Bee Creative

There is something beautiful about the honeybee and the beehive.   Both are so important to our world.

With this collection, Deb Strain (from Moda) has presented a vintage reflection of a bee-theme using quotations and typeface, and combined it with a more contemporary collection of patterns and designs. 

We carry 1/2 Yard Paks, yardage and charm squares!
