The new group is called the Queen Bee Quilting Club. It is not a guild, and there is no membership or annual fee to join. Just $1 when you come to offset the cost of utilities.
Good news is that this new quilt group meets on Monday evenings. I thought the evening time will be something I am able to do.
Bad news is that is that the traffic is heavy on this 2-lane road that takes you to the group location. This road takes people home to Maryland and West Virginia in the evening rush hour. Definitely not a joy to see a line of brake lights all the way up the dark road. Since I already get together on Mondays during the day with my friend, I probably will not attend this group every week on Monday evenings, but I could come once per month. The drive may not seem so bad once the Daylight Savings time kicks in and it remains lighter later in the evenings.

Although later than I hoped, I made it to the quilting group, which meets at an activity barn on the Guthrie property that is home to Joshua's Hands.
Here we are when I got there.. I think there were 11 ladies total that evening.

At least there were no cords to trip on. :-)
I brought my block #5 to do from WebFabric's BOM for February. Since I arrived late, or maybe because I was talking too much, but by the time I was done with all my cutting of the almost 50 little pieces, it was almost to the time I thought I would be leaving. I stayed a little longer and got one little bowtie piece done.
Not much progress to show for the night, but I did enjoy the group, meeting new friends and chatting with others who enjoy quilting too!
