Tuesday Preview - CQT Episode # 50

This week on the podcast we have The Quilt Pattern Magazine's EQ7 expert Reeze Hanson on the show. She'll break down the myths of EQ7 being hard or unattainable for many by giving us her 5 tips for getting started and avoiding the overwhelm that has caused some quilters to try it out and then set it aside and give up. 

If you own EQ software, but have never used it, she'll have you inspired to get educated and give it another try. And if you don't own it, then send me your Quilter's corner story so you have a chance to win a full EQ7 software on July 3rd. You don't want to miss out!
