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.
If you would like to join a bee or start a bee, come see the Bee Keepers at the back of the room during guild meetings and we can answer questions or at least take your name in hopes of finding other people with the same interests as you.
