My name is Sheila Williams. I am a Computer and Quilting Software Consultant.
I have been quilting for a very long time.
I learned to use the computer while I was in the United States Marine Corps.
I started my Computer Consulting Business once I retired from the Marine Corps.
While attending a Quilting Class at Palomar College, Bonnie Tinling, the instructor, told the class we were going to learn to use graph paper to make templates. Well, while in the Marine Corps I was a Combat Support Chief and spent my days with graph paper loading ships, rail, buses, and trucks. There was no way I was going to spend my off duty time looking at more graph paper. So, I asked Bonnie if there was a computer program that would make the templates for me. I was not happy with her reply. Something about accuracy and the computer. I was determined to find a program. It took me two months but I found a program at the time called “Quilters Design Studio” now it is known as “QuiltSoft”. That was the start of a great journey.
From there I started teaching my friends how to use the software programs that they had purchased.
Some of them had programs that had never left the original box!
I called or wrote letters to all of the program companies I had learned about in my search and asked if I could teach their software programs.
They were all very nice and said yes, in writing.
I now conduct Lectures, Workshops,Demos and Classes in the Southern California Area.
My husband tells his friends “She has a laptop and will travel”. Oh well, he thinks it is funny. But I am having a ball.
In my spare time I beta test software programs for software companies. I have a number of clients that I help keep their computers up and running.
I also consult with people that are in the process of setting up home base businesses to help them select the right equipment for their home offices.
As I created this Web Site I decided to concentrate on locating all the information I could find on the programs so that you will have a central location to find out about the quilting software programs. There are a number of sites that review the software so you will find links to those sites here also.
In my classes, workshops, demos and lectures I always give a list of web sites that people can go and read about the different software programs on the market.
I will include all that information here on this site, along with some other interesting information.
You will also notice that I sell all of the quilting software programs that are available.
I am only beginning to create this site so make a bookmark and visit often.
Thank you for stopping by and please come back again soon.
