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.

January, 2019:  Deborah Boschert

Saturday, January 26 - Personal Symbols for Art Quilt Collages
 
What symbols and personal themes will you incorporate into your small art quilt collages? Houses, leaves, bowls, ladders? Deborah will guide you through exploring and creating shapes and symbols that have personal meaning. Create 5×7 fabric collages highlighting personal symbols using composition templates and inspiring fabrics. Embellish with machine and hand stitching. Learn simple finishing techniques and mount your art quilt collage on mats ready for framing.
  
Monday, January 28 Techniques with Paint and Ink

Simple techniques and supplies, stupendous results!  Cut freezer paper stencils, create foam stamps, print with found objects and make marks with pen and ink!  We'll talk about shapes, pattern, repetition and color.  Students will leave with a beautiful stash of original fabrics ready to be used in art quilts, collage or mixed media.

Appropriate for all levels.
