Recap of Bee Nights from October 2022 - May 2023

November 14, 2022  Gnomes Gnomes Everywhere!

November Bee Night saw sixteen RVQG ladies creating their very cute gnomes, with the guiding hand and encouragement of Liz F., our guest presenter….thank you Liz!

The tables were covered in bags of rice, coloured socks, felt, yarn, buttons, fur and glue guns! Although most had previous experience with glue guns, there were a few hot glue “ouches” and fingers temporarily glued to gnomes! How quickly we forget!

After instruction, much creative thought and crafting skill, our gnome village emerged! Big and small, unique were all! There’s no doubt that these gnomes will multiply and claim the hearts of many.

Bee Night is a wonderful, relaxing way to spend an evening making something special and enjoying the company of fellow quilters. Putting a name to a face (with a mask on!) is a reward of friendship worth pursuing…come out and join in the fun!

The next Bee Night takes place on January 9th on Zoom. Elaine M. is our guest presenter and she will be helping us make Hanging Hand Towels. From the comfort of home, with a hot or cold (?!) beverage of choice, you can welcome in the New Year.  Elaine offers many styles of towels to choose from and video support from You Tube. Sign up at our November 28 meeting or email

PS: a BIG thank you to Shirley for helping us with access to Peace Lutheran. And of course, thanks to the Handywork ladies for adding to the evening’s fun.

Enjoy your holidays!
