Stitch n' Pitch

Stitch N' Pitch is coming to Vermont!

Spring is here and that means baseball is in the air. Just today a customer came into the shop to get materials for all the projects she has planned to finish during the upcoming baseball season. She knits while watching the games on television and had quite a successful run of finished objects to show for the 2010 season.

Well 2011 has something in store for all of us here in Vermont! The Vermont Lake Monsters will be hosting a Stitch N 'Pitch (SM) event in Burlington, Vermont on Friday, June 24th!

Stitch N' Pitch events have been held throughout the country for a number of years. These events invite folks who enjoy a variety of needle arts to come to watch a baseball game in the company of other enthusiasts. And yes folks it is a great time to knit, crochet, embroider, cross-stitch, and more so be sure to bring along your latest project!

We are so excited that a Vermont team is participating this year... so we're giving away 18 tickets to the game on June 24th. We will be raffling these tickets to all customers who make purchases in the shop. Every time you make a purchase you get to enter your name into the drawing.

Here's how it works. We'll be drawing 2 lucky winners after the shop closes on the last day of April. Then we'll empty our drawing jar and start collecting names for the May drawing. At the close of business May 31st we'll draw 3 lucky winners from the May entries. Then we'll empty the drawing jar again and start collecting names for the June drawing. After the shop closes on June 22nd (just a few days before the big game) we'll draw 4 more winners in our final drawing.

We're going to award the tickets in pairs so that if you are a lucky winner you can take your favorite knitter or crocheter along with you. That's 9 winners and 18 tickets! Don't forget that each time you make a purchase you can enter to win a pair of tickets and each month we begin a new drawing.

This event is going to be a great chance to sit among friends, family and colleagues and cheer on your favorite baseball team. Be sure to purchase tickets in the reserved protected seating section set aside for the event. (The tickets we're giving away are reserved in this section!)

We can't wait to see you at the game!

I have attended Stitch'n'Pitch games in Toronto - go Blue Jays!! - for the last 3 years and had a blast. It is so much fun to sit in the stands, surrounded by fellow fibre fiends/friends. And sometimes we even watch the ball game!! ;-) Consider going - it's bound to be the best ball you'll see all season!!
