Quilting Bees:

Quilting bees began as a way for women to combine work with pleasure in that a quilt top for a friend or family member could be quilted while information about the community, political events, recipes, parenting, quilting, etc. could be exchanged. Our bees are just as informative as those in the past, the main difference is that we usually work on our own project. However, sometimes no “work” is accomplished because we are having such a good time. Bees are held at the convenience of the hostess: day, afternoon, evening or even all-day! Children are welcome. There is a roving Tuesday morning bee, a Wednesday morning bee, a roving Thursday evening bee and a roving bee every 2nd Monday. Please check your CBQ newsletter for the contact person.
If you are planning a quilting bee, please let the Beekeeper know when and where. For the regularly scheduled bees contact the Beekeeper at Cabin Branch Quilters .

The guild will also be holding bees at Chinn Park Regional Library in its Community room at no charge.

Healing Quilts Exhibit:

On Sunday, November 20, the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Old Town Alexandria will feature an exhibition of “ Healing Quilts in Medicine”. The exhibition consists of more than 35 contemporary art quilts depicting organisms used in cancer treatment as well as cheerful topics aimed at helping cancer patients and their families pass the time more easily. The contemporary art quilters who are included in this group were hand picked by the late Judy House (Quilters Unlimited – Vienna), a local art quilter, teacher, and lecturer, whose work was recognized at local and national quilt shows. The group includes artists from across the country and from the United Kingdom. Paula Golden’s quilt, “Garlic: For Body and Soul” is part of this exhibit. 

The exhibition is free to the public and will be open from 7 to 0 PM. For more information about the Healing Quilts in Medicine project, visit After this one-night exhibition, the quilts will be donated to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center where they will no longer be available for viewing by the general public.
