Monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month (February-November) at Second Reformed Church, 2323 Stadium Dr. in Kalamazoo. The doors open at 6:15 pm for informal social time, free table, vendors, and demonstrations by our members. The formal program starts at 7:00 pm. The program is an educational/inspirational presentation by our own members, and regional or national speakers. We usually have 2-3 national speakers per year. Guests are always welcome at our meetings and these lectures may be attended by the general public as well as by our members. A nominal fee is assessed to attend as a guest when we have a national speaker. Sometimes workshops are taught during the day by a visiting national speaker. The workshops open first to Kalamazoo Log Cabin Quilt members and then to other quilters who are interested.
