|STITCHING N’ PITCHING N’ WRENCHING FOR CHARITY|
“Quirky” STITCH N’ PITCH event promotes knitting, crocheting, and stitching at Major and Minor League baseball games!
Stitch N’ Pitch is batting up for its’ sixth year as one of the most successful needlearts consumer events in the country. The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) has partnered with Major League and Minor League Baseball to host people who love to knit, crochet, cross-stitch, embroider, needlepoint, spin and weave. These promotional events attract thousands of “Stitch N’ Pitch fans” every year who sit together in a large group and work on their needlearts projects during a special designated game.
In addition to promoting the baseball game ticket sales in their shops, Merlin 200,000 Mile Shops have stepped up to the plate to help raise additional donations for Children’s Home + Aid through two separate initiatives as follows:
So, mark the date on your calendar! Local stitchers and baseball fans, guilds and groups will come by car, bus and train to be a part of this needlearts tradition - Stitch N’ Pitch – the perfect double play!
