Join Us

Share your passion with a group that has been sharing the art of

quilting for nearly 85 years.

Genesee Valley Quilt Club (GVQC) offers quilters a place to learn, grow, and serve through their love of quilting. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the club is meeting virtually each month via Zoom. See meeting announcement in the sidebar. Prior to COVID, our in-person monthly meetings offered: Activities: block of the month, fat quarter drawing, Comfort Quilt, opportunity to sign up for workshops. A large lending library. Show and Tell Program, usually with a special speaker who shares quilting wisdom, tips, a trunk show, and/or quilting inspiration. Sometimes after meeting mini-workshops. The club, located in Rochester, NY, meets monthly September through June and draws members from the Finger Lakes region and even as far away as Buffalo, Corning, and Oswego, NY. The membership represents a wide range of quilting skills from beginner to advanced, all types of quilting and interests, including traditional, contemporary, modern and art, both hand and machine quilting. Because of the diversity of quilting interests, Show and Tell and the parade of Comfort Quilts (turned in for donation) are always a delight and an inspiration. Although a few of the members have been recognized in prestigious juried national quilt shows, all of the members enjoy learning and sharing their love of quilting together. GVQC offers an opportunity to connect with member quilters through an active (member only) Yahoo Group and to keep up with club news through the monthly (Sept - June) publication, Patchword newsletter. GVQC has a long tradition of serving the community, including making and donating hundreds of quilts a year through Love and Comfort Quilts to area organizations to give to individuals and families in need. New members are always welcome. If you are not sure you want to join, come for a visit. We would love to meet you. More about our meetings. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
