Basic Skills Classes

The talented members of the Moonlight Quilters of Sonoma County share their skills in four classes each year.


These classes are FREE to members!


These fun and informative classes are held from 10:00 am

to 3:30 pm at Village Sewing Center in Santa Rosa.


Classes cover such topics as:

  • applique: machine or hand

  • machine piecing or quilting

These workshops are a fun way to get to know your fellow MQSC members, learn a new skill, or brush up on something you haven’t done for a while.
