Celebrating 10 years of Quilting -- October 2013

Welcome to our website!

ESQ is a QUILTING GUILD meeting on the Eastside of King county for ALL Levels of Quilters!

If you live in anywhere on the Eastside of Seattle, like Bothell, Clyde Hill, Duvall, Newcastle, Issaquah, Sammamish, Redmond, Kirkland, North Bend, Snoqualmie, Woodinville, Renton, Bellevue, Eastgate, Beaux Arts, Medina, Monroe, and Seattle, then you are invited to join Eastside Quilters. Our meeting location is easy to get to from any place in the greater Seattle area as it is adjacent to I-90 just east of 405.


ESQ meets in Bellevue, Washington. There are two meeting times to choose from:

  1. Mornings: THIRD Thur. of each month at 10 a.m.
    (optional afternoon Stay and Sew class may follow)
    (social lunch at Crossroads Mall often follows)
  2. Evenings: Third Wed. of each month at 7 p.m. in Downstairs Fellowship Hall (This is a Change to Evening Meeting of both Place and Date)
Visitors are always welcome at either meeting. We do however, charge $5 per visitor if they come when we have a paid speaker. Non-members taking one of our classes will pay an additional $10 fee.

The dates and time for all our meetings are listed on the right-hand side of this page. Come with a friend or two and bring your newest quilt creation for Show & Tell or an old one that we have not seen and meet others who share your love for quilting!!!
