Our name suggests tradition, but our biennial quilt show is broad, and is neither juried nor judged. The efforts of each individual quilter, whether beginner or experienced – traditionalist, modern, or art quilter – are equally valued and enjoyed on their own merits.
Make a day of it and visit the fascinating Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park, immediately adjacent to the Craneway Pavilion, or take a stroll on the Bay Trail after you see the show.
East Bay Heritage Quilters is centered in the East Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area. We are a non-profit quilt guild founded in 1978. http://www.ebhq.org/
Our purposes are to:
- Continue and preserve the traditions of quilting
- Promote camaraderie among people in all aspects of quilting
- Contribute to the knowledge and appreciation of fine quilts
- Sponsor and support quilting activities through educational sessions and special events
- Serve the wider community through the Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project, providing more than 1000 quilts per year to a variety of charitable and disaster relief projects.
