Meet the Team

Suzanne Bednarchik, Owner

I am thrilled to offer The Quilting Bee to quilters of every level. This shop has been in the plans for decades, and creating this space for creativity, connection, and community with Kathleen and Lynn is a lifelong dream come true.

Recently retired from a 35-year career in human resources, I am excited to start my next chapter. Jeff and I are both Cleveland sports and Buckeye enthusiasts, and we love playing with our goldendoodle, Buddy. We enjoy life in Lakewood and the greater Cleveland area, and we cherish spending time with family and friends. I look forward to serving you!

Kathleen Repko, Operations

My path to The Quilting Bee took the scenic route. Stops included culinary school; restaurants, hotels, schools, and personal chef gigs; receptionist and office manager positions; and finally a software development boot camp. All this prepared me to be webmaster and chief organizer in this very creative environment.

I am married to Tom, and together we have two daughters, Maddie and Caroline.
Together we find joy in dogs, baseball and hockey, puns, music, and cheese.
