to share a room with another student, or share rides to/from the airport. After enrollment you can find a roommate via the EQA Student Forum.
The best airport options would be Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW), which is about an hour away or the Toledo Express Airport (TOL) which is about 25 minutes away.
Again, all this information will be available (via a link in your confirmation email) after you enroll for the class. If you cannot find this information after registering, please contact our office.
