Bees are a thriving part of any guild. A quilting bee is a small group of quilters who get together on a regular basis to stitch, create, bond, share, and enjoy each other’s company. They can meet in quilt shops, churches, each other’s homes or at convenient locations like coffee shops or restaurants. Meeting places depend on the size of the bee. Most bees are 5 to 12 members and have interests that are similar. PSQG hosts over 35 bees and cover a wide range of interests. Everything from piecing, hand quilting, hand piecing, scrappy quilts, modern quilts, reproduction quilts, fabric dyeing, machine quilting, English paper piecing, wool fabrics, appliqué, embroidery, Dear Jane, knitting, or just social groups are represented in our guild.
