Bees

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.  There are a number of bees in the Guild and some are closed because of size limitations. The Guild encourages members to participate in and create new Bees. Any group of members can create a Bee.

If you are interested in joining a bee or starting a bee, contact Raf Chavez, the Beekeeper at rafchavez@comcast.net.
