Hello Everyone!

Hope all is well. The weather is looking more and more like winter. Not my favorite time of the seasons. I always have a lot to do but doing it is another story. I think I lack the incentive thing,

Our board has been busy making the best decisions they can for our LAP group, Covid has changed a lot of things for us as well as others. That being said I was very disappointed that we felt compelled to cancel our retreat in January. We will just hope that 2022 will bring us a great retreat. A special thanks to Laura and Minda for all their hard work. We all will look forward to 2022. 


Welcome to the Lansing Area Patchers Website ...

This website provides support for the Lansing Area Patchers Quilt Guild (LAP).  LAP was formed more than 30 years ago by a small number of members.  At the end of the first years LAP had grown to 30.  In addition to providing training to its members through classes, lectures and library books, LAP members are involved in a number of quilting projects like silent auctions, challenge quilts and ugly fabric block contest.  An important part of LAP is its service projects such as quilts for those in hospice, doll quilts for disadvantages kids, quilts for people in emergency housing and even comfort quilts to nursing homes.  

In addition to supporting these activities, this website provides its members access to meeting minutes, slide shows, financial reports, a directory of its member and forms and documents with information of all types.  

Interested in becoming a member?  You can get all of your questions answered by sending them to one or more of the board members you'll find under Contact Us.  If you're ready to join, click on the application form button below, fill it out and send it as instructed. 



 


Attention3
NOTE:  In the midst of a global pandemic, any or all of the plans for LAP meetings and activities may have to change (e.g., utilizing Zoom instead of a physical meeting).  LAP will be adhering to all mandated State and Local regulations as they are announced.  We will attempt to keep this website updated with LAPs latest plans and information.
 


Quilt making is a fun and rewarding activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. It is an act of creation of true beauty and an expression of emotion that is captured and shown in the careful choice and preparation of fabric and in the placement of each individual stitch.

The best thing about making your own quilt is that once it is finished you get to share it with your family and friends! A quilt can be used by someone on a day-to-day basis and serve as a constant reminder of the love, care and attention to detail that went into making it. For this reason many quilts are cherished and kept as heirlooms to be passed down to future family generations.



 


On The Internet
WEBSITES TO BROWSE!!
From Pam Marcis
 
The Quilt Show - https://thequiltshow.com/ Hosted by Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. Site is free . Alex will be starting her 4th free sew along in early Nov. She is live Mon., Wed. and Fri. at 1 pm. Ricky may be live on Tues., Thurs., and Sat. If you choose to become a member of the quilt show, than members receive all the past shows featuring teachers and techniques. It’s $19.95 for 6 months

Amanda Murphy is live on Face book Thursday at 11am. Search for Amanda Murphy designs in Face book. She talks and demos for 45 min. She primarily teaches machine quilting, with rulers and free motion quilting. Some days, she is on a domestic machine, but she does have a sit down long arm and a stand up long arm. The past couple of weeks she discussed raw edge appliqué with SVG files. She works primarily on Bernina machines, but is familiar with other machines due to her teaching at guilds and shops.

Missouri Star - https://www.missouriquiltco.com/ Jenny’s tutorials are available for free. Missouri Star has an app and it lists all her free quilt block videos.

Linda Z Quilt Shop - https://www.lindazs.com/ from the Chicago Area. They are featuring for By Annie bag making classes $89 for 12 monthly. Each month a new bag is made. Members purchase the By Annie pattern and supplies. Fabric can be from your stash. There is no kit. The videos are available to watch a number of times, so it’s a non pressure class. (Basically, each virtual class is less than $8.00) It’s a private site for paid class attendees.

If you are an embroiderer, there are many quilt shops offering virtual Kimberbell classes. The advantages are not packing your embroidery unit and machine, the price of the class is less expensive than an in person class, and if you fall behind, you can sew after class to catch up since your machine is at home with you. The shops ship kits, which are included in the cost of the class. You have time to prep your fabric, and you are ready to sew! My Girlfriends QuiltShop - https://mygirlfriendsquiltshoppe.com/ is great. The owner of the shop is the sister of the owner of Kimberbell. Due to the time change from Utah, class doesn’t begin till 12 noon and ends around 6 pm. They also answer questions as one sews. It’s a private Face book site for class attendees
