September 3, National Stitch-In-Public Day EGA invites stitchers of all ages and skill levels to join in a day of community crafting that will celebrate the traditions and trends of needlework, right right where they are. There's no cost - just an effort to encourage community among stitchers. Embroiders, quilters, knitters and who [sic] will shine a light on their crafts Sept. 3 by stitching together in public spaces such as coffee shops, parks, malls – anywhere they can be seen. Let EGA Headquarters know about your event so photos, stories and updates can be shared online. Contact Brad at firstname.lastname@example.org if your chapter or group of stitchers wants to organize an event. Call (502) 589-6956.
I've e-mailed the "Philadelphia" chapter of the EGA (located in Devon, about 24 miles from Phillie) to see what they are up to. If they don't have big plans, I was thinking we southeastern Pennsylvanians should squat at the King of Prussia mall. Who's in?
Tonight, I'll be at the Philadelphia Stitch n Pitch with my Fair and Square project and LHN's Dog House Sampler. But we're supposed to be in for massive thunderstorms. Which will probably happen since the last time I went to Citizen's Bank Park there was a 2.5 hour rain delay...
PS My computer at home won't let us log in for some reason. So I couldn't upload my doll photo. I've poked and prodded my work computer but there's no place for the camera's memory card. So no pictures. Dollhouse Tuesday will have to be postponed.
