Stitch & Pitch

Stitch & Pitch

Bring your needlework & come cheer the New York Mets with me June 5th at CitiField.  I’ll be leading the gang as we try to set a Guinness World Record for crocheting!  Get reduced rate tickets, early admission & more.

Love to knit, crochet, embroidery, needlepoint, etc.?  Love baseball?  So do I – so grab your knitting/needlepoint/embroidery/crochet – whatever and come out to Citifield Saturday, June 5th  as the Mets take on the Marlins.  It’s all part of (pic- stitchnpitch) Stitch & Pitch, a project of The National Needlearts Association which brings crafters to the ball park.    This year, we’ll be trying to set a Guinness World record for the most people simultaneously crocheting – and we’ll be doing it with FREE Deborah Norville yarn!  I’m suggesting we make preemie caps which we’ll donate to local hospitals – so we’ll be doing good while we have fun watching the game!  Best of all, the ticket prices are super reasonable.  Click HERE to access the Mets website. 

 I am thrilled to again be a part of Stitch n Pitch, a now nationwide effort that began when officials at the Seattle Mariners noticed a number of female workers knitting together during lunch at work and thought that might be a way to encourage more women to attend baseball games.  Imagine my thrill last August at being asked to throw out the first pitch at a Seattle Mariners.  My warm up throws were so hideous the assistant grounds keeper took it upon himself to give me some pitching instruction – in the official Mariners warm-up pen!    How’d I do?  Well, I’ve been told I pitch better than the President!  You can see the video HERE
