ESQ strives to perpetuate the art and craft of quiltmaking through fellowship, education and service.

ESQ was founded in 2001 when a group of individuals who met in an adult education class wished to take their quilting journey further. From this small group, Evening Star Quilters now has 100 plus members from Nassau and Suffolk counties as well as the NYC boroughs. They range in quilting experience from “beginner” to “advanced.”

ESQ welcomes all. Please join us!

Next Workshop: August 6, 2016

Starts at 10 am @ The Mineola Community Center. The cost is $30.

Sandra Dorrbecker presents the workshop LEARN WHAT TO DO WITH THOSE EMBELLISHMENTS!. Don’t just let all those embellishments take up space in your drawer in your sewing room (if you’re lucky enough to have a sewing room). Bring ribbon, decorative threads, lace, beads, buttons etc. and LEARN WHAT TO DO WITH THEM! Bring stuff, trade stuff and learn all kinds of stuff. Interested?
