The Quilting Bee is an independently-owned quilt shop located in Spokane Valley, WA, where it has been for over 40 years. We like to say we are locally owned and inspired! Owners Scot and Treasure Auble carry on the legacy of an exemplary customer experience, extensive selection and quality, and outstanding machine sales and service options.
We are working with the American Sewing Guild, Spokane Fire Department and Spokane County Health to make approved facemasks. Supplies for both the Fire Department Project and your own project have arrived at The Bee! As of April 1st we are now down to just having the Polypro fabric available. As you can see below the Fire Department has modified their preferred design to a full elastic head wrap. They will accept other designs and fabric, but this is their preferred design.
We were honored to donate five bolts of Polypro and elastic bundles for your personal use or other charities. This has all been picked up and we are sure it will be put to good use. Way to go, all of you.

PLEASE make sure if you are using any of the supplies donated by the Fire Dept, we NEED to have all the masks dropped off at one of the drop off locations. These are not for personal use.
You may drop off your completed masks or pick up supplies here at The Bee weekdays between 10AM and Noon. They request you deliver them in a close-able plastic bag of some sort. They will then be sanitized and delivered. Let’s make it happen!
As of the morning of the 25th we will be closed for two weeks per Governor Inslee’s order. We understand you have sewing needs, and we need you. But for the safety of you and our employees we will be completely closed, as required by law. The Governor ordered complete closure of non-essential business, and we will fully comply. Therefore no internet sales, curbside delivery of phone orders, etc. will be available. We will come back strong, healthy and ready to help you continue creating. Be well. We are already missing you.
Because the facemask project is temporarily an essential need, we will open the lobby from 10:00am to 12:00 noon each weekday for drop off of completed masks and pickup of any materials that become available. This service will continue until we are asked to discontinue. We will inform you when that occurs.
Thank you all for being part of the Quilting Bee family. We will all get through this, together!
Treasure, Scot and the staff of The Quilting Bee.
