The Man from Rio

I am sure many of you know of Rio Designs - it's a great online source of software and sundries for the computerate quilter. You might also have come across Lawrence at some of the quilt shows around the UK.
I have ordered several things over the years and the speed of delivery is brilliant.
Anyway, I have just received an email flyer from him about something called Stash, I haven't come across it before -  it's a CD that contains professional scans of all the new fabrics released over the last 6 months and some of the new ones due to be previewed at the trade show in Houston the end of October. They can be used in  EQ5, 6 or 7, or as a stand alone product.
I have tried recently to scan in my own swatches from online shops etc but it doesn't always work out at the right scale.
This product sounds pretty useful and Lawrence also sent a pdf doc listing all the ranges that come on the CD. If anyone would like a copy just email me.
I have no tie-in with this product or website, but can see its possibilities and thought some of you EQ users might be interested.


  1. Sounds like a really useful tool - if only I had EQ (any number!). Jxo

  2. I sure wish they had a mac version! It looks like a great add on.

  3. Interesting. Hadn't heard of EQ anything before so I checked it out. I think I may not be quite ready for this tool yet, but I'll bear it in mind for the future. Oh, and for Leanne, it said there was a Mac version of EQ7...
