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.

Current news is on our blog or on Facebook.

Saturday, February 23Improvisational Piecing & Crazy Patchwork Recipes


We all have favorite recipes that we use over and over again, varying them depending on what’s in the cupboard… Our cupboards just happen to be full of silk, linen, wool and other unusual quilting materials. In this one-day class, we’ll share some of our favorite Piecing Recipes, inspired by traditional block styles that have morphed into modern variations, and that seem to work particularly well for our "Not Cotton" fabrics.


 Monday, February 25Basics for Working with Silks in Quilts

Do you like the look of silk in quilts but feel nervous about using it? We know that EBHQ-ers have all kinds of silks in their stashes— from neckties to imported yardage to Mulberry sample packs to hand painted scarves & garments of all  sorts… vintage, new or recycled— bring it on!

We’ll share all our secrets for successfully working silks into our own quilts. We tackle the troublesome stuff— slippery,   stretchy, fraying, flimsy— you name it. Bring your dreamiest & your scariest fabric, we’ll have strategies for it. The day   will be full of tips, tricks and techniques along with practical examples and exercises. You’ll take home solutions and the beginnings of a silk project you can finish. (Class kit fee: $20.)
