Cotton Patch Quilters

The Cotton Patch Quilters were founded in 1985 with about a dozen members. Today membership numbers around one hundred. CPQ is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to promote interest in quilting among its members and the community, provide educational opportunities for its members, preserve the continuation of the art of quilting, and contribute to the community through charitable and service projects.

The Cotton Patch Quilters serve the community by making quilts and other items for groups and organizations such as Project Safe, Grandview Nursing Home, animal shelters, premature babies at Athens Regional Medical Center and many others. They promote awareness of quilting by demonstrating the art at local festivals, in the schools and at the Lyndon House Arts Center. CPQ provides opportunities for members by hosting local, regional and national teachers for lectures and workshops. The biennial quilt show showcases the work of members and brings approximately 1000 visitors to the show.

Cotton Patch Quilters meet the second Tuesday of the month at 7pm at the Lyndon House. Please visit their website for more information: cpquilters.org.
