About Us

This is the webpage for a quilt "bee" that meets in Chicago, Illinois.

We meet at Mayfair Presbyterian Church at Ainslie and Kostner Avenue, 4358 W. Ainslie.
Meetings are Thursdays from 1 to about 5 pm. 

The purpose of our group is to bring people together to share a common interest in quilting and other handcrafts where knowledge and friendships can be shared. We provide members with a creative outlet, a method of stress management and emotional and spiritual support as well as community outreach. 

Some activities are:

Cooperative and individual sewing of quilts and other items to be donated. 
Informal quilt help from more experienced quilters.
Twice yearly quilt retreats.
Quilt-a-thons: a whole day devoted to sewing and learning new things.
Holiday parties.
Occasional "road trips".
