Welcome to the

Lake Michigan Sampler Guild!

This is a very special year for the Lake Michigan Sampler Guild. We’re celebrating our 20th anniversary! There will be special programs, projects and surprises all year long, so make sure you add our 2018 meetings to your calendar.

The Lake Michigan Sampler Guild is a non-profit organization of enthusiastic needlework lovers. If you like antique needlework, want to learn more about samplers or love to stitch, then join the Lake Michigan Sampler Guild! We invite you to be a guest at our next meeting held at the Community Center in Wheaton, IL. Come and meet others who share your love of stitching and samplers!

  • March 2018 Meeting Photos

    IMG_5997Here are the photos from our March 2018 meeting. We had 6 eggs entered in the Easter Egg contest. We voted and the top three got prize baskets. Members brought samplers related to Easter, eggs and spring for show and tell.

  • 20th Anniversary Sampler “Friendship”

    This Friendship Sampler was designed especially for the Lake Michigan Sampler Guild by Marsha Parker of The Scarlet Letter. It is an appropriate 20th Anniversary memento and a tribute to the friendships formed by and between our members.

Amy was the first President of the Lake Michigan Sampler Guild in 1998. She has graciously opened her home to us for this exciting celebration. Party On!
