KQP began with one teacher, fourteen fourth graders, two volunteers, and four sewing machines pulled
from quilters' closets. The project grew instantly, and with it our need for additional funding and sewing
machines. Up came the idea to start a not-for-profit organization which would enable us to serve more
students. EduQuilters became official in 2005, adding services and workshops as the requests came in.
Hundreds of students have learned to quilt with EduQuilter volunteers in and out of school classrooms.
Summer quilt camp, now in its twelfth year, is a tradition. Organizations such as 4-H, Jr. Womens Club,
and Girl Scouts have quilt projects which are part of KQP.
Designed for our volunteers, these videos replace the annual training for camp volunteers. Our intent is to provide valuable information and to answer questions. To prepare for camp, begin with Using the Sewing Machine and follow with the next three, which are sequential, ending with "the secret." Click on the images below to view each video.
