Since the first Tuesday in January is New Year’s Day, our Business Meeting will be on January 8.
This past weekend we again participated in the Civil War Weekend at Sky Meadows State Park. The weekend is part of the park’s Fall Farm Festival and is designed to illustrate what life was like on Virginia farms during the Civil War. Once again we dealt with unsettled weather: last year snow on Saturday, this year the approach of Hurricane Sandy. Since we were set up in the old wash house with a fireplace, we were warm and cozy in spite of the weather. On Sunday afternoon Tim Seaman moved his hammer dulcimer into the wash house with us and played lovely concert for FCQ volunteers and park visitors.
Occasional showers on Sunday caused us to keep quilts inside, but on Saturday we were able to display them outside. We hope you enjoy the slide show.
Fauquier County Quilters is a guild of quilters from Fauquier County Virginia and the surrounding area. Our purpose is to share our time, talents, and experience to promote the love of quilting and to support individual members in their quilting projects. Meeting time and place below.
