Our Wooly Ewes Bee are inviting new members to join their Bee. They meet the 1st Thursday of each month at A Nimble Thimble, 1 pm. If you have never worked with wool and would like to try it, just show up during their meeting time and see what the ladies are working on, get some instruction, and give it a try. You will be welcomed. All supplies may be purchased at A Nimble Thimble and Crafts and Quilting also carries some wool packs. Small projects like pin cushions, table toppers, and small wall hangings can be made without buying yardage of wool. It’s easy to take on road trips or for stitching while watching television. But if you are wanting to make quilts, there are some wonderful patterns. Wool and flannel pair nicely together.
I hope you enjoy seeing the pieces shown and consider trying something new or bring your wool project and spend time stitching with others and making new friends.
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.
