MLQ Programs for 2022



OUR 2022 PROGRAMS

About MLQ Programs and Events

  • We offer 10 program meetings each year with expert speakers, classes, workshops, and Show & Tell.
  • We meet 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 in person at the Tredyffrin Library for our Bee (“Sew What”)– a totally separate meeting — on the first Friday of each month, all year long. 
    More Information here.

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

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.
