Bee Nights



Bee Night is a fun, relaxed, FREE evening where you will learn a new quilting/sewing technique by working on a small project each month.

Once you have signed up for a Bee Night, we will send you an email containing the supplies list and any pre-class work that is necessary.

On the day of the Bee Night, we will send you a link to the ZOOM meeting, which will start at 6:45pm. and end at 9pm. The actual lesson will begin at 7 pm.

Please have your sewing machine and supplies ready for the meeting.

You can see the list of projects planned for each month below. If you register but are unable to attend, we ask that you let us know in advance, so that we know who to expect at the event and can start on time.

Quilter’s of all skill levels are welcome!!! This is a great way to meet your fellow members and make new friends. Come be a part of the fun!  We look forward to seeing you at our next Bee Night!

Please sign up by Oct. 6 for the Oct.19 Bee Night. Elaine will be teaching how to make a Sewing Thread Catcher. This project uses crushed walnut shells for the pin cushion stuffing and weighting.  It can be found in some pet stores and is available in 10 lb bags for $20 plus tax. Elaine purchased a bag and subdivided it into smaller 2 cup bags and will make them available for purchase/pick up, from her front porch. The cost is $2 per bag which makes approximately 2 pin cushions. Elaine has 12 bags available on a first come basis.  Call ahead to reserve yours and she will put your name on your bag(s). You can phone her to arrange when to pick it up from her house.
