Stitch N' Pitch at Citi Field: Sept 21 Mets vs Braves


From the Stitch N' Pitch home page:
"What is Stitch N' Pitch?
Stitch N' Pitch brings together two wonderful traditions — Baseball and the NeedleArts. Come to a ball game and knit, crochet, embroider, cross-stitch and needlepoint. Sit among friends, family and colleagues and cheer on your favorite Baseball Team. Beginners, intermediate and experts are all welcome."
The Mets' 3rd annual Stitch N' Pitch event is scheduled for Monday, September 21 @ 7:10 pm vs. Atlanta Braves. The Group Ticketing page at mets.com contains info about this year's event at Citi Field. The ticket price for Promenade Reserved seating is $15 and all participants will receive a Citi Field Inaugural Season Scroll Pen (with advance ticket purchase).

I attended last year's Stitch N' Pitch at Shea Stadium. Most of the emphasis is on knitting and crochet, which makes sense since most projects using these techniques are very portable, and TNNA, the force behind this program, is a trade organization for professionals in the knitting, crochet, cross stitch, embroidery, needlepoint and embellishment industries.

I'm not sure if I'll be attending this year -- last year's game was so cold and rainy we actually left early. I'll probably wait to decide to go or not a few days before the game.
