Bee Buzz


Bees play a very big part in the guild.  Our bees vary in size.  The Kingwood Area Quilt Guild has several bees to choose from.  You may belong to as many bees as you wish.   Bees generally meet in public places or members' homes to share their love of quilting and make lasting friendships.  Many bees take on projects to benefit local charities. Each group determines its own scope and purpose and inspire others to try new things.  Everyone is encouraged to join in the fun.  For information about any of our bees listed below or if you are interested in starting a new bee contact the First VP Membership.

Quilting Related Information

Labeling a Quilt
It is important to document not only the quilts that you make but also family quilts and quilts you collect to preserve our quilt heritage.  A written record, complete with a photograph and provenance, will help those who come after us to know about our quilts.  Include the date and any history you can find out about the quilt when you purchase it.

When you make a quilt, always sign your work.  It is just as important for a quiltmaker to sign the work as it is for an artist to sign a painting.  The most authentic way is to quilt your name, date, and location into the quilt.  In lieu of this, you should write your name, date, location, and name of the quilt and/or description on a fabric square and attach it to the back of your quilt.

Storing a Quilt
Exposure to direct sunlight is a quilt’s biggest enemy.  The colors begin to fade or lose their “light and color fastness” after a period of time in direct sunlight.  This is one of the reasons that rotating your quilts is always a good idea.

If you are not displaying all of your quilts, it is best to store them in 100% cotton gift/storage bags or pillowcases.  Use crumpled acid-free tissue paper in the folds to help prevent creases from forming in the quilt over time.  Try not to stack too many quilts on top of each other because the weight will sometimes form a crease as well.  Periodically refolding your quilts is also a good idea.

Do not store quilts in plastic bags.  Storing a quilt in plastic not only exposes it to light, it traps dampness and increases the chances of mildew forming.    Mildew is extremely difficult to remove from quilts.
Always store quilts in a cool, dry spot.  Do not keep your quilts in the attic or in the basement.  This is the ideal way to preserve all of your treasured quilts, fiber art, needlework, and fabric heirlooms
