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 general meetings 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.  A brief business meeting starts 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.

August, 2017:  April Sproule   www.sproulestudios.com 


Saturday, August 26, 2017  Fabric Painting with Stencils 

Although stencils have been around for centuries, come and experience how utterly amazing the stenciling technique can be when you learn just a few professional tips and tricks. April will lead students through her basic stenciling techniques and quickly move on to the more advanced shading and composition options available using her Textile Design Stencils. Even those who think that they can’t draw or paint are able to create stunning work that can later be framed or quilted. All skill levels. 


Monday, August 28, 2017 - Upcycled Wearable Art with Stencils

Beginning with an already constructed garment, you will learn stenciling techniques, embroidery, and other embellishments that will completely transform a boring piece of clothing into something quite fabulous and fun! Dresses, T-shirts, and other garments are perfect media for upcycling.
