Art Quilters Unlimited (AQU) is a group of fiber art enthusiasts who share and support
exploration of textile media and techniques that depart from traditional quilting patterns
and methods. AQU meetings include demonstrations or presentations of techniques
such as eco-printing (using leaves and plants to color silk) and wet felting or feature
regional fiber artists talking about their inspirations and processes. Each meeting ends
with a “show and tell” where members reveal their recent creations.
AQU meetings are held the 2nd Saturday of the month in the music room of St. Hilary’s
Episcopal Church at 5011 McGregor Blvd, Ft. Myers, FL.
