A Sewing Arts Class
Baxter’s Threads Program is a sewing arts class that focuses on community. Led by Erica Millbrooks, this talented group of ladies focuses on the art of quilting, creating garments and more. Class members learn many techniques to refine and improve their sewing skills. But that’s not all… our Threads ladies have gone on many field trips, and not just to fabric stores. The class has traveled to Ferris State University to the Jim Crow Museum, All Around the African World Museum in Lansing, and to New Era, Michigan for a quilt retreat!
The Annual Quilt Show is a community favorite that showcases African American quilts both current and historical. Over 60 quilts displayed at the show each year. See below for this year’s Quilt Show information.

The new book entitled “Home Style Family Recipes” is a culinary collection assembled by Baxter’s “Threads” Sewing Arts Group. It includes a diverse array of yummy recipes that will keep you tummy full and your palate delighted!
All proceeds will will go directly towards a scholarship for a student in our community. The scholarship will be presented during this year’s Quilt Show (Sept 16-17), which will highlight African American quilts, showcase our very own quilts from Baxter’s Threads class and feature storytelling and children activities.
Give us a call at (616) 456-8593 if you are interested in a cookbook.
