Quilting Bee 2022 - Salem



Count down with us to the launch of the amazing quilt you’re going to construct with this year’s Quilting Bee fabric line. It’s called Earth Views and it’s designed by artist and astronaut Karen Nyberg!

If you complete your mission and pick up all of the blocks, you will receive a surprise bonus! (If not, there will be a small fee for the final block.)

What is Quilting Bee?

Quilting Bee is our block-of-the-month program. It’s really, really fun!         


  • On the third Saturday of each month, we will have a quilt block kit available for you to pick up at no charge between the hours of 10 and 3. Your kit will contain the fabric needed to build your block.
  •          You search for the pieces of the quilt block hidden around the store. It’s a scavenger hunt!
  •          If you are unable to pick up the block on the 3rd Saturday of the month between 10 and 3, then you can get the block any time after that for a fee of $5 (no exceptions!).
  •          You may send a non-Quilting Bee participant in to pick up your block, but you cannot have a friend pick it up who is participating in the Quilting Bee. (It is great fun to see the spouse looking for pieces.)
  •          Sometime in January or February the following year, we have a great big party and hang all the quilts up ahead of time that are completed per the rules (handed out on the first quilting bee).
  •          Those quilts that follow the rules will be eligible for a drawing which includes prizes that will shock and amaze you!
  •          To participate all you must do is sign up and show up. Please do register because we need to know how many kits to cut.
  •          In 2022, we have a bonus for you that goes with the mystery last block! If you pick up (on-time or not) ALL of the previous blocks and come in on-time for the last block, you’ll receive the bonus for free. Otherwise, there will be a small fee. You WILL want the bonus item.
EXTRA SPECIAL BONUS NEW THIS YEAR: If you do not want to make a quilt top, you can still participate by making a GARMENT! The garment needs to be a wearable adult size and has to be primarily made from Earth Views fabrics. Kona Solids and Grunge may also be included. The garment can, but is not required, to contain quilting or any of the 8 blocks. (Do not register for the Quilting Bee if you are making a garment. All you will need to do it submit by the deadline and purchase your party ticket.)

So:
  1.        Register for Quilting Bee. (It’s free!) We’re running May-December in 2022.
  2.        Pick up your block kit on the third Saturday of the month 10-3. ($5 late fee.)
  3.        Assemble the 8 block kits, design your own block and put together an amazing quilt top.
  4.        Register and attend the party (small fee) for fellowship and prizes!


We start in May 2022.
