Little Traverse Bay Quilters Guild
is a long-established guild with 100+ members from at least 10 communities in the area surrounding Petoskey.

Last update: September 1, 2014

Welcome to our website! Like most websites, this is a work in progress. Check back often to see progress. Trunk show photos, Show and Tell photos, Peds Quilt photos, etc. are no longer posted on the home page, but are archived according to calendar date. Find the latest "upload" here: Guild Archive


Emmet County Friendship Center
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.
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.

This year’s invitational tea is called a “Black and White Affair” and is a special opportunity to introduce guests to our guild. Darla Parks will be our guest speaker, bringing a trunk show titled “Whole Cloth and More”. Those who signed up at the picnic to bring desserts will be contacted, (think black-chocolate and White-vanilla). You may want to dress in black and while (not required, but maybe fun) and bring any black and white quilts for Show 'n Tell.

For a preview of Darla's work, see her website:
