This season of Stitch N’ Pitch, sponsored by the National NeedleArts Association, will be wrapping up TONIGHT as needlecrafters of all kinds come to Shea Stadium in New York for one of the Mets’ last games in the historic stadium.
Stitch N’ Pitch is a series of national events that brings together all needle arts lovers at major and minor league baseball games. Last year’s Mets game against the Braves sold over 800 discounted tickets to crafters who knit, crochet, embroider, cross-stitch, and needlepoint, and this year’s event promises to be even better. There will be expo tables set up in the Concourse for tips, techniques, and lessons before the game.
In addition to enjoying two favorite pastimes of baseball and needle-arts, crafters will be able to make baby caps for the Knit One, Save One initiative launched by Save the Children and the Warm Up America! Foundation. It’s a great opportunity to “pitch in” for a good cause while having a good time.
Just like last year, members of the Lion Brand family will be there once again to craft, chat, and have a great time. We hope to see you there! And for those of you who don’t live in the New York area, we’ll be sharing pictures from the event in a couple of days, so keep an eye on the blog!
