About High Country Quilters

We are a group of quilters who meet each month to share our love of the craft. Our meetings generally include a quilting-related program as well as an opportunity for our members to show us the quilting projects they have been working on. In October of each year we hold a quilt show for the display and sale of quilts completed by our members as well any other handmade items our members would like to sell. At the quilt show we raffle off a large quilt that has been created by one of our experienced members with contributions from all members.

We support various charity activities. Every year we send handmade quilts to a military hospital in Germany so that wounded soldiers will have a warm quilt to comfort them on their trip back to the US. Last year several were forwarded from there on to a hospital in Afghanistan. This year our goal is to send 100 quilts to our servicemen and women.

Please join us on the third Thursday of the month at 6:30 pm at the First Methodist Church in Waynesville NC. All quilters are welcome from newbies to experienced.
