The 10th Annual Stitch 'n Pitch, which started at Safeco Field in 2005 and has spread across Major League Baseball, returns on Thursday, July 24, when the Mariners take on the Baltimore Orioles. Game time is 7:10 p.m. Stitch 'n Pitch is once again presented by Pacific Fabrics & Crafts.
The special guest of the event will be Debbie Bliss, designer of knitwear and yarn and the author of over 50 knitting books. Bliss will throw out a first pitch before the game and will appear at the Pacific Fabrics & Crafts booth on the upper concourse to meet knitters.
Specially-priced tickets for Stitch 'n Pitch are $15 each and are available online at Mariners.com/stitch and at Pacific Fabrics & Crafts stores. The deadline to purchase tickets online is 5pm, Wednesday, July 23. While supplies last, Stitch 'n Pitch tickets can be redeemed at Section 337 on the day of the game for a free pair of airline-friendly thread scissors, featuring the Mariners logo.
As in years past, a number of yarn and craft shops and fiber arts organizations from around the Puget Sound area will be at Safeco Field with samples, coupons, patterns and kits for sale, class schedules and assistance from experienced knitters.
