The next Bee in the Barn at Todd Farm will be a very special gathering. Sewing bees have a long history of community gatherings for a common cause and in that spirit our next bee on March 19th will also serve as a collection site for handcrafting materials, tools, and supplies to donate to Syrian refugees.
bee: “a meeting for communal work or amusement”
Sounds like a good excuse for a get together to me, and I am thrilled to continue this ole’ time tradition in new places. Starting this June I will be hosting a monthly Bee on the Farm– a gathering of knitters, quilters, hookers, and other hand-workers of all sorts and skill levels–in the bucolic setting of Dandelion Spring and Straw Farm in Newcastle, Maine. If you are in the area, please join me for an afternoon of companionship, laughter, and progress on all your UFO’s surrounded by the fields, animals, busy farmers, and an abundant farm stand. While this is not a class, I’m happy to answer questions to the best of my ability—dabbler as I am in many things… And truly the best thing about a bee is the community and shared creativity. It is a time to be inspired by and to both learn from and teach each other.
To you folks in MA and NH who have been joining me for the Bee in the Barn in Rowley, fear not! We will continue to meet monthly admidst all the beautiful antiques, art, and fine craft that The Barn at Todd Farm has to offer. This group has been so much fun to stitch and secretly hope with that Scout(milliner/baker)shows up with her banana bread!
For a full list of dates for each venue, please see the events calendar.
I’m excited to be hosting a good old fashioned bee at The Barn at Todd Farm this coming January 31, 2016, 2-5:pm. If you’re local, grab a project and swing on by!
