Quilting Bees
 
Bee Keeper: Kathy Watkins

Small stitch groups within our guild that meet regularly to stitch, do group projects, socialize and have fun.   Organization is kept limited, ie - no secretary, no minutes, no dues!   Most are limited in size due to meeting area restraints.  BCQG members may contact the Bee Keeper if you want to join or form a new group.  These bees form the heart of our guild and keep us going!  What better way to get to know some of the members! 

Membership to a bee is not restricted to BCQG members. Do invite your Bee members to join Bear Creek Quilt Guild if they haven't.

Please let the Bee Keeper know what your Bee is doing or needing.

Starting a bee and keeping it going:
Keeping a bee going takes some perseverance at the beginning.  Make it  a habit not to cancel a meeting because only 2 or 3 can show up for a particular meeting.  If need be, change where you have to meet for that day.  As the group gets used to meeting with each other, your meetings will become better attended as each member makes it a part of their life.  Besides, the ones who don't show up will be curious about what you did or said at the meeting(s) they missed!
