Speakers

EBHQ general meetings are held the last Monday of the month, excluding July and December. Our May meeting is held the next-to-last Monday because of Memorial Day. We start to gather at 6:30 to greet one another, view displayed quilts, find pamphlets describing regional quilting events, or check out books from our extensive library.  A brief business meeting starts at 7:30 p.m., followed by a featured speaker from the quilting world. Guest admission is $5.   Map for Educational Sessions

Roberta Horton - "Quiltmaker/Visual Gardener"

Roberta’s stunning lecture and slides, “Quiltmaker/Visual Gardener” is certain to please. For more than 40 years the flowers that Roberta dealt with were printed on her quilting fabric. No need to plant, fertilize, or prune. See how her travels to distant landscapes and gardens influenced her use of color and thoughts about design. Learn how to see, and not just look, with your eyes. Visit some of the gardens and places and see the quilts that resulted. Also have a peek into Roberta’s garden….

Please join us for a fun evening with our very own Roberta Horton.

This is not a lecture about art principles, but rather about simple, easy to apply principles that will take the fear factor out of color choices. This lecture includes techniques to help stretch your personal "comfort zone."
