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 has 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,

Community Service

Haymarket QU members donate community service projects for a number of community organizations throughout the year.  Members use Community Service provided fabrics as well as their own fabrics and work on projects large and small.  We vary our projects to meet the needs of our community.  This includes supporting local hospitals, nursing homes, veterans and military organizations, and other non-profit groups.  Our 2016-2017 focus was on Quilts of Honor and we completed 20 quilts to donate to veterans and members of the military.  Members should check out the Community Service table at each meeting for more information.
