Yvonne Menear

Yvonne Menear lives in Langley, British Columbia, and is an international speaker and educator for the home sewing industry. She concentrates on teaching quilting, machine embroidery, quilt design, digitizing machine embroidery, and teaching basic computer skills for the home sewer.

As a quilter and machine embroidery individual, I learned very quickly that I could do so much more with my computerized machines if I knew how to use the computer and all the different programs that support our quilt designing and machine embroidery designing. Using the internet for information and resources for products really helped me to grow in my love of sewing. I realized this is the type of information others needed to have also, so I began my teaching career. I had all ready retired from my career as a dental hygienist of 40 years to now become even busier with my career of teaching sewing and all the related topics.

I have written many magazine articles over the years about quilting and machine embroidery and had the opportunity to work with The Electric Quilt Company in developing their EQStitch embroidery digitizing software and beta tested the EQ8 software. With the release of EQ8, I continually write lessons on the EQ blog, and have a chapter in the EQ8 Designing More Quilts book, published in the fall of 2018. I travel internationally teaching quilt designing and digitizing machine embroidery.

    Importing Fabrics into EQ8

    With Yvonne Menear

    Half day class
    Apr 06, 2019, 9:00am - 12:00pm
    Beginner

    Beginner:

    A beginner student would be someone who is very new to using EQ8 software. Some beginners have never opened the software, while others have just dabbled. Beginner classes will be taught as if the students are all starting from scratch with EQ8. These slower-paced classes will help all students keep up with the lessons. Steps and terminology will be repeated often to help students connect concepts and skills together.
