The Modern Quilt Guild is organizing weekly content to be delivered to its members in the form of 2 webinars and a PDF download each week in what they are calling the #MQGKeepCalmandSewOn series. On Thursday from 1-2pm Central, I will be doing a live webinar about installing and using Inkscape, a free and open source professional vector graphic editor for Linux, Windows, and macOS.
Vector images can be exported to other programs or sent to a graphic designer, magazine editor, etc. in high resolution, loss-less file formats. Inkscape can export PNG images or the entire file can be saved in a PDF or EPS file format. I’ll be going through basic setup, how to use the standard tools, and important to know details for quilters like how to import and use fabric swatches.
Do you have any questions about Inkscape? Be sure to leave them as a comment below and I’ll do my best to address your questions!
To register for this week’s webinar, sign into your MQG account and visit the Events page. If you can’t make it to the live share, it will be recorded and uploaded to the MQG site (along with an additional PDF I created with exercises!).
UPDATE: The webinar is now available on the MQG website. Be sure to log in and then visit: https://community.themodernquiltguild.com/resources/quilt-pattern-design-inkscape
