Welcome 

Come join our guild. Quilters of all ages and interests flourish in EBHQ's nourishing atmosphere during monthly Educational Sessions and daytime Workshops featuring outstanding teachers from the quilting world. Our educational sessions are held the last Monday evening of the month, excluding July and December. May is the next-to-last Monday because of Memorial Day. Starting at 6:30 p.m. we visit, view displayed quilts, or choose books from our extensive library.  Brief announcements start at 7:30, followed by our featured speaker. Guest admission is $5.   Map for Educational Sessions

Each month we celebrate quilting together at Drop-In sewing days and community service activities.  Hover over the Home tab in the Navigation Bar to find further information about our guild.

January, 2018:  Katie Pasquini Masopust  


Saturday, January 27 and Monday, January 29 - From Watercolor to Quilt

Spend 2 days with the fabulous Katie Pasquini Masopust as she guides you through the process of making an art quilt based on a watercolor painting that you’ll create in class—no worries!—no painting experience needed!

Spend the first day of this 2-day workshop having fun creating abstract watercolor paintings under Katie's expert guidance using her proven painting techniques. On the second day, you'll select your favorite painting and hone in on the most dynamic part to recreate the look in fabric. During the workshop you'll select fabric, create templates, learn Katie's construction techniques, and take home your masterpiece to sew and finish.
