come join us in our quilting adventure! 

Joplin Area Town and Country Quilters

The Town and Country Quilters of Joplin, Missouri, was established in 1985. Our purpose is to promote the art and craft of patchwork and quilting. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the craft, from beginner to the professional. Annual dues are $20.00. We invite you to visit our general monthly meetings at Peace Lutheran Church on North St. Louis in Joplin Missouri. We meet the 3rd Tuesday every month at noon for a pot luck luncheon. An educational program, show and tell,  and a business meeting start at 1 p.m. You will be a part of a great group of people who share the same interest as you.

Our Next Meeting


The new location is Peace Lutheran Church.  The address is 3100 N. St. Louis Ave. Joplin MO 64801

The Joplin Area Town and County Quilters wish you a happy, healthy new year.  Each month we will describe the program for the month.  A visitor is welcomed to attend a meeting twice, before becoming a member.  

On Tuesday, January 15, the education class, held at 10:30 a.m.,  will be a demonstration of new notions that our education coordinator, Lorna Stover, purchased at the Paduca Quilt Show.  She will also present ideas for some fun and easy winter projects.

January guild meeting days have not always had the best weather.  With  that in mind, instead than scheduling a speaker for the program who may not be able to safely drive to Joplin, we will have a show and tell of Friendship Quilts made by our members.  If you are unaware of what a Friendship Quilt, they are constructed using blocks made and signed by fellow quilting friends.  The recipient chooses a size, pattern and possibly favored colors.  Friends construct and sign the block using a permanent pen, and give it to their quilting friend.  

If Joplin schools are cancelled, the guild meeting will follow their lead and also be cancelled.

This month on the 29th we will have a Community Service Work day from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Peace Lutheran Church.  Bring your sewing machine and general sewing supplies.  Pre-cut fabric kits will be available for assembly.  Bring your own lunch, or order delivery, and enjoy a fun day sewing for others.
