Apple has announced that the Fall 2018 update to Mojave macOS 10.14 will be the last macOS that will run 32-bit applications. The Electric Quilt Company suggests that you check all your software applications (not just EQ software) to see which ones would be affected.

We are currently working on converting Electric Quilt 8 (EQ8) from a 32-bit application to a 64-bit application. This conversion for EQ8 will take months to complete, but will be available before Apple’s tentative Fall 2019 deadline of the macOS 10.15 release. You will be notified of the free update for EQ8 when available.

We will not be converting EQ7 or EQ Mini to 64-bit, however. If you would like to continue using either of these products, then we suggest that you maintain the macOS that currently works for you. (EQ7 and EQ Mini should still be compatible with the Fall 2018 release of Mojave macOS 10.14. Apple has stated that support for Mojave will continue through 2020.) Of course we would love it if you upgraded to EQ8. Owners of these EQ products are eligible to upgrade to EQ8 at a discounted price. We encourage you to upgrade to EQ8 as soon as possible.

Again, this only affects Mac owners. At this time, Windows has not announced any plans to require 64-bit applications.
