Welcome to PALS

The Patchers at the Lakeshore Threads of Friendship 2017 Quilt Show is a Huge Success

Hundreds turned out for the Threads of Friendship Quilt Show on May 12th and 13th.

PALS had another wonderful Threads of Friendship Quilt Show.  We heard nothing but great comments for this year’s show.  The quilt registration went smoothly, the vendors were great, the challenge was a success, the Chinese auction and boutique were very profitable, publicity brought the crowd in, the 2 raffle quilts were beautiful, and the church ladies served a wonderful lunch.  But, the show would have been nothing if it weren’t for the beautiful quilts and ALL of the fabulous volunteers. A very big THANK YOU to the PALS members (and husbands), who devoted their time to our 2017 Threads of Friendship Quilt Show.  We are only as good as our TEAM.

Karen Combs will be our guest speaker and instructor in June.

She will be presenting two very interesting and fun classes.  “More Patchwork  Illusions” will held on Sunday, June 4 from 9:30-4:00.  “Celtic Illusions” will be held on Monday, June 5 from 9:30-4:00.  Both classes will be held at Quilted Memories in Montague.  Signups for the classes will begin at our April meeting.

PALS (Patchers at the Lakeshore) was formed in January 1991 to nurture and encourage friendships through the education and tradition of quilting. We are all quilters – novice, expert and everything in between! We have a large and resourceful membership of about 250.

PALS meets the first Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Fellowship Reformed Church, 4200 Apple Avenue in Muskegon. A special program, guest speaker or activity follows a short business meeting. “Show and Tell” is a special time at the end of each meeting, where members bring their latest projects to share with the group.PALS_meeting
