The Big Stitch - April 18, 2009

"The Big Stitch" is for knitting and crochet crafters. It is an event to help support The Meharry Project. This is a charitable organization whose goal is to provide a new handmade blanket and hat to each of the approximately 2500 babies born at the Nashville General Hospital each year.

We will gather at FiftyForward Knowles - 174 Rains Avenue - Nashville. This is located near the TN State Fairgrounds. The event is April 18th, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. Bring a sack lunch. You will meet other knitting and crochet folks, exchange information, patterns, ideas, etc. Instructions and patterns are also available at minimal costs.

Last meeting saw at least 100 blanket sets turned in, this one we hope to gather even more. They do ask that these blankets are kept smoke free.

Reservations recommended. Anyone who would like more information should contact Deborah Stillwell at info@knitandcrochettn.com or by calling 615-579-1875.
