EBHQers have enjoyed four enjoyable months of meeting in person again at the Albany Church. We've worked on projects, swapped fabric, checked out each others quilts, chatted up a storm.
Now, it's time for a few changes, designed to enhance your Open Quilting experience.
First: Pre-registration is no longer required. Just pop in at the Albany church, wearing your mask, between 9 a.m to noon, on the second Tuesday and/or the third Saturday of every month.
Second: The EBHQ Lending Library has been moved to the second floor of the Albany church. Our quilting books can now be accessed during Open Quilting hours. You can sit in an airy, light-filled room to browse through books, or check them out for home use. Read about the Lending Library here.
Available at OQ for your use during each session: irons, ironing boards, cutting mats, extension cords for your sewing machine, large tables with risers for pinning quilts (if space allows), and design boards.
Scrap Swap: you may bring fabric of any size to give away. However, if it's not scooped up by someone else, you must take your fabric home. There is no space to store any more fabric in the closets. They are quite full--crammed actually.
To comply with EBHQ protocol:
