Welcome to the only daytime quilt guild on the Eastside!
JaNita Clairmont started quilting in 1976 with the bicentennial resurgence in quilting and traditional crafts. Like so many of us, she started with a sampler quilt, then worked through log cabins, attic windows, and finally a mariner's compass. She joined a local guild and began teaching 17 years ago. A class with Judith Baker Montano was the spark that ignited her love for crazy quilting. While waiting for the kids at sports events, doctors offices, and wherever else they needed chauffeuring, JaNita developed her own "not quite crazy" method of crazy quilting, exploring embellishments and stitches and creating themed crazy quilts. JaNita works and teaches at QuiltWorks NW. She recently had a one-woman show at the LaConner Quilt & Textile Museum.
Overlake Hospital Honors ESQ
ESQ was selected as the Volunteer (Group) of the Month by Overlake Hospital in appreciation of the quilts they have received from us. The head of their Volunteer Services presented an beautiful engraved award to ESQ at our March 2016 meeting. She and two of her colleagues told stories of how much the recipients and their families appreciate the special hug of our donated quilts. It was an emotional and touching moment.
