Quilting: Killer Bees


(2021-04 Newsletter) From the Killer Bees - 

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 ( 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).

(2019-12-01 Newsletter) KILLER BEES - 

Come and see what the Thursday morning quilting group - The Killer Bees - is busy doing! FYI...We are not your "Grandmother's quilting group!!  Coming up in December we will be sewing a Poncho using fleece. We don't sew every Thursday, but we do have a very busy schedule with lots of fun and interesting projects to try. We start at 9AM in Retzlaff Hall with a very casual and short meeting reviewing what's coming up on our schedule, and then have “Show and Tell”. If we do have a day of sewing, we usually sew into the early afternoon. Any questions??? then call Jan Baethke or Diane Tewell.
