In the spirit of ages-old quilting bees...

JUST BEE was created in the nostalgic style of quilting bees as a response to requests from crafters in search of intergenerational gatherings. These craft circles aim to connect community members of all ages for crafting and story sharing.
Each meeting will have a unique craft theme. No experience in the specific craft is required! Each circle will be led by experienced crafters wishing to share their skills with a new generation.

Already working on a project of the same craft? Come and work in community!

Those interested in starting a new project are encouraged to create a handmade item to be donated to the church’s holiday outreach programs later this year. A list of supported organizations and desired items will be available at Just Bee events.

Do you enjoy a craft you don't see listed here? Teachers needed for future events! Contact us today!
