A gang of women wielding needles | Letters, Dec. 20

As a dedicated eavesdropper, my understanding is that the dangling Bee (Dec. 10, page A3) is a gang insignia and is designed to signal to others that the gang – or hive in this case – is active in the area.

When the bee is spotted, people should proceed with caution; they have been warned. The gang in question is a roving group of senior women who swarm weekly in a knitting circle, or in gang parlance, a “sewing bee.”

These women wield needles and should be considered dangerous.
