The Eager BEEvers are six guild members who first met August, 2009, with the purpose of sewing quilts for charity and for guild service projects. They met monthly in the homes of the members until the Coronavirus Pandemic forced them to stop meeting in person.
Currently the BEEvers meet via Zoom one afternoon a week, but yet individually continue to sew and quilt throughout the week. Occasionally everyone works on the same project or pattern while individual projects are sewn other weeks.
The BEEvers currently support Guild service projects and Mission Central at Cedar Grove United Methodist Church (a children’s clothes closet) in Rockingham County. In the past they have also made and donated over 300 quilts to the Wrap-A-Smile Rotary Club project, over 145 quilts to A Small Hand (infant pantry), 25 quilts for community needs, 100+ blocks for quilts for North Carolina victims and 13 quilts for Houston flood victims.
In addition to the quilts mentioned above, BEEvers have sewed, quilted, and donated over 1,050 SVQG service hospice quilts and 220 quilts to Mission Central since forming the group in 2009. In addition to the quilts, they have sewn and donated many pillowcases, breast cancer pillows/totes, and surgery drainage bags also for the SVQG service program.
