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 Bees,

My name is Simon Sobolewski and I am a volunteer with Parks Canada at Fort Rodd Hill National Historic Site at Colwood (the Fisgard Lighthouse is there too....).

In August we have a Living History event called, "Mobilize, Victoria!": Victorians Go to War. It will focus on the first 20 days of WW1 here in Victoria. We'll have historians dressed in civilian and military clothing of August 1914; military tents, Soldier's rations to taste, blank-firing weapons demonstations, 2 Edwardian military bands, Pipes and Drumns - lots of activities.....

So, why am I contacting The Bees? Knitting, of course!

The troops wore 2 pieces of knitted clothing and, well...try and we might, we cannot seem to find anyone who still makes them - a knitted, 7-button, collarless-cardigan and a knitted Balaclava-style cap.

We have the patterns but not the skills.

Can anyone assist us by taking these projects on for us? We would pay for materials and time....

Regards,
Simon Sobolewski
