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!
I'd like to do another bee :-)

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.

Snip.Sew.Send. is full (thanks to this discussion)!

Ripping Out Seams, great bee name! I had to turn away several people so you should have any trouble getting members! Good luck!

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!
Started and filled the Sew Kid at Heart Quilting Bee here:

But because I have additional interest am thinking of starting a second round. If there is anyone else out there interested let me know :) !!!

Okay, we are lightening up the 'rules' for the International side of the Stash Busting Bee...

There is now no limit on the number of bees you are participating in! This is a great way to share your stash!

The Stash Busting Bee mentioned above is still looking for two more people to fill in the International Group (although most of the people in it are in the US or Canada, if that helps to sway you!) You can be located anywhere as long as you are willing to ship anywhere.

I'm still interested in joining a group. I was on that list and did not recieve a flicker mail. I did change my name. It was Mrssippi now its sweetteamom. Which also happens to be the name of my blog. So let me know I could try and host something if someone lets me know how to go about it.

Littletykesmomma-that's what I did and it still won't work. Is there supposed to be a drop down in the To: line? I am wondering if it doesn't like Firefox and I can't get IE to work on this machine so I can't try that.

I have had a couple people contact me. If the ones that contacted Meaganita want to contact me and there is enough I can start a second bee.
