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.
“Sew Joyful” Bee – This new bee was created to welcome all new and existing guild members who want to sew, quilt, crochet, knit, or do any other creative needle arts. We meet twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month from 10:00 to 3:00. We get together at the Pollard Methodist Church at 3030 New Copeland Rd in Tyler. Everyone is welcome, so bring whatever sewing project you’re working on along with the necessary supplies. We promise to have lots of fun and be joyful all day! Please contact Corey Starkey or Lisa Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us.
