Patchers at the Lakeshore Presents
The Threads of Friendship 2017 Quilt Show on May 12 & 13
It is almost time for our Biennial Threads of Friendship Quilt Show, so put it on your calendar for May 12 & 13, 2017 at the Fellowship Reformed Church 4200 East Apple Avenue. We will have two raffle quilts, a new challenge quilt, new vendors and much more. We wouldn’t have a great show without all of you who volunteer and your beautiful quilts, so start thinking about what you would like to put in the show and what you would like to volunteer for.
Quilt Registration Table Kathy Ploughman/Dianna Michelli

Challenge Fabric and rules will be available at guild meetings through February. Additional fabric may be purchased by calling or emailing Kay Wilton before the meeting.
Bed Turning Char Hagner
A short reminder: I am asking for primitive quilts, pineapple quilts and any others that have a story you would like to share. Without you and your story our bed turning won’t be successful, so if you have such a quilt; please share.
