    • Meetings/Schedule: Meetings consist of every week briefly going over what is on our schedule. The schedule changes every year depending on what projects the members want to do/learn. The schedule is usually created in April and covers the next Nov through Apr.

    • ​The days that we have a class/project scheduled we do bring our machines to the hall and sew after the meeting and our "Show and Tell", until about 3 pm. Of the 80-90 ladies throughout the RGV that come each Thursday, Dec - April, usually 15-20 will stay and sew.

    • Every other year/season we have a quilt show that is usually in February or March.

    • Continuing with the “new normal”, the Killer Bees (a quilting group that isn’t like your grandmother’s quilting group) are still meeting via ZOOM each Thursday morning at 9 AM. If you'd like to "ZOOM" with us at 9 AM most Thursdays, let Jan Baethke (janb5099@yahoo.com) know and she'll email you the link.

    • Our ZOOM meetings cover conversations about what's happening with the Covid-19 issue, and some “Show and Tell” of what we've sewn in the past week. Sometimes we'll have a quilt-related demo.

    • I AM getting our new schedule together...with fingers crossed that we WILL be meeting in person at Retzlaff Hall next Fall, Thursday mornings at 9 AM. Here's a few of our activities for next winter: A No Sew Star Tree Ornament; Making fabric from your fabric scraps called Mile-A-Minute; a chopped fabric landscape; always a fun Mystery Quilt project; and maybe something with Jelly-Rolls!! You just have to come and see what that we do with Jelly-Rolls!!  Hope to "see" you Thursday mornings. If you have any questions, call or text 956-357-2218 (Be sure to let me know in a text who you are).
