Made Easy Books by Sharla Hicks
This book series is no longer available.
Sharla Hicks is now publishing her How-To's and Reviews for quilting software
"The Illustrated Tour ... has become my Quick Reference Guide. I find
it clear, concise and easy to follow. It is a great computer companion."
Williams, quilter, Rosemead, California
"Sharla Hicks is an accomplished quilter who also knows her way around
computers. I recommend her books to all levels. The clear, step-by-step instruction
will bring a beginner up to speed; at the same time, the more advanced user will
learn some nifty tricks about the programs. Sharla has written an indispensable
series for computer quilting."
Cooksey, an award winning quilter, artist and graphic designer, Irvine, California
"A year ago, I was a total computer dummy when Sharla asked me to
get involved in being a computer quilting docent for the Laguna Art Museum's Amish
quilt exhibit. I never would have believed that I could learn so much in such
a short time. Although I find most computer manuals are written in a foreign tongue,
one trip through Sharla's manual and I felt I had a good grasp on the program.
It is easy to read, full of information and a concise path to taking command of
the program. I now enjoy being in front of a computer and the confidence I gained
from her tutelage has spilled over into all computing areas."
Mann, a nationally known quilt designer and teacher, Lake Forest, California
