Stitch 'n Pitch - June 21

The Janesville Area Stitch 'n Bitch
stitchers of mass discussion
are now taking orders for tickets to the Brewer's 2011

Stitch 'n Pitch
Tuesday, June 21
7pm - Miller Park, Milwaukee
Sure you could order tickets yourself but then you'd miss
the camaraderie of the Janesville SnB stitchers!
Please let us know if you want to join us,
Cost: $33 (includes your ticket, the Miller Park service fee,
a portion of the parking fee, and a bit for gas for the driver)
We hope to place our group order by the 2nd week of April
so we are guaranteed to be among the first 1,000
ticket buyers who will receive this year's Bernie
the knitting bobblehead!

Wizard's Workshop

SnBer Karen has a new blog! Check it out at

How Knitting Can/Cannot Help the Japanese...

"For knitters, helping folks in need is as automatic
as stashing yarn. We don't think about it,
we just do it. And we take pride in doing it well."

Knitting Protesters at the State Capitol

Who would have thought when you spend
the night in the State Capitol and you round
the corner of the 2nd floor North Wing one evening
during 2 weeks of the largest protests
in Wisconsin history, this is what you'd find!

I guess it only goes to prove: We have needles
(and spindles) and we DO know how to use them!
