Thursday SNB is Relocating!

The original Thursday evening Janesville Area Stitch 'n Bitch is MOVING!
Join us on Thursday,
March 26
to thank Steve for being an incredible host these past few years and then . . .
find our gatherings at
1711 Lodge Drive, Janesville
(Across from Toys R Us - old Hancock Fabrics building)
NEW TIME: 6-8pm
The decision to permanently move the Thursday gathering was arrived at by a vote of current participants and predicated upon our growing needs for a space with better lighting, quieter (for conversation and speakers), table space, public visibility, accessibility, and more.

Please note the Monday and Saturday groups will
remain at their original locations.
