September 15-17 - Quiltfest at The Prime Osborne Convention Center
October 6 to 9 - Quilting Retreat at Lake Swan, Melrose
Welcome to the Honeybee Quilter’s Website. The Mandarin area, evening guild was established over 25 years ago and is part of the 7 Sisters Quilters Guilds in the Jacksonville area. We meet on the 1st Tuesday of each month and have loads of fun but also learn so much about quilting. The monthly meetings may include the annual Ugly Auction, Birthday Party or our Holiday party along with quilting instructional meetings with area teachers.
We participate in the Jacksonville Quiltfest and have several members on the board. Twice a year members and guests are invited to attend a quilting retreat held at Epworth Retreat Center on St. Simon’s Island.
The Honeybee members are proud of the charity work they have done over the years. This includes either raising funds for local charities or quilt donations to non-profits such as Hospice, Wounded Warriors, Betty Griffin House, Manadarin Food Bank, the Jacksonville Apple Project and the Methodist Children’s Home. The 2015 Charity Quilt brought in $1800.00 for charities.
We welcome visitors to come to the monthly meetings and hope you will join us in the future.
We currently have a project to donate sewn pillowcase to a children's charity - bring finished cases to Pat Guilford or Jeanie Jacobson. In addition we are collecting donations of anti-ouch pouches for breast cancer surgery patients.
