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.

We welcome all those interested in joining our group, simply download and fill out the Membership Form (PDF format) and bring it to our welcome table at your first meeting, or simply come for a visit.

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,
