Presidents Message
Hello Everyone!

Summer is finally here with all its glory! We are chugging along and making the best decisions for our LAP group. Our board still meets with Zoom to keep up with all our progress and decisions that have to be made. Thanks to everyone who has volunteered and continues to volunteer. Our membership coordinator and the Shipshewana trip coordinator has been filled. Our Shipshewana trip will tentatively be in October 2021. As always any questions or concerns please let us know. That is one of your board’s jobs. I will answer any questions or direct you to someone who can answer your questions at anytime. Not one person should be expected to have all the answers to everything. We rely on others who have done certain positions to fill other people in on those job duties.

Here’s to everyone having a safe and productive summer. Keep on stitching!

Respectively yours, Sandra Guild


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 (i.e. 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.

September 3rd
LAP Meeting
Delta Presbyterian Church is closed and will not open until after September 15th. Therefore LAP will not be able to have an in-church meeting.
Option: the Board met on June 17th and discussed options for the September meeting.
  1. Meet by ZOOM.
  2. Ask the church for permission to have a meeting in the parking lot. Each member would bring their own chair. This option is weather dependent.
  3. Find another outdoor location for a meeting.
The Board will meet on August 19 and make a decision

Additional concerns mentioned at the board meeting were payment to the church due to not having all 10 meetings last year and the church’s sanitation protocol.

NEXT BOARD MEETING August 19 at 6 pm
