CEF & The Steveston Village Knitters Part 2

by Cale Simpson, CEF Social Media Coordinator

Yet again the Steveston Village Knitters, who meet every Tuesday @10am at Waves Coffee on Bayview Street in Steveston, have found a way to contribute their unique talents and compassion to CEF.  Our first partnership was for the Prenatal/Post delivery program in Guatemala that took place earlier in 2011.  Most recently the Village Knitters donated one-of-a-kind pieces that were sold at two community craft fairs in the lower mainland.  Some of the fine crafted items included felted hand bags, iPad sleeves, and children's sweaters, along with colourful socks, scarves, quilts, and jewellery.  Both CEF's Executive Director, Susan McDonald and photographer Suzanne Rushton can attest to the excellent quality of the Village Knitters products as they were given a chance to see their crafts prior to the craft fairs.
 From all of us at CEF, we would like to send a big, heartfelt thank you to all the Steveston Village Knitters!   Ladies, you really gave everyone a wonderful holiday gift by devoting your time and energy to creating such wonderful crafts and theny donating all of the proceeds from your events to support our work.   Thank you again ladies for your contributing your talents!
