What is the best part of going to a Guild meeting?
Seeing your friends?
Sharing new quilting ideas or Show and tell?
The best part is —
Being Part of a Bee
A bee leader may have a chair waiting for you! If you are interested in forming your own Bee; or would like to find out more about the Bees and how they work, please contact the BeeKeeper. We will see if we can get you buzzing along within the hive.
The more Bees, the more fun, the more quilts … what could be better?
There is a New Bee!

Tuesday morning Bee —
This group is focused on non-traditional quilting and styles such as art quilts, various types of fabric, digitized images and three-dimensional techniques. The group meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 9:30am. Meeting location is the Little Creek Recreation Center, 610 Foxcroft Dr in W-S. The contact person is Gail McNeill, 721-9150
The Beecassos have periodic group challenges, which are tons of fun and push our creativity to new levels. These examples are the results from those challenges. In this challenge, each participant was given an identical bag of “stuff” and was to incorporate at least 9 of the items. It is inspiring to see other’s creative side.
