Charlotte Crocheters’ 2nd annual Stitch n Pitch
Charlotte Knights vs. Buffalo Bisons
Saturday June 29th 2013
 
Our 2nd annual Stitch n Pitch is coming up!  If you don’t know what a Stitch n Pitch is, it is where we sit together in the stands, watch the Charlotte Knights play baseball, and crochet!  We draw for prizes throughout the game and watch the fireworks after the game! 
 
The game starts at 7:15 pm and everyone is welcome to bring their family and friends!  Of course you can just meet us there if you just want to drive on your own.
 
Seating:
We will be sitting in the General Admission section 106 in the upper nosebleed level.  There is an elevator and it is also handicap accessible.
 
Tickets:
Tickets are either $8 or $9 per person (depending where you look online).  I can’t find anywhere on the website how much they are if bought at the stadium.  In one place it says $9 for adults and $8 for seniors but when you go to buy them, they are $8 ea.

Car pooling:
We will leave promptly at 6:00 pm from Five Guys so please RSVP if you want to meet us there to car pool or just drive with us.  I will need to know if you will be a rider or a driver for the carpooling
 
Parking:
Parking is $5 CASH per car.  Since parking is $5 a car, please give your driver your fair share for the parking and gas.

An FYI on the Fibre fair that was to be held next month.  It was canceled and this is the info I received on it:
Creatively Dyed Yarn
For personal reason I have to delay Charlotte Fiber Festival until later on this year. My presence is required elsewhere during that same time period that I couldn't foresee when the dates for the show was originally created. To the vendors who have already signed up for the inconvenience you will receive an extra booth.

An email will be sent to everyone with the new dates as soon as they become available.

Tuesday we are doing Tunisian crochet or otherwise known as the afghan stitch. For those that know the basic Tunisian stitch, I'm also going to bring some advanced Tunisian stitch patterns as well! So bring some practice yarn and your Tunisian hooks and join us Tuesday night at Five Guys from 5:30pm-8:30pm.

Wow!!! Things remembered welcomed us with open arms. They gave us a discount and Joy talked about the different yarns. She had cider, coffee and cookies too! We then went to Longcreek mills. If anyone needs cotton yarn, like OMGosh!!!! They had the spools of cotton for $4.99. They also had huge and I mean over a foot in diameter spools in white and white crochet thread in spools around 8" in diameter! Went to Tony's for lunch then Hobby Lobby. Was disappointed that their Hobby Lobby is not any better than ours anymore. Off to Mary Jo's and lots of buttons to look at. Found broomstick lace needles, Clover Steel hooks and animal eyes! A good day had by all I believe...

Story
Introduction
My name is Sue!  I moved to the Charlotte area in 1995 and married my husband 5 years later.  I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and have lived in Utah and Illinois as well. I love to teach and help people and my way to do this is to offer my services to the public for free crochet instruction.  I am not the best, I don't like to follow patterns, but I do know the common stitches and how to read patterns. I like to crochet since I can justify watching TV if my hands are busy.  I love to see people's faces when I gift them with something handmade.  I do on occasion custom orders but I don't really get paid enough for my time.  So, if you want something made, come learn how to do it!
