What is EQ Academy?
EQ Academy (EQA) is a 4-day workshop in Perrysburg, Ohio for students wanting to learn to use Electric Quilt 8 (EQ8) software. It’s a great way to learn from expert teachers and get inspired by your peers! Don’t own EQ8? Get it now!
Where is the event held?
EQ Academy is held in the Bowling Green State University graduate building at the Levis Commons shopping center in Perrysburg, Ohio, just off I-475 and I-75. Conveniently located among restaurants, shopping, and walking distance from the hotels, this facility has been the perfect location for this event since the first EQA in 2015.
Perrysburg is in Northwest Ohio, just south of Toledo. The address for this event is 1655 N Wilkinson Way, Perrysburg, OH 43551 (view on map).
Where can I stay?
A block of rooms is available at the Home2 Suites by Hilton, which is right next to the classrooms (walking distance!). Once you enroll, you’ll receive all the information you need for booking your room.
What’s the best airport to fly into?
There are 2 airports that we recommend:
- Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) – 1 hour north of Perrysburg
- Toledo Express Airport (TOL) – 25 minutes northwest of Perrysburg
Is there a shuttle service from the airport?
Click the links below to see what each airport offers. Alternatively, you can use the EQA Message Forum (access given once enrolled) to try and find a travel buddy to help split costs of a taxi, rental car, etc.
Do I have to attend all 4 days?
No, you do not. Most students will attend Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday classes, but you may attend whichever days work with your schedule! (The Sunday class is specific to teachers wanting to learn tips for teaching EQ8 to others.)
I want to teach EQ8 so I plan to enroll in the Sunday class. Am I required to enroll in other classes, or can I just come for the Sunday class?
Nope! There are no prerequisites for the Sunday class, but if your budget and schedule allow, we’d love to have you join us for the other days, too!
What’s included with enrollment?
Each class is priced individually as a full-day ($120.00) or half-day ($60.00) class. Along with the class, you will also receive boxed lunches; daily coffee, tea, water, snacks; in-class assistance from EQ staff members; discounts on EQ product; take-home goodies and resources.
When is the next EQ Academy?
The next EQ Academy will be September 26-28, 2019 in Perrysburg, OH. At this time, we do not know which classes or teachers will be scheduled for this event.
