Monthly Meetings

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.

Cindy Brick: There Must Be a Story Behind That Quilt
Workshop October 17:  Quilts with Secrets

Cindy BrickQuilts have their tales to tell! We’ll explore various patchwork styles, including Vestibule Star and Snowball (pieced designs), Crazy Quilts, as well as related styles like red work, ribbon work, accessories and parlor pieces, that had their own secret meanings and stories to share, especially about their makers’ taste in politics, affections and family goings-on. We’ll explore some of the primary themes in the quilt maker’s lexicon, including grief, love (and hate), and patriotism. Then we’ll work on your own “quilt of secrets,” using your favorite messages from provided patterns and techniques. Registration Form
