You are invited to visit the last surviving 1700's structure of its kind in Virginia's Northern Neck!

The story of this tavern and its relationship to the development of Northumberland County and Virginia's Northern Neck reflects what happened in countless court house villages throughout Virginia and the nation.

Follow us on Facebook to learn what is happening in the guild.

The Tavern Quilt Guild was established in 1996 by Anna Holland and several local quilting friends under the sponsorship of the RHHT Foundation Inc. Meetings are held the first Tuesday of every month at 10:00 am in the Tavern Meeting Building, part of the RHHT Foundation, center of the Historic Heathsville Tavern Square. Programs consist of speakers on all aspects of quilting, and workshops to learn new skills or reinforce those we already know.

Our Mission

To promote and preserve the art of quilting through the education of ourselves and the public; remembering our heritage through our relationship with the Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett's Tavern.

We hold a quilt show and sale every other year; we host a quilters retreat annually; we have a large library of books and DVDs on quilting; we have a monthly newsletter; we participate with the other Tavern guilds in educational programs at the Tavern, and we demonstrate our quilting art every opportunity to educate the public.

Save the Date!

POSTPONED: Per federal and state guidance and directive, the Tavern in Heathsville is closed through April 24. The Quilt Guild plans to reschedule the event. Details when they are available.
