Welcome! Our organization is open to everyone interested in quilting. Our members come from surrounding
states as well as Virginia. The Virginia Consortium of Quilters is a state-wide organization
which meets three to four times a year in various parts of the state. In even years we have a 4-day
Celebration of Quilting with classes and good fun.
Each day-long meeting is held in a different area of the state, hosted by a local quilt guild. We begin
with a three hour morning class, followed by a box lunch, a short business meeting, either an afternoon
speaker or a two hour continuation of the morning class, and, of course, Show & Tell. Vendors are
usually available for your shopping pleasure.
Members have a choice of several classes for each meeting. Many of our teachers and speakers are prominent
national quilters. Teachers may offer precut kits for sale, to maximize
the sewing/learning time in class. For those who wish to work on their own projects, Come Quilt With Me
is always available instead of a class.

Celebration...every two years, the years ending with even numbers
(2014, 2016, 2018, 2020), our state-wide quilting organization, Virginia
Consortium of Quilters (VCQ), has a grand weekend of quilting, eating, and just
plain fun! Workshops are available with teachers from across the country. Or,
you can choose to sew on your own in the 'Come Quilt with Me' room. The
workshops are wonderful, the food is wonderful, and the friendships you make and
re-establish each time, are priceless. Click here for more info.
Thinking of You
We have a VCQ "Thinking of You" block you can use to let members know you are thinking of them. Use it in time of illness, sorrow, to extend congratulations, or just to say "I'm thinking of you." The pattern is taken from an old friendship block and, if made in this 4" size, fits perfectly inside a card.
