Bee News
Sew Joyful Bee spent a day quilting for Cuddle Quilts.  They had thirty quilt tops in need of quilting. Check with Maressa or Lisa if you are willing to help with quilting.  This Bee meets twice a month and is open to all Guild members.

Bizzy Bees usually meets for two hours each week except the week of Guild meeting.  They recently had a workday making a quilt for Hospice.  This is an open group and would welcome guild members to join them.  They usually bring handwork they are working on and sometimes go to lunch afterwards.  They also plan other activities as a group such as attending a quilt show.  If you are interested in visiting or joining this group, the information for the Bee is below.

Sew Happy Quilters Bee has planned their charity quilt they will give at the Guild Christmas luncheon.  Robin Kinley designed the quilt block and each member is making two blocks.  Betty Atchley is piecing the top.

Bizzy Bee News

The Bizzy Bee is open for new members. We meet every Thursday except the 2nd Thursday at 9 a.m. at Colonial Hills Baptist Church on South Broadway in Tyler in the 2nd building in the Craft Room.

We are still working individually on UFO’s. We have completed many unfinished projects. Karen Hollenshead has worked hard to get our scrapbook up-to-date and is including pictures of the UFO’s that have been shown at the Bee meeting.

We have started working on a charity quilt for Hospice by making and sewing 4-patch blocks. Plans are to have a workday to assemble the blocks at a June date, yet to be determined.

For our Christmas party each member is to make a panel into a wall hanging to exchange. It will be interesting to see what each person makes and who gets to take it home.

The co-chairs of Bizzy Bees are Sharon Moses and Ro Simmons.
