Small Groups / Quilting Bees

Small Groups (or Bees) are a great way to get together with other quilters in a more intimate and informal atmosphere for friendship, conversation, and quilting. They make attending our monthly meetings more enjoyable, as you will begin to recognize familiar faces. Anyone can set up a small group. Each group decides its size and focus. The Beekeeper is available to help members with similar interests or locations find each other. If you are interested in forming a group or adding members to your group, email the She will contact you and help connect you with other members.

Art Quilters of Plano (AQOP)

The Art Quilters of Plano meet on the 4th Saturday of each month at 9:00am. There are no membership requirements, simply an interest in Art quilting and a desire to learn. Our typical meeting starts with sharing our completed art work, often employing a technique or challenge from a previous meeting. We follow that with a demo or workshop provided by our members. For more information contact any member of the Art Quilters of Plano or Lori Hutyra.
Fabric Fanatics
624 Haggard St., #706

Dallas Quilters Marathon

This group meets several times a year for 3-day Day Retreats (Friday morning to Sunday afternoon). Please visit the Facebook page Dallas Quilters Marathon and request membership to join the fun. Or you can contact Janet Plotkin for more information. These retreats are a great way to spread out for a big project, get inspired or championed to finish the next step, and meet some new sewing friends. You do not have to be a member of QGPlano to attend the Day Retreat, but we would encourage you to give the Guild a try; we have a lot to offer.
