Bees

Need a new project? Got some spare time? Bees (small quilting groups related to the guild) are a great way to make some new friends, finish some of those works in progress or just sit and swap stories! Many meet regularly and new groups are forming now. For more information about bees, contact the “queen bee” at bees@longmontquiltguild.org.
