About Us

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.

How To Join

Annual membership is $30. Dues are for the calendar year: January 1 through December 31. There are no pro-rated dues.

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. Click here to view directions.
