Does anyone know if EQ 7 is going to get an update. I still do not have EQ7. I have EQ4 which is not upgradable and because of that, I have been dragging my feet to go along with the newer versions. I saw EQ being sold for $153 and wondered if the price was A) wrong or B) lowered to reflect a sell off of the softwate because it is about to under go an update to EQ 8? Has anyone heard anything?

I have not heard about a new version. $153 is an excellent price for the full version. Why not email EQ and ask? I just bought it recently and do not plan to update as this is more quilt software than I need for as much quilting as I do.

EQ7 (which is WONDERFUL) has been out for two years, so I would think EQ8 is definitely in the works... but who knows when they will release it.

I finally broke down and purchased EQ7 through American Quilter's Society. I wish I had done this a long time ago... but hey, I have it now so I can play with designs

Yeah Warbler I just got EQ7 Yesterday. Have not loaded it on to my computer yet. Wonder if anyone knows how many times you can load it up. I have two lap tops.

You have to have internet service for the EQ7 so it can verify your subscription or whatever they call it. No dongle needed which is very nice. I think you can install it on 5 computers but only 2 can be active at one time. It's pretty nice how they have it set up and how easy it is to activate/deactivate, although I have one computer it is on.

I am so glad they made the installation so much more flexible in terms of multiple installations. I know that eventually I will have to get a new computer as mine is currently 10 years old.

That's terrific! I have found the learning curve not too steep. I had EQ4 but 6 months later EQ5 came out and I never upgraded. I also have EQ Dear Jane and that is based on EQ7, so the basic operations are the same. 7 is much more sophisticated than DJ and version 4.

Have you watched any of the videos?

They just added something new to it being able to add embroidery to quilts. That has me interested.

That's the new EQStitch. There is a special on it right now at 149. I would get it if I had an embroidery machine but alas not for me.
