A New Era

Hi and welcome to our new blog!!!!

Bee Blessed is a charity quilting bee which presently meets monthly in Christian Fellowship Church, Belfast.  It was started in 2011 by the very talented Sarah and Judith and was borne out of their love for sewing together with friends.  Their aim was to create quilts and other little projects to bless and comfort those who are going through a tough time by giving them something to remind them that they are cared about.  

Life’s twists and turns mean that unfortunately Sarah and Judith are unable to continue leading the group but.......it’s not the end!!  We have had such a fun and rewarding time both sewing together (not to mention chatting, eating yummy food, laughing and learning) and knowing that ultimately we would be handing the quilts over to a new home......that we can’t stop!! Our last get together was in June and we will be taking a break over the summer, meeting again in September 2015.  It was sad saying goodbye to Sarah and Judith but no doubt they’ll be popping in to join us when life settles down again.

We had a ball at our last meeting in June...




....a vintage tea party no less. 


We even managed to squeeze in a group photograph of those of us who could make the last meeting.. so here we are...


Left to right: Kelly, Ruth, Judith, Lorraine, Sarah, Angie, Ros, Heather and Marion  (that's not all of us)



Until now we have been fantastically supported by Sarah and Judith’s bloggy friends contributing regularly by sending in blocks and unwanted fabric, and we have heard whisperings that this may continue.  Whoop whoop and thank you in advance...we would love your participation and it would be great to get to know you.
