Asking for Bee Information

Greetings fellow BIG RED QUILTERS GUILD members! Your feedback matters!  We have new and existing members that would like to join in the fun at the many area quilting bees, but they may not know where to find them, or when they meet.  I announced at our last guild meeting that we’d soon be collecting information about all the different quilting bees in our area.  However, we need to hear from you in order to do that.  Once compiled, the information will be available to our membership on our soon-to-be-launched website…..which is also very exciting!

The next step requires you, and it’s very simple.  Tell us about the bee(s) you are in using the information below.  If you would like to join a bee, tell us that too.  As you are filling out the info, keep these descriptions in mind:

  1. OPEN bees – always open to new members/attendees (these typically meet in churches or public spaces)
  2. CLOSED bees – not able to take new members based on limited meeting space (these usually meet in homes)

Here’s an example to help you get started, then return this to me with your information NO LATER THAN MONDAY, MARCH 28, 2016.
