The Quilt Studio in Afton

Betty Tucker Dietz has been quilting since 1985. For thirty years she taught quilt classes in local quilt shops and hosted quilting retreats at her vacation home/B&B.

In 2016, she retired and moved to the mountains of Virginia with her husband, settling in the small town of Afton. The studio was completed in 2019 and houses her long arm quilting machine.
