Welcome to the Shenandoah Valley Quilters’ Guild. Our group currently averages about 100 members who meet monthly to share our common love and appreciation of quilting and fiber arts. Most meetings are highlighted by a lecture followed by a workshop on a variety of topics. At our monthly Show & Tell you will see a variety of styles of quilts from traditional to modern, hand and machine quilted, thread painting, bead work and many, many other techniques.We recently finished a beautiful raffle quilt pictured above. Many hands contributed to the creation of this hand pieced and hand appliqued treasure.

We are also gearing up for our 2016 quilt show, The Thread that Binds Us, which will celebrate our nearly 30 years of history as a guild.We would love to have you join us for a meeting or as a regular member! We learn so much from each other and I know that you have both inspiration and techniques to share that will be new to the group. Come join the fun. We meet on the third Saturday of each month at 9:30 am at Sunnyside Retirement Community in Rockingham, VA. Click here for directions.

Hope to see you soon!
