Colorado Rockies: Stitch-n-Pitch

The following is an email posted to our Denver Knits group:

Are you planning on attending Stitch N' Pitch at the Colorado Rockies July 28 game?

Would you be interested in coming if there's a blogger meet-up? Stitch N' Pitch helps raise awareness of the needle arts (that's knitting, crochet, needlepoint, cross stitch, and embroidery) by stitching in public while you enjoy a baseball game with your family and friends.

Colorado-based Interweave Press (publisher of Interweave Knits, Interweave Crochet and other fiber-related books and magazines) and a committee of Colorado yarn shops are organizing this year's event with TNNA. We hope to bring out a huge crowd -- and this is where we could use your help. Would you help spread word-of-mouth about the event?
