CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - Do you have any old quilts that your grandma or someone in your family made?
It’s a tradition that goes back a long time but is still very popular.
In the 18th century, women got together to share the quilting work.
Quilting was seen as both a necessity to say warm but also a relaxing hobby.
Bee was another word for a party or social gathering, so you got a quilting bee.
They’re still popular today.
QC Life’s Cheryl Brayboy was in the community at Sew Much Fun! In Lowell to learn more about quilting bees.
