Due to COVID guidelines and restrictions for meetings of large groups, our much enjoyed and well-attended Workshops, where we had a chance to learn new techniques from well-knows instructors and examine their work up close, have been canceled for the foreseeable future. However, we are looking into the possibility of offering workshops online.
Location of classes
Unless notified differently, workshops run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and are located at:
Albany United Methodist Church map 980 Stannage Avenue Albany, California
The church is on the corner of Marin and Stannage Avenue, two blocks from San Pablo Avenue. Entrance to the workshop room is on Stannage Ave., on right side of the building. Go through the wooden gate to the clear glass doors.
Supply lists are available through the links in the workshop descriptions listed on the workshop page.
If you need a supply list mailed to you, please include a self addressed, stamped envelope with your registration or mailing address at Workshop Policy .
If you have any question about a listed supply, other participants may too, so please email the workshop chair at EBHQWorkshops@gmail.com.
We have the following on-site, so you don't need to bring them, even if they appear on a supply list:
irons and ironing boards
design boards for all (plan to bring our own so you can take home your unsewn quilt)
power strips and extension cords
plastic covering for all the tables
Workshops begin promptly at 9 am
Workshop space is open by 8:30 am so that you can set up and be ready at the start of the workshop.
Lunch and Refreshments: EBHQ provides coffee and tea at the workshop. There is a kitchen with refrigerator and microwave for storing and heating lunches. Typically, many enjoy eating at a communal table with the teacher when we break for lunch. There are several nearby restaurants for take out and there will be menus available at the workshop so you can choose and order ahead if you like.
Workshops have gone green, so please bring your own covered cup or mug (so as not to spill on your neighbor's work), plate and any utensils you may need for lunch and breaks.
Workshops end at 4 pm. Please note that there is no janitorial service for the workshop space, so everyone needs to clean up after themselves and time will be allocated as needed. Bringing a small bag that you can tape to the table can help keep the scraps under control and make clean up easier!
