The Virginia Consortium of Quilters is a state-wide organization of quilters which meets three to four times a year in various parts of the state.
We are a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote quilting, provide community service and document quilting in Virginia. Our organization
is open to everyone interested in quilting, and members come from surrounding states as well as Virginia. At each quarterly meeting held in March, May,
August and November we have a choice of 4-5 workshops, lunch, and a short business meeting. In even numbered years we have a 4-day "Celebration of Quilting"
retreat with national teachers at Smith Mountain Lake 4-H Center. Come join us to meet new quilting friends, learn new techniques and see the beautiful
countryside of Virginia.
The Virginia Quilt Museum was founded in 1995 by VCQ members. It grew out of VCQ's documentation project of the early 1990's, which also led to publication of our book, Quilts of Virginia, 1607 - 1899.
