                       Quilting Demonstration Schedule
Every weekend during “Quilting Natural Florida II,” the Quilters of Alachua County Day
Guild will host quilting demonstrations and workshops (or “bees”) at the Florida
Museum. A quilting bee is a group of quilters who meet on a regular basis to focus on a
particular aspect of quilting. Bees offer time to learn many techniques and tips, as well
as encouragement and support for new and experienced quilters alike.

If you’re interested in joining a Bee, call Gloria Comstock, 352-335-1729.
