MLQ Programs for 2023



OUR 2023 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.  And for the months of January and February we will have additional ZOOM ONLY Sew What meetings on the second and fourth Fridays.
