Bees as a theme in our crafts. Why do we love them so?

There's something about bees. We know how essential they are to our planet. We know how hard they work. And we know how just plain cute they are when adorning our fiber arts! 

I love little handwork projects, and Kathy Schmidt's newest book, Tiny Treasures is just perfect for that. Go to our product listing and zoom in on the back cover image for a close-up of just one tiny embroidery design — a bee hive and two little bees. Pick from 72 miniature hand embroidery designs in this 16-page, colorful booklet.

Or, if you're in the mood for a big project that will keep you interested and busy as a bee for a good long time, check out the Honeycomb Foundation Paper Pieced Quilt Pattern by Judy Niemeyer of Quiltworx. The design includes five sections that have been standardized so you can use interchangeable blocks in each space. The finished size of this quilt is 118 inches square.
