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.

Coming Soon

Time to Sign Up For Workshops!

January, 2020:  Kevin Kosbab



Saturday Workshop, Jan. 25: Alphablocks Quilt

Traditional pieced units—Half-Square Triangles, Drunkard’s Path, Triangle in a Square, and more—are the building blocks for this modern alphabet sampler.

Students may work towards the 26-block quilt (49" × 58") or a runner/banner spelling out a word or name. Full-color pattern ($16, payable in class) contains detailed cutting and piecing instructions for all 26 letters, complete alphabet quilt, and suggestions for runners or banners.

We’ll cover all the main piecing techniques in the workshop so you’ll be able to finish the remaining blocks confidently. We’ll also look at color choices to create the translucent effects seen in the sample quilt. 

To sign up, click here.

Monday Workshop, January 27: Atomic Quilting - CANCELLED

Silk and Salvage - EBHQ members,
Sue Fox and Julia McLeod - enjoyed receiving multiple ribbons for their work at the recent QUILT San Francisco show. 'Sari Not Sari', designed and pieced by Julia and quilted by Sue, won Best of Show! This quilt was made from thrifted silk neckties, a silk sari found on the 'Free Table' at a SFQG meeting, and gold squares cut from a vintage Japanese obi. Sue's quilting motifs were inspired by Mehndi designs used to create henna body art.

In the last year over 1400 of our quilts have been distributed to children,teens, and others in need of comfort. Many thanks to everyone involved in these efforts!  For more information on EBHQ's Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project, click here.
