Meeting/Program Information

The Haymarket Chapter of QU is located the furthest west of all the QU chapters, at the foot of Bull Run Mountain.Our chapter was formed in 2004 and has had extraordinary growth with a membership exceeding 150 in recent years. Our monthly meetings begin with demonstrations by members and social time.  A business meeting is held as quickly as possible to update everyone on the latest news and is followed by a program.  Often the highlight of the meeting is “Sew & Tell” where we get to view members’ latest projects.  We welcome all who are interested in quilting.

New members will appreciate our lovely name tags with a background of the  mountains we identify with based on our banner above.
They are easy to make and we love the creativity that have gone into them with use of colors, fabric patterns, embroidery, embellishments and more. Easy instructions available (here).

Our group meets every first Thursday of the month, Sep – Jun.
6:30 pm – Social time as well as free demos, sign up for activities, workshops or retreats,
7 pm – Official Meeting followed by a Program.

Retreats

Fall Retreat: November 9-12, 2017

Our November 9-12 Fall 2017 Retreat will be here before we know it. This year we are having sign-ups on our September 7 HQU meeting day at 2pm by email as before. We hope this will reduce the number of refunds and changes with roommates, since it’s closer to retreat time.

BUT it’s not too early to start our planning for that weekend date and deciding on roommates, so please do this. The approximate fee to HQU is $172 for Thursday noon- Sunday 2pm, 8 meals, sewing room. It’s $122 for Friday- Sunday, 5 meals, sewing room. You make your own room reservation after sign-ups on Sept. 7 with the room rate + tax being about $73 per night.

In August we will send more details. Looking forward to another wonderful weekend together. Contact: Pat Widener patwidener571@gmail.com
