Stitch ‘N Pitch 2011!

Toronto Stitch ‘N Pitchers

Stitch ‘N Pitch is fast approaching! This year our fibre-sportsmashup is being held on Wednesday July 20th.  If you’ve never been to a Stitch ‘N Pitch, it’s it’s a big get-together for needle arts enthusiast, conveniently located at a baseball game (it’s the only venue that can seat all of us and also serves beer). 

There will be giveaways for the first 600 people who pass through the gate (although they don’t tend to run out), plus a plethora of prizes and maybe some other freebies. I love freebies!  

The Street Knit Project will be in attendance this year, collecting hand made outerwear for Toronto’s homeless. Knit designer Amy Swenson will also be joining us on the field at the7th Inning Stretch. Finally, there’s a contest for Stitch ‘N Pitch kids to join Amy on the field!

The tickets are available at the store, they’re just a flat price of $20 (but you have to pay cash). You can also get the tickets online, but they’ll service charge you at least an extra 5 bucks per ticket.
