EQ7 Giveaway! Look at this!!

Would you look at this! Those wonderful people at the Electric Quilt Company are announcing the release of the new (and exciting!) EQ7. They will start shipping on the 7th June.
AND NOT ONLY THAT! If you blog about the new software on your blog, to let everyone know about this wonderful happening, you might have the opportunity of not only winning a copy of EQ7 for yourself (oh yes, oh yes please!), but you will be given another copy to give away on your blog. Can you imagine? Ten, yes, TEN bloggers will be given this wonderful chance. Imagine the traffic to your blog. Imagine how green with envy all your blogging friends will be. I know I should be keeping this information to myself, but then I wouldn't have the chance of winning, and I do so want to win!!

Look at all the wonderful things that the new EQ7 can do -

Quilts, Blocks and now PHOTOS!
Digital cameras will become a quilter's best friend. EQ7 has dozens of ways to turn everyday photos into quilt art images. Or crop and edit scanned fabrics right in EQ7 in minutes. And that's just the start!

New Activation Policy
You'll never run out of EQ7 activations! Activation and deactivation is as easy as two clicks of the mouse. Install on as many computers as you like and quickly transfer activations from computer to computer. This new policy gives you complete freedom to manage your own activations — and no dongle to worry about!

  1. Exactly how do we sign up for this giveaway?

  2. I got an email direct from EQ. Perhaps if you go to the site, there will be more info there. When I went, they were still advertising EQ6, but they have since changed it.
