How to Join the Honor Quilters
Want to help honor our Van Buren Eagles #3996 Military Personnel?
Join the Eagle Honor Quilters and learn how to quilt!
Here's a great way to honor our military... QUILTING!
What? You don't know how to quilt? Well, join our group and Michelle will teach you how to quilt, step-by-step, when we meet on the second and fourth Monday of every month.
You will be in the company of others who are beginners, so come join the fun, learn a new craft, and share in the friendship of a newly formed social group. We also welcome veteran quilters!
In the process of learning, you will create, make, donate, and dedicate quilts to our very own Eagle members who have given service to our country.
Quilters/students must be Aerie or Auxiliary members (or spouses of members).
If this interests you, please contact Michelle Gueli at Michellequilts3996@gmail.com

What: Quilting class
Where: Van Buren Eagles #3996, 9961 Beck Rd., Belleville, MI 48111
When: 7-9 pm
SPECIAL CLASS UPDATE: Join us for class on April 9, 2018 and April 23, 2018 to make fleece blankets for Fleece & ThankYou, a charity that makes sure local children in the hospital have blankets. Check them out at www.fleeceandthankyou.org
If you want to join us to make a fleece blanket, all you need are 2 - 2 yard cuts of fleece that coordinate, a pair of scissors, and either a ruler or a measuring tape or yard stick. You can also buy twin sized kits at craft stores. If you want to buy the kits and donate them to us to make, that's fine too!
We will still be doing our usual Eagle Honor Quilting during these two special class sessions, so if you have a quilt to work on, bring it with you and we will get it done!
