The Moonlight Quilters of Sonoma County host “Program Meetings” once a month, alternating with the Business Meetings. But don’t let the name "Business" fool you. We have fun at Business Meetings too!
Program Meetings often provide a special presentation by an invited speaker. Our speakers are nationally and internationally known quilters so we plan the schedule years in advance. There is a guest fee of $5 for Program Meetings with speakers.
Check the current Newsletter for Program Meeting details.

February 17 - Patricia Belyea - The Alluring World of Japanese Yukata Quilts Okanarts.com
A creative quilt maker, speaker and teacher, Patricia co-owns Okan Arts with her daughter Victoria. The small family business imports vintage Japanese textiles for adventuresome quilters. Patricia is the author of East-Meets-West Quilts, a book about making improv quilts with Japanese fabrics. Join Patricia Belyea as she takes you on a virtual tour of the Tokyo Quilt Festival. Then get swept away to a chusen-dyeing workshop where you watch the elaborate hand-dyeing process. Patricia finishes with a trunk show of her quilts made with Japanese cottons and talks about how the fabrics inspired her quilt compositions.
