James River Heritage Quilters

James River Heritage Quilters meets on the first Wednesday of the month 6:30-8:30 p.m. We meet at Bon Air Christian Church located at Buford Rd. and Haven in Bon Air which is in North Chesterfield County. We are a group of about thirty members who are friendly and creative individuals with varying skills levels. We support ASK which is a foundation for children with cancer, The Chesterfield Christmas Mother, and TLC a group that provides clothing for children in Appalachia. We participate in Victorian Days in Old Bon Air as combined fundraiser and communtiy outreach. We share a love of the art of quilting and learn by sharing ideas as well as classes.


Piecemakers, the fifth of the seven original chapters of the RQG, was organized in 1985. Our members' expertise ranges from beginners to advanced, and members are always willing to share their ideas and knowledge with each other. Anyone interested in quilts and quilt making is invited to join our chapter. We meet the second Wednesday of each month at New Bethesda Baptist Church, located at 9019 New Bethesda Rd, Mechansville, VA 23116. A social time at 9:30 a.m. is followed by the business meeting and program at 10:00. The meetings offer lectures, demonstrations, workshops, and quilting-related programs. As interest in quilting has grown, so has the membership of the RQG. The Guild holds a fall seminar and spring annual meeting each year, and produces a quilt show every three years. Quilting has a unique place in our country's heritage. We are proud to carry on the tradition and to pass it on to a new generation.

Hospitality Chapter

Hospitality  Chapter meets on the first Wednesday of each month, excepting July, at the Community of Grace Church at 2240 Cranbeck Road. This is just off Huguenot Road, just south of the Robious Rd. intersection. Social time is at 9:30 a.m. and the business meeting and program begins at 10 a.m. We are the oldest chapter of the Guild and the largest, with over 100 members. The chapter supports a number of charities by donating quilts and we ask that each member make and donate at least one quilt each year. We have begun a monthly "retreat" where members and non-members can get together to sew on their projects, share tips and information, and generally get to know each other better. We have participated with other chapters in supporting the Guild Quilt Shows. 

Bits and Pieces

Bits and Pieces Chapter meets once a month on the second Tuesday at 7:00pm at Laurel Hill United Methodist Church in Varina.  Every month we enjoy show and tell, learning new techniques and patterns during the programs, and just spending time together with fellow quilters.  We participate in several charity projects to include making pillowcases for troubled youth that have been admitted to the Virginia Treatment Center and fleece blanket sets for the Massey Cancer Center. Members also have the opportunity to meet once a month (typically on the third Saturday of the month) at the Varina Ruritan located on Recreation Rd to work on UFO's, special projects, etc.

Crazy Quilters

Crazy Quilters Chapter meets in Mechanicsville Presbyterian Church, 7339 Atlee Road (corner of Atlee and Signal hill Rd) at 7:00 p.m. the first Tues of each month. We welcome beginning, intermediate, or accomplished quilters and those interested in fiber art to join us. Retreats are held the weekend of the second Saturday of each month -- Thursday, Friday, and Saturday -- at the church. We begin each day by 9:00 am and end by mutual agreement of those attending.  Crazy Quilters members make and donate many quilts to Hanover Safe Place and the MCV Psychiatric unit.  We also make and donate many cat and dog beds, primarily to the Hanover County Animal Control and Shelter, and occasionally to other animal rescue facilities.
