I am so fortunate to be a member of the Country School Quilters. This is one of the best group of women that I've ever known. They are generous, kind and very talented. If you happen to be in the Richmond area in September I hope you will visit the Montpelier Center for the Arts to see our exhibit.

Country School Quilters exhibit shows the diversity of the group of quilters that meet at the Hanover Parks and Recreation Building adjacent to the Montpelier Center. The exhibit includes traditional and art quilts. Also included in the exhibit are lap quilts, which will be donated to the veterans at McGuire Medical Center, and challenge quilts, which members made using two challenge fabrics in addition to fabrics from the member’s collection.
Country School Quilters come together to enjoy, share and preserve the art of quilting. The monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday at the Hanover Parks & Recreation Building in Montpelier. The meeting begins at 7 PM, which includes a business meeting, guest recognition, a program and show & tell. The group has a Sit and Sew event held on the 2nd Friday and Saturday of each month. This is a time for individuals to come together to work on projects. Visitors are always welcome.
In January 2013, Channel 12 TV recognized the group with an Act of Kindness for the charitable donations to the various hospitals, Virginia Quilt Museum, Quilt Bingo/Relay for Life and several other charitable organizations.
Country School Quilters is a club sponsored by Hanover County Parks and Recreation
