Visitors are welcome at the Busy Bee Quilters' guild meetings held every third Thursday of the month @The Bridge Church, 2500 Lake Ave, Snohomish WA----The day meeting from noon to 3pm*, is casual, focusing on social gathering and handwork with a short business meeting, most times followed by a special program or speaker, often repeated at the evening meeting from 7-9, with the doors reopening at 6:30pm. A brief business meeting again precedes the program or speaker. (Please check the calendar for the program.) Evening snacks and beverages are provided. (*Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch or snacks to the day meeting as none are provided.)----Directions: Just south of Hwy 2 on Hwy 9, turn east at the light onto 56th Street (between the 76 Gas station and King Charley's Burgers). Then turn right at the first 4 way stop sign onto Lake Ave. Turn right into the first church on the right, ~3 tenths of a mile.)
Each year Busy Bee Guild members produce a quilt to raffle to raise funds to promote quilting.
Ask about how you can help. The raffle was held November 21, 2013 at 8pm at the Bridge church in Snohomish, WA by the Busy Bee Quilters' Guild......and the winner is..............Dennis Johnson of Mukilteo WA who purchased 60 tickets and is the 'significant other' of Busy Bee Member, Joyce Shields.
