Stitch and Pitch, plus we’re moving Friday the 13th

Here’s a sign that spring is finally here: It’s time to get your tickets for Stitch and Pitch at Nationals Park.

The annual knit-in-public event, part of a program sponsored by The National NeedleArts Association, will take place this year on Friday, May 13. The game, starting at 7:05 p.m., will feature the Nats versus the Florida Marlins.

Tickets this year will cost $23. That’s an increase from last year, but the seats are better–left field mezzanine–and for the first time are on the same level as the Needlework Expo. The expo, in Conference Rooms 3 and 4, will feature vendors and instruction. This year, vendors will include Sanguine Gryphon, Dragonfly Fibers, Neighborhood Fiber Company and Solitude. The expo will be open from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

We will have tickets in the shop after April 22, but we’d appreciate it if you’d reserve your tickets as soon as possible. Prepayment will guarantee you a ticket, since we’re being very conservative this year about the number of tickets we request (we have to pay the full amount–we make no profit on Stitch and Pitch tickets). Call us at 301-779-3399 or stop by the store.

Here’s another important announcement: because the only Friday the 13th of 2011 falls on the night as the game, we’re moving our party and sale (everything in the shop will be 20 percent off from 9 p.m. to midnight) one week later, to May 20. We promise that despite the date change we’ll have the same Friday the 13th spirit–and lots of refreshments.
