Did you know that a “bee” can mean “a gathering of people for a specific purpose?” Quilting bees, husking bees, spinning bees and others were common in colonial New England, often as a social, as well as productive gathering. The Trumbull HIstorical Society, 1856 Huntington Tpke., will be carrying on the tradition.

Every last Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m., they will hold a get together at the “hive” (THS) to work on existing projects, share ideas and friendship.

No need to register; just bring yourself, some handwork, and a friend.  Others with experience quilting, knitting, crocheting, etc. will be in the group, so they just may have answers to some of your questions (or know how to get them!).

Cost: $5 and includes tea+;

The First “bee” will be held on Wednesday, March 26.
