Since 1979, Ms. Godfrey has been a member and served as past officer of the Waterford Quilters Guild. She has exhibited at the Franklin Park Arts Center, Leesburg Town Hall, Purcellville Train Station, Bluemont Fair, Leesburg County Government Building, and currently, several of her large bed quilts are permanently exhibited at the Purcellville Town Hall.  She continues to judge quilt shows and lecture throughout the northeast. She is a Charter member of the National Association of Certified Quilt Judges and treasurer for the Mason Dixon Professional Quilters Network, a network of judges, teachers, quilt shop owners in the Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania area.
