To bee or not to bee?

Too bee or not to bee. That is the question I have been contemplating.

I found the online blogging world back in June and since then I have read many posts about the virtual sewing bees that people have been in. I have always thought how neat I wonder what that is all about. Well now that 2011 is coming to an end it seems that there quite a few bees that I could take part in. However the question then is to bee or not to bee?

I think it would be fun, but I don't know much about quilting or rather making any thing. So what if I join one and it’s something I can't do?

Or even worse I can do it. But it’s not very good...that will likely be the case...lol I am all about doing something when I am just the person stuck with the end result...but from what I have seen online there are some pretty amazing quilters out there and then there is me...lol

On the plus side what if I can do it or it challenges me to learn something new! That’s the exciting part!
My health holds me back since some days I can't cope very well so I get the whole what if I'm too sick to get anything done so I just don't join...but I think that's an easy trap that I don't want to fall in.

Does anyone out there in blog land have some advice on whether to join one or not. Was it worth your time? Was it a good experience? Was it too expensive? Any feedback good or bad would be great!

Now I am off to finish up those little soap bottle aprons....wish me luck J

  2. Anytime you join a "group" there are going to be days when you are glad you did and some days you will think you lost your mind doing it...One thing I can guarantee you is that you will learn something! even if it's not about sewing..it will be dealing with what comes up.
    Just be cautious.

  3. There may be some amazing quilters out there, but they all had to start somewhere. I would say go for it, join one if it appeals to you. If you get stuck on anything there are plenty of people out in blogland who will try to help.

  4. The quilts I've made have been very basic. I have thought of joining a bee but have just gotten up the nerve.

    Good luck!!
