2021 MLQ Virtual Programs

For the foreseeable future in 2021,
ALL Meetings, Workshops, and Sew What sessions are virtual via Zoom

Members will receive Zoom meeting invitations via email a few days prior to the session.

Guests are welcome to attend monthly meetings—details and a link to register by using PayPal or a credit card for the $5.00 guest fee is presented with each meeting description.

New members are always welcome, visit our Membership page for details.



  • We offer 10 program meetings each year with expert speakers, classes, workshops, and Show & Tell.
  • We meet virtually for our Monthly programs on the third Friday of each month, except June, July, August, and December. 
  • In July and August we do NOT meet for a program meeting—workshops are often offered instead.
  • Also note that we meet virtually for our Bee — a totally separate meeting — on most “non-meeting” Fridays, all year long.  More Information here.

What is the process of growing cotton, creating fabric, designing fabric, having it printed and delivered to your local quilt shop? Probably much more that you ever considered.  You will learn how it’s grown and manufactured.  You will get insights on how different designers create special lines of fabric, and how manufacturers get their goods into your local quilt shops.
