I am a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. I have always enjoyed needle arts and have been a quilter, and a teacher of quilting, for the past twenty years. I have periodically nurtured a small pattern business which I will introduce to this blog over time.
MOKA is the name of a special quilt study group with members from the states of MO, Oklahoma, Kansas and Arkansas. MOKA! Formed February 28, 2003 at a meeting in Joplin,MO, MOKA meets three times a year where its members arrange special programs and train themselves in the history of quilt making. Our members are dedicated to learning as much as possible about this very special part of women's history. We count among the members, women who participated in the state quilt searches and wrote the books about these searches. We are teachers, lecturers, book writers, pattern designers and above all a little obsessed with quilts. Our meetings usually have a theme such as Hawaiian quilts, Redwork, Applique, red and green quilts, catalogs, kit quilts and more.
This summer we met in Columbia, MO to learn about and see family quilts.
