Quilting Bees are small groups that meet to work on individual or group projects.  They may be social gatherings or work study groups with a specific quilt related focus. The Guild encourages members to participate in and create new Bees as a way to bring people together, make new friends and learn a skill. Any group of members can create a Bee.

If you are interested in joining a bee or starting a bee, contact Laura Pacha, the Beekeeper at
Information on all bees, contacts and meeting days and times are available to members on our Members Only page.
