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

Denise Labadie Snell - Stone Portraits


Denise Labadie Snell creates art quilt portraits of luminescent old souls—megalithic stones and monoliths (and newer – though still centuries old – monastic ruins, passageways, and portals). Using her almost three decade “stone” art quilt portfolio as a guide, Denise will discuss her approach to creating an internationally-recognized body of work that specifically focuses on these ageless structures, visually telling their remarkable stories, developing a unique and memorable style, melding art and craftsmanship to catalyze creative and intuitive expression, and delivering “artistic soulfulness”.

Note: Her work will be featured at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles June 5 - July 14, 2019

No educational session in July - have a nice vacation.
