The Moonlight Quilters of Sonoma County meet the first and third Wednesday of each month (except in July and August) at 7:00 p.m. at the Veteran’s Memorial Building, 1351 Maple Avenue, Santa Rosa, California. During July and August only one meeting is held each month, and September’s second meeting is a pot-luck picnic to coincide with the installation of the officers for the coming year.
The first meeting of the month is a business meeting, giving everyone an opportunity to participate in the committee reports, learn more about quilting, hear from an affiliate sponsor, draw names for the Block of the Month and then enjoy the Star Quilter of the month and a show and tell session where guild members share their latest projects. The second meeting is dedicated to education, a demonstration or a hands-on workshop.
Several traditional events occur each year, such as the Installation Pot-Luck Picnic in September. In December, there is a gift exchange at the Potluck Christmas Party. The biggest event of the year is Wine Country Quilts the guild’s two-day quilt show held each June in Santa Rosa.
Presenting the MQSC 2012-2013 Opportunity Quilt!
“What Do You Sea?”
Each year the Moonlight Quilters of Sonoma County create a new quilt for our fund raising raffle.
This year’s quilt was entirely paper pieced with batik fabrics and took about 6 months to complete. The pattern is a Judy Niemeyer design. Members who did the piecing were Pam Larcher, Kathy Seely, Jackie Pavlicek, and Nancy Samples. The quilt was then beautifully quilted by Jackie Pavlicek.
Raffle tickets are available from the MQSC Opportunity Quilt Coordinators or members. Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. The drawing will be held on Sept. 4, 2013. You need not be present to win.
