The Eager BEEvers are six guild members who first met in August of 2009 with the purpose of sewing quilts for charity and for guild service projects. They meet monthly in the homes of the members, yet sewing and quilting continues throughout the month by individuals in their homes. Some months they all work on the same project or pattern while other months individual projects are done.
The BEEvers currently support Guild service projects, A Small Hand (infant pantry), and Mission Central at Cedar Grove United Methodist Church (a children’s clothes closet). In the past they have also made and donated over 300 quilts to the Wrap-A-Smile Rotary Club project.
Since 2009 to date BEEvers have sewed, quilted, and donated over 600 quilts for SVQG’s projects, 111 quilts to Mission Central, over 145 quilts to A Small Hand, and 25 quilts for community needs. In addition to the quilts, they have sewn and donated pillowcases and breast cancer pillows/totes for SVQG, and 100+ blocks for quilts for North Carolina flood victims.
