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.

Saturday, March 23- Making Quilts Using Unconventional Materials 

Expand your palette as you discover how fun and easy it is to incorporate unconventional materials into your Art quilts. Raid your home for unexpected stashes of fibers and material that can be stitched into and onto your quilts by machine or hand using piecing, applique, cutwork, couching, and embellishment. Get ready to innovate, captivate, and create using unconventional materials!! 



Monday, March 25- Free-Motion Fillers & Fun Workshop 

Do you love the look of negative space but don’t know how to quilt it? In this workshop, Mel will share her favorite mark-free, quilting motifs. Whether your style is modern, traditional, art, or other, you’ll explore how simple changes to each of the designs will yield all new filler designs! This is a low-stress and super fun workshop that is perfect for quilters who are new to free-motion quilting, as well as those looking to add new designs to their quilting repertoire. You’ll leave new design ideas, tips and tricks for free-motion quilting success, and the confidence to add beautiful, quilted texture to your quilt tops!
