Celebrate National Quilting Day on Saturday, March 17, at the Landrum Library. LQ members will display quilts, work on quilting projects and answer quilting questions from 9 a.m. until 1 p. m.
We welcome visitors and new members to the Landrum Quilters.
Join us on the second Thursday of each month at 9:30 a. m. The agenda includes a business meeting, show and tell, an educational program and refreshments.
The historic Gowensville Community Center serves as our meeting place. It is located near the intersection of highways 11 and 14. Its official address is 14186 Highway 11, Campobello, SC 29322.
The location is a convenient drive from Landrum, Greenville, Spartanburg, Gaffney, Hendersonville and places in between.
On the fourth Monday at 9:30 a. m., we also gather for a bee at the center. You can bring a project to work on, spend time looking at books from our extensive library or share ideas with friends.
Dues are $20 per year. Our year starts in January.
This group, organized in 1980, has grown to more than 130 members who share the common love of creativity through quilting and fabric arts. Our monthly programs, periodic workshops and philanthropic projects offer members a variety of educational experiences and opportunities to form lasting friendships.
Visitors may attend two meetings before joining.

National Quilting Day
LQ donated the first block for which is now the Foothills Quilt Trail in Landrum. LQ members also are assisting the city of Landrum with this project. To date, 22 blocks are hanging in the city plus one at the Gowensville Community Center, a gift from the Landrum Quilters. The first block hangs above the gym at Landrum Middle School.
Thanks to all who worked at and attended the 2013 Landrum Quilt Show. Some 1,100 attended from 14 states and 3 foreign countries.
Next show: 2015.
