Follow us on Facebook to learn what is happening in the guild.
The Tavern Quilt Guild was established in 1996 by Anna Holland and several local quilting friends under the sponsorship of the RHHT Foundation Inc. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month at 10:00 AM in the Transportation Museum at the Historic Heathsville Tavern Square. Programs consist of speakers on all aspects of quilting, and workshops to learn new skills or reinforce those we already know.
To promote and preserve the art of quilting through the education of ourselves and the public; remembering our heritage through our relationship with the Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett's Tavern.
We hold a quilt show and auction every other year; we host a quilters retreat annually; we have a large library of books and DVDs on quilting; we have a monthly newsletter; we participate with the other Tavern guilds in educational programs at the Tavern, and we demonstrate our quilting art every opportunity to educate the public.
