Join Us!  Welcome!

ESQ strives to perpetuate the art and craft of quiltmaking through fellowship, education and service.  It 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 75+ members from Nassau and Suffolk counties, New York City boroughs, and even a few out-of-state members. They range in quilting experience from “beginner” to “advanced.” ESQ welcomes all. Please join us!
