I just need to make sure that you know about the FIRST ANNUAL STITCH AND KICK at the Portland Thorns.

This is a new event being planned to bring together fiber crafters, our glorious PDX summer afternoons, handmade creations for donation to our local community in need, and professional soccer.

*** The 1st annual Stitch & Kick is a reality! ***
(snoopy dance!!)

There is a custom designed THORNS colorway created by our very own local, Lora Jean of Knitted Wit.

Donations will be collected at the stadium, at the last match of the season (always an exciting match!) and can be any scarves, hats, mittens you may have to donate (not just ones from the pattern you receive with your tickets).

I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for this event. Knitting brings me sanity, joy, confidence, self worth, community, laughter, relaxation, an opportunity to process in a moving meditation. The benefits of knitting have been noted along these lines in addition to helping retain detailed brain function and holding off dementia as you age.

Check out the flyer, share it with friends/family/acquaintances, and if you are able to join us, I would absolutely love it.
