Wear your Easter bonnet to the Flea Market this Saturday. Here is Sheila Hubbard with her Sunday finest.

Easter Flea Market

This month’s Flea Market, which falls on the Easter long weekend, features needle crafting.

This month’s Flea Market, which falls on the Easter long weekend, features needle crafting. It is an excellent opportunity for families to bring their children and have them learn how to manage the fine art of needle and thread.

The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and takes place downstairs at Sooke’s Community Hall. The address is 2037 Shields Road, and the downstairs entrance is opposite the Sooke Royal Canadian Legion on Eustace Road.

The Flea Market will have ongoing demonstrations of knitting, crocheting, sewing, and the long-lost art of darning socks. Yes, they are mendable!

There will also be a quilt in a frame, and visitors will have an opportunity to contribute a stitch.

The Flea Market is hosted by the organizing members of the Sooke Fall Fair. Don’t let the name fool you: this group will be active throughout the year, as they are hard at work preparing for the centennial celebration of this year’s very special fair.

The Flea Market takes place on the last Saturday of every month between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at this location. Each month will feature a different theme that ties into the Sooke Fall Fair.

If you are planning on entering any of the competitions, you can get a leg up by attending the Flea Market with the relevant theme. There, you will receive tips and ideas from other experts in that specific area.

These themes will be announced in the Sooke News Mirror’s community calendar as each market approaches, or you can contact Ellen Lewers, the vice-chair of the Sooke Fall Fair, by email at mrslewersfarmhouse@shaw.ca.
