Tuesdays @ Habit Coffee On Yates
by Mary (marydotmusic)
at January 25th, 2012 (11:43 am)

Hello there lovelies!

Unfortunately, Cornerstone has a new event going on every Tuesday night until the end of March, so we’re knitting at Habit for the time being.

Last night we were sitting in the back corner with the benches. Smaller space, but a bit more comfy than the big long table in the middle of the room. If the place is really busy, we could move out into the actual Atrium. So look for us there if you don’t see us in the coffee shop itself.

Tuesdays @ Habit Coffee on Yates St in the Atrium.

Got it? Good. :) Mark it on your calendars!

Thanks! See you Tuesday!!!
Mary

Hello and Welcome!
by Mary (marydotmusic)
at August 11th, 2011 (12:16 pm)

Welcome!

If you're new here (Thanks for dropping by!), a lurker (Perhaps you'll join us one day?) or a regular Bee (Tuesday and Friday nights!) - Hello! Since so many people have come and gone over the years, I tend to get the question, "How long has this been going on?" So, I thought I'd do a quick post on who we are and our history.

Our group was formed in 2006 by Vanessa Carter (aka Nessa). I met Nessa online here on Livejournal and we became online friends. Not long after, we decided to meet up at a coffee shop to knit together. Soon after, the Bees were born and we got this site up to see if we could gather more knitters together and create a community.

A barista once asked us if we were a knitting bee (a 19th century term for a knitting party) or a stitch 'n bitch (a phrase used as early as WWII, but became popular with the 2003 release of Debbie Stoller's "Stitch 'n Bitch: The Knitter's Handbook"). We told him we were both and became the Bitchy Bees.

So many people have joined us in one form or another since 2006. Visitors from another city, country, and even continent. Former Victorians visiting family. New Victorians having just moved here. Some drop in for one night only, others come and knit when it fits their schedule, and finally, those who show up each and every week that make the core of the Bees.

Today, this group is still what attracted me to it in the first place. A place where any fibre lover can get together to share their ideas, widsom, and company. Whether you only know how to knit - but perhaps not purl - or have been knitting since you were 2, we welcome you to join us. With our drop in policy, some nights it can be a group of 2 or we've even had just over 20 people at one time!

So if you want to share our love of knitting and yarn or only know how to crochet (Or even drop spindle or needlework - we've had those fibre arts too!) come join us each and every Tuesday and Friday night.

When? Where?
Every Tuesday at Cornerstone Cafe in Fernwood (corner of Gladstone and Fernwood.)
6pm'ish to whenever (We usually take off before 9pm since it’s a school/work night.)

Every Friday at Serious Coffee in Cook St Village (corner of Cook & Oxford across the street from the Beagle Pub)
6pm to whenever (they close at 10pm)

Like knitting, our online presence has evolved. This online community is more for official announcements. Most of our members are active on Ravelry. We welcome you to join us there.

Happy Knitting!

by Mary (marydotmusic)
at July 13th, 2011 (10:22 am)

Hey there Knitters!

EDIT TO ADD: DATE CHANGE!

Long time no see! I've been so caught up with hockey and moving and work and... and... and... that I've totally missed scheduling beer knitting! So after a chat last night at knitting, with people going away in the coming weeks, we thought we'd better have a beer knit night RIGHT AWAY!

Without further ado:

  • Thursday, July 21st

  • 6pm

  • Spinnakers

  • Note that Spinnakers automatically adds 15% gratuity to parties of 8 or more. Please check your bill before paying.


Please either RSVP with a comment on this post (LJ/Facebook/Twitter/Google can be used) or over on Ravelry.

Got it? Now that you've put that in your calendar, see you there!

Show Tuesday Night
by Mary (marydotmusic)
at February 14th, 2011 (03:17 pm)

Rachael Cardiello is playing at the Cornerstone Tuesday night (that's tomorrow). All I know it's at 7:30pm and the last time she played at the Cornerstone a couple of years ago, it was free. So bring your knitting and stay for a night of good music to sway to.

Not promoting the artist (I've never seen her live and just enjoyed her music online), but thought I would mention it here in case knitters were wondering what's going on that night. Categorized as acoustic, alternative, indie, find her tunes here: http://www.myspace.com/rachaelcardiello She's a violist with some amazing vocals.

See you there!
Mary
