The Busy Bees are members of The United Pentecostal Church of Bethel Springs, Tn. Several years ago in 1987 you might find the Bees at the church gathered around the quilting frames on a mission of faith, quilting for the love of their church and the art of quilting. In one year (1989) they completed 90 quilts sent worldwide to support their ultimate goal of building a church building in which the Quilt Show is now presently residing. Every year the show displays approximately 200 quilts with many designs ranging from: Dresden plates, Cross and Star, Sunbonnet Sue, and Double Wedding Rings. Matter fact, some of the Busy Bees that are still with us will be present during the show to discuss paterns and memories if you have time to visit with them. Therefore, "All for the love of Quilting" is to keep the art of quilting as well as the many wonderful memories of these Busy Bees and others around the community alive.
