this is a great idea ... as the host of a couple, i get a LOT of requests from people wondering how to get involved. i usually try to play matchmaker if i know of a bee opening up, but i'm happy to see there's now a dedicated place to send people!

Thanks everyone! Please feel free if you happen to do a post on your blog about the bees you're currently in - to direct people over here if they want to try to hook up with others wanting to start a new bee!

Clicky the Moose says:

I am starting a virtual quilt bee. It is called Snip.Sew.Send and has a blog at snipsewsend.blogspot.com.

Right now we are gathering members, but I know we need at least 2 more members. If you are interested in joining our group, please send me flickr mail with your e-mail address. I would like to keep all the members in the USA, just for time and postage cost reasons.

This bee will run similar to the others, nothing too different. I hope to get everything set and ready to send the first fabrics by the beginning of June and run through June 2010 skipping December.

Thanks!

I'm starting one called Live Piecefully and I'm looking for a bunch of new members. Regular rules apply...12 people, a block a month, you know the drill.

The flicker group is www.flickr.com/groups/1107147@N23/ or check out my blog post at rippingoutseams.blogspot.com.

Have been toying with the idea of setting up a quilting bee group specifically for kid themed quilts. Would pretty much be the traditional setup with a couple little twists. Send me a flickrmail if you might be interested and if it seems like there is enough interest, I will go ahead and set up the group :)!!!!!

Quilting Barbie and I have started two sections of a Stash Busting Bee.

The US-only group is full, but there is still room for 10 participants located anywhere willing to send anywhere (International group).

This quilting bee will work slightly different from some others; the Sender will send only one piece of fabric to each Quilter, who will then use their stash to complete the block.

Read the detailed "rules" and perhaps join us:

Lots of freedom for this one!
