Are You A Byrne's Bee???

First Tuesdays, 7pm and First Wednesdays, 10am

Are you a Byrne’s Bee??? 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. And our shared interests have certainly fostered a lot of friendships over the years. For now...all of our programs will be virtual, but, hopefully, soon we can all be together again in person! 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!" once we get back to “normal!”)

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 pur- chase at a Bee program and 50% off on any Byrne’s Bees workshop! For those of you who were members last year, we’ll be crediting you for the 3 months we missed in the spring. Sew... why aren't you a Byrne's Bee???

Check out the programs for beginning of our 2020-21 season:

Ellen Linder

June 1 & 2 - Virtual!

$25 - or FREE if you're a Bee!

Ellen Linder is an art quilter who works in a freeform collage style, while borrowing heavily from tradi- tional quilt making techniques. Ellen’s talk, Confessions of a Fabric Whisperer will tell you what do 750 pins, window screening, and paint have in common? They’ve all been used by Ellen Lindner in creative ways as she’s made art quilts. Join her in an amusing accounting of some of the wacky things she’s done over the years, some of them successful and some of them resulting in “rough drafts.” She’ll share with you why even the unsuccessful ones are useful and why she fearlessly embraces experimentation.
