In 2017, a dream was born to create a place to be able to support more machine quilters using 23 years of experience mentoring, educating and supporting customers. It took another 2 years to learn the technology and to get the courage to put myself out there to build this dream!
The first step was to find the right platform and focus to see it this would work - the IQ Summit was created specifically to educate and support Intelliquilter owners in increasing their knowledge and confidence in using their systems. Our first live webinar was held in January 2020 and has grown amazingly fast with great members participating LIVE plus using the replays to hone their skills. There is a large amount of content in this now and still grows monthly with new topics.
This was always the first part of the 'dream' and as such a subsidiary of Machine Quilting Academy.
The next step was to build the Academy to encompass ALL machine quilters' needs and desires. Providing support on using any brand and size of machine plus learning new skills, tips and tricks, understanding tools as well as business advice and marketing.
