The ECHOS program is offered to Mountain Top Quilters members during the afternoon following the general meeting. Instruction in different techniques or information on how to do various projects is presented. The classes are usually taught by an MTQG member free of charge or for a nominal fee to cover the cost of supplies incurred by the instructor.

Upcoming E.C.H.O.S. Workshops:


Do you document your quilts? Have you ever thought about participating in the Arizona Quilt Documentation Project? Maybe you just want an easy way to keep track of your finished projects, project ideas, and UFOs? Carol Hood will join us on September 16 to discuss the Heritage Quilt Study Group of Sharlot Hall Museum, which has documented almost 800 quilts in our community over the years, as well as the museum’s quilt collection. Quilts do not have to be vintage; modern, contemporary and art quilts are included. Carol is a longtime member of the group, and a former member of MTQG. She will explain reasons to document your quilts and what is involved in the process. Please join us for ECHOS in the Fellowship Hall immediately after the regular meeting in September to share information, ask questions, and receive examples of a few different methods of documenting your quilts, and keeping project ideas organized.

You do not need to sign up for demonstrations, just come by, watch, and ask questions.

ATTENTION: All you very clever MTQG quilters. I know many of have cute – novel – quirky or innovative items that you could share with us at an ECHOS class. Contact Marie Willison to schedule a class.

Remember, there are no fees for these classes –they are presented to us by the skillful members of our own Guild. So just come and get lots of new ideas and learn some interesting tips and quilting skills.

ECHOS is a Mountain Top Quilters Guild activity for and by our members.
