Meet Quilters, Join a Bee!

as of 9/30/2017

An age-old tradition of our craft, quilting bees provide a fun (and usually delicious) way to connect with other quilters who share your passion for quilting and who can offer advice and help with your current projects.  Check out the list of bees, organized by location, in the Tucson Area.

 Contact the bees directly to inquire about membership.  Since most bees meet in members’ homes or otherwise limited spaces, some bees are sometimes closed to new members.  Look for open spaces in other bees; many are looking for new members to fill out their ranks.  Or, start your own bee.  Contact the Guild “Beekeeper” for information.
