Quilting
Bees and Buddies

A quilting bee is a group of quilters who meet to promote fellowship involving quilting on various personal, group and/or charity projects.  These groups typically share common quilting goals and can form close bonds in support for each other. 

 

Groups may form by geographical area, quilting interest or topic such as paper piecing, applique, traditional or art quilting.  Each group decides how many members to maintain, how often and where they meet, and what focus, or purpose guides their individual group.@gmail.com

We're always in the process of forming new bees. If you have any ideas for new bees or are interested in being a coordinator of a new bee, please contact Patty Martin.

The following are quilting bees that currently meet. Please contact the Coordinator for any questions to verify they're accepting new members. Some bees are limited by the space where they meet.  For Coordinator contact information, see your PPQG Directory or send email to ppqgmemberactivities@gmail.com for further information.

Singer Featherweight Bee

The Featherweight bee meets once a month. Their main goal is to have fun and enjoy time with guild members. Members will take turns "leading a meeting".

They're also starting a "resource folder" for ideas of gadgets, tool and websites to share.
