VCQ Quarterly Meeting

Our March quarterly meeting was held this past Saturday in Kilmarnock, a town on the Northern Neck of Virginia.  VCQ meetings are hosted by local guilds and we travel all over the state.  It's been a great way to see parts of Virginia that I might not travel to otherwise.  Kilmarnock was a very welcoming town.  They had a welcome message on their town sign board, one local guild member hosted an afternoon tea at her home on Friday afternoon, and local merchants featured items that would appeal to quilters.
At this meeting we had 4 workshops plus a Come Quilt with Me group where people brought their own projects to work on.  The classes included chenille rug making, redwork, a Civil War cot quilt, and our new community service project, which is making comfort cushions for mastectomy patients.

Everyone had a great time and is eagerly anticipating our next event, our biannual Celebration, which is a 4-day retreat at the end of April at the beautiful Smith Mountain Lake 4-H center.  There are 9 teachers scheduled for a variety of workshops and a full roster of participants.  Looking forward to the fun and frivolity in store from the planning committee!
