As I was reading my brand-spanking-new issue of Adorn, I saw a wee blurb on Stitch ‘n’ Pitch, maybe the niftiest craft-sport crossover I’ve ever heard of. Or possibly the ONLY craft-sport crossover I’ve ever heard of… Did someone say Cracker Jack?!
The concept is pretty simple: Go to a baseball game and work on a needle-based project, no matter if it’s embroidery, knitting, cross stitch, etc. Photos from previous games look like the crafters were having a lot of fun, so make sure to check out the web site for more details. Dates are already being scheduled for the 2007 season, but as of now the Tigers are without an outfield of crafters. Who knows, maybe we can put out the call to schedule one in the Motor City?
P.S. Speaking of Adorn>, I loved the feature on Shrinky Dink-esque jewelry. Perhaps the editors read Steph’s Council C story on the same topic last year!
