Quilting Bee

Join members of the Durham Orange Quilters Guild for social quilting, support, and fun. The bee is open to anyone interested, but you will need to bring your own sewing machine or handwork supplies.

If you are a beginner, the bee is a great place to quilt surrounded by other lovers of the craft and if you are an experienced quilter, you may learn some new tricks and make some new friends.
