Quilting Bees

From the Lake Co Parks website:

Quilting Bees

Deep River County Park on the fourth Sunday of the month

Sunday, August 22, September 26, October 24
1-4 p.m.


Just like apple pie and baseball, quilting is truly an American tradition. Volunteers continue to enjoy this craft by donating blocks and assembling them into a unique piece of art. They have worked through the spring and summer sewing blocks for their next quilt, The Honey Bee.

The ‘Friendship Star’ quilt may be seen as it nears completion, after which it will join other recently-completed quilts, ‘The Corn Quilt’, ‘The House Quilt’, ‘Sunbonnet Sue’, ‘Goodie Jars in Grandma’s Pantry - Food’, ‘Goodie Jars in Grandma’s Pantry - Other’, and ‘Lotsa-Potsa Flowers’, currently on exhibit throughout Wood’s Historic Grist Mill.

Stop by during a Quilting Bee, sit a spell, or put in your own stitches.
