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. In addition our quild has a monthly Saturday workshop with local and national teachers.

We participate in the Jacksonville Quiltfest and have several members on the board. The Honeybee Guild host an annual weekend-long retreat with participants coming from many locations. In addition the guild has a quilting retreat for members and guest twice a year held at the Epworth Lodge, St. Simon’s Island.

The Honeybee members are proud of the charity work they have done over the years. This includes raising funds for local charities or member quilt donations to non-profits such as Hospice, Wounded Soldiers, Betty Griffen House and the Methodist Children’s home.

We encourage visitors to come to our meetings and hope you will join us in the future.
