IIDA NY: Sustainable Quilting Bee

It’s that time again. The kick-off meeting will be held 10/26 at Herman Miller. The meeting starts at 6pm. Get out your needles and make your peers proud. Let Abigail know if you want to be a part of this years Bee. Abigail_french@hermanmiller.com

The Sustainable Design Forum hosted its First Annual Sustainable Quilting Bee in February 2008 to create quilts from discarded and discontinued fabric samples. In the tradition of quilting guilds the aim of this group is twofold: to find new homes for what would have been discarded and to offer an opportunity for community outside of our stressed and scheduled lives. The group of 20 participants met monthly to discuss, critique and assist each other with projects. The IIDA NY Chapter is pleased to have been able to auction 21 quilts since 2008. Proceeds from the Annual Quilt Auctions are donated to local charities.

It’s that time again.  Below is information on the kick-off meeting for the 6th Annual IIDA Sustainable Quilting Bee. If you’ve never quilted before this might be the time to experiment, with your peers. If you have this might be a great creative outlet for you. Please, if you’re interested plan on attending the first Bee of the season. If you are going to attend let me know and I will add you to the list, for the security desk.
