Thursday, July 26 is Stitch 'n Pitch day at the Seattle Mariners. Sponsored by The National NeedleArts Association (TNNA), these events are happening all over the place. For the Seattle game, it's expected that around 3,000 crafters (not just knitters, but all sorts of crafters) will be in attendance. There will be vendors selling crafty items, demonstrations of crafts, teaching of crafts -- oh, and a baseball game against the Oakland As!
Thanks to Peggy and Mims over at the OregonLive K2Tog blog, I discovered that Lantern Moon is sponsoring a bus ride to the game. For just $45, you get to ride in the comfort of a luxury motorcoach from Portland to Seattle, receive what promises to be a wonderful goody bag from Lantern moon (including one of their lovely circular needles and who knows what other goodies), and tickets to the game. Now that has got to be a great deal, right? The bus will depart Hollywood West Fred Meyer, 3030 N.E. Weidler, at 2 p.m. on July 26. Game time is 7 p.m. and we'll return to Portland around 1 a.m.
There's still space available on the bus, so if you can free up your afternoon and evening on the 26th, contact Diana at Lantern Moon and make a reservation. I'll see you there! :) Now if I can just figure out which sock project to take with me!
