Little Traverse Bay Quilters Guild
is a long-established guild with 136 members from at least 10 communities in the area surrounding Petoskey.
 

 

in Petoskey, Michigan,
near the "Tip of the Mitt,"
and just 30 miles south of the
Big Mackinac Bridge!

 

We meet every second Thursday at the Emmet County Friendship Center, 1322 Anderson Road in Petoskey. Guild members who wish to meet and visit with other quilters may bring needlework at 3pm. Some members take a dinner break at about 5pm. Light refreshments are served at 6pm, and our regular meeting begins at 6:30pm. Guild members may bring guests.



Emmet County Friendship Center
LTB Quilters Guild is regarded with good will and support from our surrounding community, and we gladly return the favor. We provide McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital with quilts for pediatric patients, and make sure every senior citizen who receives Meals on Wheels also has a cheerful quilted placemat. And, as a "Thank You" to those who allow us to use the Friendship Center, we yearly provide a quilt that they may then use for a raffle fundraiser.

Next regular meeting of the Little Traverse Bay Quilt Guild is set for
 
 
6:30pm, Thursday, June 11
     
 

 



Program focus: Why do we have a judged show? What is our Guild’s quilt show history? What actually takes place on Judging Day and who are the judges?  How does a juried show differ from a judged show? These are just a few of the questions that will be part of Tresa Keys’ presentation at the June 11th guild meeting. Starts at 6:30pm -- be there in time for 6pm snackies.

Did you know there's a dedicated group of quilters for our local Hospice Chapter?

Our sister quilters meet once a week to cut and sew quilts for patients at Hiland Cottage, the hospice facility maintained by Vital Care Hospice of Little Traverse Bay, and part of McLaren Northern Michigan. Every patient admitted to Hiland Cottage is given a 5'x7' quilt made to fit an extra-long twin hospital bed. Patient families are allowed to keep the quilt. These ladies have some critical needs: batting, larger pieces of fabric and backing materials. They also need the assistance of long-arm stitchers to help finish the quilts. If you can provide any of these materials, please call Barbara Postelnick at 231-347-0798.

Hiland Cottage

The Hospice Quilters meet from 9am-12 noon each Wednesday at McLaren's Community Health Education Center (the old A&P location) on Connable Avenue. They will welcome anyone who wants to lend a hand.
