Everyone is Welcome!

      Our regular meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month (September through May). Every Milk & Honey Quilters meeting begins with a short guild business update and includes a Show 'n' Tell, when we share the progress of our latest creations or seek project advice from each other. Both completed and unfinished projects are welcomed. Open to everyone, most meetings are held at the American Legion building located off Route 7 South (behind G Stone Motors) in Middlebury. Exceptions will be noted.

      Members receive pre-printed labels to make (or quilt) a name tag. We ask everyone to wear their name tag to every meeting to help us get to know each other - and remember names! 

      Visitors may attend meetings for a $5 fee or become a member for the yearly dues of $10.
