Quilters started getting together regularly in Charlottesville over 35 years ago, in 1978. In 1987, there were so many quilters in the area that an area guild was formed. There are now four local groups that meet regularly in the area. They are:
- Crozet Quilters--meet second and fourth Mondays at Tabor Presbyterian Church, on Tabor Street in Crozet, 10:00 am to Noon.
