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

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.
