I have 2 fairly large pieces of good quality fabric left over from pillows made for me. I do not sew and do not want to just throw it away. Any one interested. One is khaki and the other is a burnt orange color. I wouldbe glad to do a porch drop off.
Does anyone have a good face mask pattern? I need one without elastic, with ties. There at so many patterns so wondering which ones you like most!
Hello everyone. I do not quilt or sew, but I am looking for some help from people who do! My mom was an excellent seamstress, but unfortunately, she passed away last month and left an extensive collection of fabric, sewing supplies, and a very nice sewing machine and serger. I would like to see these items go to someone who could make good use of them, as well as ensure that my dad gets a fair price for the machines. I really have no clue about where I should advertise these items, so if anyone has any ideas, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much!
https://www.facebook.com/events/2386957974700706/?ti=ia Coopersville Farm Museum would like to invite members of the Lighthouse Quilt Guild to share their quilts in the upcoming exhibit of “Quilts and Their Stories”. The Director’s Choice is Star Quilts. These will be featured, but all quilts will be displayed. Sleeves basted on the back makes them show better. Due July 2-13, 2019. T/T/S 10am-4pm
Greetings! I am working up product for quilt shows that I am vending at... for hookers I sell the wool by 1/2, 1/4, & 1/8 yards. But thinking that it would be fun to do some colored bundles or packets for the appliqué's - wondering what sizes of fabric, numbers of pieces so number of colors in a group? was thinking smaller pieces about 8" x 10" and groups of 5? and the cost of hand dyed wool is $28 a half yard - so ... any advice and guidance from you all would be greatly appreciated. In the dye pots today gearing up for Spring shows! Let me know if you want to come visit "The Corner" going to be there today from 2:00 - 6:00. Chris
found it -
a few months ago some showed a quilt in "Show & Tell" that was a... month or year photo baby quilt - one to take pictures of the baby on? I think - I don't have time to go thru all of the pictures and was hoping someone would know but also forgot to ask last night! Help!! Please and Thank you!!!
We still have openings for the: Ruth Ann Berry Workshop February 11, 2019 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM (lunch on your own) Please check out Ruth Ann’s website (https://www.quiltersclinic.com) for all 12 of her bargello patterns.

Please email Wendy at [email protected] for more information.
Last week was a very sad week... my very old and special sewing machine died. It was older than . . . but it was the best and would sew through anything. The reason I am telling you all this is I am looking for a new workhorse machine. Can't pay a lot but if you have an old machine you don't know what to do with I would be happy to see if it would work. Please give me a call. 616-566-1144.

Join us every 2nd Monday of the Month at the United Church of the Dunes in Grand Haven, Michigan. Our Social Time begins at 6:30 and our Meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.

The LQG meets the 2nd Monday of every month at the United Methodist Church of the Dunes in Grand Haven, MI. Our guild has blossomed into an eclectic group that ranges from traditional to experimental ... from piecing commercial patterns to bringing our own designs to life ... from quilting as personal therapy to making quilts to heal others. Our common thread is the desire to come together to learn and grown in quilting and fiber arts. We bring in top name instructors and teach each other. We hold working meetings for charity and occasionally break bread together. We show off the fruits of our labors, and support each other toward turning our UnFinished Objects into show pieces. In fact, our annual quilt show draws in visitors from all corners to our beautiful resort community.

Operating as usual

Thanks to all the volunteers that helped Leslie and I both days to make the fabric sale possible!! Was a very light turnout both days 😢 but those of us that were working kept each other company!!!

Bloom Challenge Reveal 200

Bloom Challenge Reveal 200

Carol Keen and Jackie Fisher challenged the members of Lighthouse Quilt Guild to make a small wall hanging or table topper with two fat quarters provided by another member in a blind exchange. No one knew who had their fabric until the day of the reveal. Many had not remembered what theirs was since it had been many months since the challenge was launched. 21 members made a quilt of their own design or from a pattern and gifted it back to the person whose fabric they had. There were many happy smiles and surprises! Check out all these blooms and smiles!

Hope everyone had a great summer despite all the sadness going on all around us. Just want to remind you all that this is the last week to send us your completed sailboat ⛵️ blocks! We are hoping to have enough to make 2 wallhanings so we need some more! Here are some examples to get you excited about going through your stash of fun colors and prints!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous summer despite the sadness going on all around us. Just want to remind everyone to get in their sailboat blocks this week. We are trying to get enough to have 2 wall hangings up for raffle! This is the last week to send them to the girls. Check your instructions for the address to send the completed ones to!!! Here are just a few examples to get you exited...

Librarian bought this book for the library when we ever get back to normal at the church! If someone wants it now just send me an email and maybe I can drop off to you!

[07/10/20]   Hope all you members are staying cool in this heat wave! I hope you all received your special surprise in the mail ⛵️.
Mail your finished block to me using the address in the letter.
If you would like to be put on the list to make a second boat for a second chance at the lottery don’t forget to make a note of it when you send your first block in.
Thank you to the team that is leading this project and keeping us together as a guild. Carol keen, Jackie Baden, Elizabeth Clark and kim Frisch.

[04/10/20]   WORDS OF WISDOM ON GETTING THROUGH EACH DAY
FROM ELIZABETH AND WHAT SHE DOES.

I talk on the phone a lot with local friends and my old pals around the country. It helps. I have a 4-point program
for fighting this crisis: 1) Get outside for a walk or just some fresh air; 2) Bake something not only for the
product, but also for the fragrance; 3) Have long talks with friends; and 4) Get out of your bra [in the 60's we
burned them] and feel free.

Anyone else have any tidbits to add, please let us know so we can post.
