Save the Dates

Some fun needle events coming up this summer...

Every 1st Wednesday of the month, the Lockport Public Library hosts Hooks & Needles from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. I've gone a couple of times and it's a nice, low-key stitch and bitch - multi-generational and free cookies - how bad can that be?

Head to Milwaukee on June 21st for Stitch & Pitch - combining a night of baseball with needlecraft - not too weird! We LOVE Milwaukee and Miller Park is an awesome venue for baseball. We've been up there once already this year and plan to head out a couple more times before the season ends. And while you must have a beer and a brat, save room for all the other great food north of the cheddar curtain. I saw a plate of cheese curds that I'm definitely getting next time. Other teams participate in Stitch & Pitch as well - Chicago White Sox (Sept 10th) - check for schedules.

And finally - Stitches Midwest comes to the Renaissaince Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center August 26-28th. The Mac Daddy of needlecraft shows, there are classes and seminars or just wander around the exhibit floor loading up on all the new yarn and information out there. This one is a bit daunting, but this may be my year to brave the crowds.


  1. Stitch and Pitch - that's awesome :) What's next, I wonder - Stitch and Kitsch, maybe? Anyway, the tab is up. I could change it to Local Events, if you think that would be better.

  2. I think Events is fine. I'll probably stick to regional stuff unless there's something truly noteworthy out of the area.
