Next session for IQ summit on 23 May 2021

It sure has been a busy time here in the studio! I’m very pleased to be home again after my trip to Western Australia visiting some of the most wonderful customers – all with Intelliquilter systems on their longarm machines. 

It was an early start for me to help Tonia with her last live session on Creating Pantos from Block designs but I managed to get there! Did you enjoy learning how to do this and have you created some of your own from existing block patterns on your IQ? 

Let us know by posting in the IQ Summit Facebook Group so you can keep inspiring other owners. 

So next up is a reminder of our next class with me this time.  

Exploring Computer Art Patterns Catalog
This is truly an exciting catalog to use to create so many designs! Have you tried it and come up with your own variations? Join Tracey in exploring how to use this catalog of patterns. From simple to more complex. You will be amazed at what you can create on your own!

THE JOURNEY TO HERE…
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.

We are working on reformatting the LIVE sessions in the IQ Summit, into smaller lessons inside a course for each topic. These are available to Gold Members in the Academy inside the membership area OR are available for individual purchase.

Many are already done for you to access.

Happy designing and quilting!

IQ maintenance & troubleshooting

Merry Christmas – Happy holidays to all! 

Tomorrow is the final LIVE webinar session for 2020 and I’m squeezing this in at the last moment between customer quilts, harvesting our crops and preparing for multiple family celebrations. 

Many, many times I see IQ owners struggling with common issues and frightened to look further into the mechanics of their system and how it works and how it can be adjusted by yourself to get that perfect stitch out. When it is first setup by your dealer it is perfect – UNTIL is is not!

Things can change simply with accidental bumps, catching of cables, knocking your machine off its tracks, too much vibration of your longarm machine, changing in the floor that your machine sits on, bolts getting loose on your table and so many things.

We all know we have to maintain our longarm machines and regularly service them to keep them running in top condition and therefore we also need to service our IQ systems. Maintenance and troubleshooting by the person that runs the machine is the BEST thing you can do as you will know when something is awry.

Don’t be frightened to both be really observant and understand how to communicate what you see and hear, clearly and concisely. This will then result in getting things working again much quicker. As always, document what you have checked, observed & heard in a support ticket if the problem persists. 

All of what we will discuss is available in IQPedia or support documents at www.intelliquilter.com. I’ve also done/doing some videos so you can visually watch me adjust motors and perform some tests.  

So next up is a reminder of our next class with Tracey Browning
