Quilts of Valor Workshop

St Paul Lutheran Church 1427 W Lake Avenue, Peoria, IL

Quilts of Valor, led by Kelly Harvey. We will work on quilts that will be awarded to veterans at our quilt show in August. Kelly will make up some kits to hand out at the April meeting so we can get a head start, and Healing Hands will also feature a Patriotic block to be collected in June that will be put to use. The workshop will be held at St Paul from 9-3. There is no fee, but we will “pass the hat” to help defray the cost of the room.
