A New Quilt Design Tool
But there's hope for us Mac peeps (and everybody else): The online sewing community Threadbias is developing a web-based quilt design tool, which will be accessible to anyone (on PC or Mac), will be constantly updated with the newest fabric designs, and will be available for a monthly subscription fee (so no need to shell out lots of cash up front for software). There will even be a "lite" free version available. I'm so excited about this!
But Threadbias needs our help to get it going. They're raising money on Kickstarter to fund the development of the program. If you're as excited as I am about having a good alternative to EQ, please click here to donate. And if you're not familiar with Kickstarter, it's a great way to help small businesses grow—your credit card isn't charged unless the company's Kickstarter goal is fully funded, and you almost always get something in return for your donation. So it's essentially like buying a company's products in advance. Everybody wins.
Good luck, Threadbias!
