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.

Welcome Back!

We are off to a great start this year!  We are preparing and almost ready for our quilt show and bazaar on Saturday, September 17 from 9 am to 4 pm at our meeting location, in the church sanctuary.  Laura has collected registrations for over 100 quilts and Sandy has collected many items for the bazaar.  Pam and Chris are in need of more quilt items for the “Buy it Now” booth (which is very similar to the silent auction from the past quilt shows).  Here are some more details for you regarding the show:
  • Drop off your registered quilts on Friday, September 16 from 4 pm to 6 pm at the church. Please bring each quilt in its own pillowcase.  Laura will check them in and hand you a label to pin on your quilt. Please plan on staying to help set up if you can.  
  • Sandy, Pam and Chris will be collecting items as well at the set up on Friday, September 16.  
  • Sign up to help at the quilt show.  We will need people to sit at the entrance table, work at the bazaar table and the buy it now table, and people to roam the areas to make sure everything is going well and that the quilts are secure.  
  • You may pick up your quilts at 6 pm on Saturday, September 17.  
The quilt show is bound to be an exciting event for all, so I hope you have advertised as much as you can by inviting your friends and family as well as sharing the event on Facebook and other social media.  

We have a full program schedule for the year. Coreen has arranged the program and will have bookmarks for you with the program schedule. We are having some local quilters come to speak to us, including John Putman from Lansing.  Also, Carolyn is preparing for us to have a charity sew-in at the November meeting.  Your bookmark will have more details.  

The January retreat is being planned by Laura and Minda.  The registration starts in September and your payment is due in November.  We have room for 50 quilters, so this year, the board decided to have everyone be able to bring a friend or two after the members have had a chance to sign up.  Most likely the cost will be $125 for members and $145 for non members as it was last year, but Minda will let us know in September if costs have increased.  

The Guild Board also decided to have payment due in November, so please plan on paying earlier this year.  

Raffle quilt tickets for you to sell will be available at the September meeting.  Denise got our license and had the tickets printed and Sally is organizing and keeping track of the tickets. Sally will be handing out tickets at the September meeting. Tickets are $2 each and you will be responsible to sell 10 tickets.  Thank you in advance for selling tickets; it is one of our ways to make money for the guild.  As you already know, the quilts are displayed on the website for all to see.  Thanks again to Carolyn, Diane, Judy and Coreen for donating quilts for the raffle.    

Whew!  And there is more, but you are going to have to come to a meeting to find out all the other things going on.  And, you can check the website; Janie, our Membership and Website Chair has been busy keeping the website up to date.  

See you in September!
Coreen 



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.
