Speakers

EBHQ educational sessions are held the last Monday of the month, excluding July and December. Our May session 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.  Brief announcements start at 7:30 p.m., followed by a featured speaker from the quilting world. Guest admission is $5.   Map for Educational Sessions

The process of creating an original composition inspired by an existing artistic vision is both challenging and rewarding. Heather will share her methods and her resulting art quilts.
