Stitch n’ Pitch Returns to Detroit Sept. 28


Calling all knitters, crocheters and anyone who crafts with a needle! Stitch n’ Pitch is returning to Detroit Sept. 28 for a crafty meetup at Comerica Park.

Returning for the seventh year, Stitch n’ Pitch not only brings together craft lovers at the ball park, but collects new mittens for the Michigan Veterans Foundation, located in Detroit. Whether you make them yourself or purchase a new pair, this donation goes to help a great charity.

Sponsored by The Black Sheep Knitting Guild and Mittens for Detroit, attendees may purchase a ticket to this special game here. Your admission includes a ticket in the upper box with the rest of the Detroit Stitch n’ Pitch gang as well as a souvenir T-shirt. But hurry on getting those tickets – the special pricing is good only until Aug. 28.
