Presidents Message
Remember that song, Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover by Paul Simon?
“You just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don’t need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don’t need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free”

Isn’t that what we have been doing this past year and a half? We have been leaving everything we love. We quit having meetings, we quit seeing friends and family, and we even quit being a viable member to our quilt guild. Some of us tried to keep the love going in the guild, but it just wasn’t the same. NOW we can change our tune!

Fifty Ways To Get Back To Our Love -The Quilt Guild.
You just cut on your mat, Pat
Rip a new seam, Jean
You don’t need to pin, Quinn
Get yourself quilting
Straighten the grain, Jane
Don’t need no backing
Find some thread, Fred
Get yourself quilting

I hope you come up with a new rhyme and pep to your step so I can see you at the September 2nd meeting at Grand Woods Park, 4500 W. Willow Hwy. in Lansing. Dan Burke will be our speaker! Remember we meet at 7:00 pm, but you can arrive earlier to visit.

Sincerely, Coreen


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.

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.
