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.

Circular Explorations Workshop (2-day class)
Circles are powerful design elements creating movement and interest. Learn versatile techniques for freeform cutting and piecing circles and other curvilinear shapes to create your own dynamic compositions. Explore the design possibilities of circles - fractured, distorted, quartered, and more. Deconstruct a classic shape into something new and individually expressive. Suitable for all skill levels. This workshop will be split into two sessions one week apart to give you time to practice the techniques learned in the first meeting before moving on to more complex designs.
