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

  • specific block patterns

  • techniques

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.

60 degree triangles - Dena Harding 

Some people find triangles a major stumbling block, but I find 60 degree triangles especially fun. They are so versatile and can really add some pizzazz to your quilts. In this class we will be playing with 60 degree triangles, looking at the different ways you can put them together whether in borders or blocks and finally arranging your blocks into a lovely table runner.  Download the supply list here.

This is an in-person class!
