We warmly invite members of the quilting community to attend our program meetings. All visitors will be required to pay a fee of $5 at the door. The guest fee may be applied towards a membership fee that day. We normally meet the 2nd Wednesday each month, coffee at 9:30, meeting from 10 AM - 12:30, at the North Chevy Chase Christian Church, 8814 Kensington Parkway, Chevy Chase, MD 20815. (Click here for directions.) With the pandemic, however, we are currently meeting remotely. Workshops require registration in advance of the event.

  Winter Weather Policy.  NeedleChasers follows the lead of the Montgomery County Public Schools:   if school is cancelled, our NeedleChasers meeting for that day is also cancelled. If the schools have a delayed opening, our NeedleChasers meeting will take place at its regular time.
