We meet at the Tavern Restaurant in the Cliffs Walnut Cove gated golfing community most months, however once or twice a year we do a field trip or meet at a member’s home. Please check the website prior to the meeting for details. Changes in the schedule will be on this page.
Take the Long Shoals exit off I-26, go west to the second light. Turn right on 191 at that light. Turn left at the Cliffs Walnut Cove main gate entrance just past the Shell station. Bear right to the entrance to the Cliffs Community, and stop at the gate. Tell Security you are having lunch with the quilter group at the Tavern. Go thru gate and follow the road for a good distance to T-intersection at the stop sign. Turn right, go 1/2 mile, then turn left at the entrance to Tavern and Golf club at the large stone sign that says Tavern and Golf Club. The Tavern is the building on the left. Enter the main door facing the club, and the concierge will greet and escort you to the room which is just behind main dining room on your left.
Using GPS? If you are coming from the south, Hendersonville area, DO NOT USE GPS. It will take you to the back entrance that has no guard and you cannot get in. Go I26 to Long Shoals, then turn it on, or just follow the directions above. The address is – 40 Club Village Way, Arden, NC 28704

Please do not ask for advice on purchasing a longarm or beginning a business. That is not something we can provide, as our good natures have been taken advantage of in the past. Current longarm owners are welcome as guests at our meetings, just show up. Sorry, our group is only open to current longarm or midarm owners.
