Bee Aware!

I was contacted by a member of the Herb Society of the UK to request using one of my patterns for a charity event, Bee Aware! They plan to create a swarm of my knit bees to decorate a booth at a garden show. I am thrilled that one of my designs can contribute to this cause.

This initiative is to bring awareness to the fact that the number of bees has been declining all over the world. Herbs and Bees are beneficial to each other. The Bee Aware! page has information on what herbs you can plant to promote bees to come to your garden.

I hope to share a picture of the booth once the event takes place this summer.
