Byrne's Creative Bees

First Tuesdays, 7pm and First Wednesdays, 10am

If not, why not? Each month from October through June, we host a presentation by some of the best, (and most entertaining!) teachers in some facet of sewing or quilting. Our goal is to have you learn more and love your hobby as much as we do. Additionally, we inspire each other with an awesome Show ’n Tell. And our shared interests have certainly fostered a lot of friendships over the years. Because education is important to us, in addition to the usual 20% discount on purchases at Byrne's Creative Bees programs, we'll be offering a 50% discount on any Byrne’s Bees workshop! (Look for the eligible workshops marked "Half price for Byrne's Bees!"

So, for the $90 "club fee", you'll get 9 months of fun and informative programs (Don't forget - we offer a daytime and an evening presentation each month), 20% off anything you purchase at a Bee program and 50% off on any Byrne’s Bees workshop! Sew… why aren't you a Byrne's Bee???
