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.
