Stitch & Hustle is all about the many makers and small maker business owners that make up this incredible community. We encourage offline support and growth as much as online. Connecting is how we all thrive. Stitch Up Events was born from the idea of taking an online group offline to share fiber love, respect and grow in community.

Stitch Up is truly unlike any other event. Not a shopping or vendor based event, Stitch Up is more than just a knitting or crochet party. It is about celebrating and sharing that good fiber love and growing in community. I am amazed at how each year we have had people who have NEVER held knitting needles or crochet hooks attend and leave having not only made something but learned a new skill and become part of the fiber community. 

After 3 successful years in Chicago, I am taking Stitch Up Events to other cities and my home, New York City, is up next. Brooklyn to be exact and what an event we are lining up! 

The first Stitch Up Brooklyn is going to be INCREDIBLE! And scroll to the bottom of this page to grab your tickets.
Space IS Limited!!!

Friday Evening the fun begins with a the Official Event Kick Off Dinner Hosted by Kristy Glass, Naomi Rag, Patty Lyons, Creative CeCi, Louis Boria of Brooklyn Boy Knits & Michele Costa (me). A fabulous fiber workshop where you can crochet OR knit up a fabulous creation while enjoying a fantastic dinner and good company. All materials provided for your kits.

And as a very special bonus, Friday night ONLY, Stitch Up Brooklyn presents: The Doctor Is IN with Patty Lyons!
Take advantage of this incredible opportunity to sit one on one with my knitting guru Patty Lyons and get your burning question answered. Got a stitch you are stuck on? Dropped a stitch way back and can’t find it? Have a wip that needs surgery? Well the Doctor is IN and she will help you Friday night to heal your stitches and mend your wip woes!

Saturday we kick things off with our FIBERLICIOUS BRUNCH at 9am. Yummy delights will be served up as well as we learn about some fabulous local and indie yarns. We will be sampling away and trying out these amazing fibers from:

All materials for this outing provided (yarn, hooks, needles and a bottle of water for all registered!)

Saturday evening we close things out with the Knit Crate sponsored Taco & KITS Party Hosted by Kristy Glass, Creative CeCi, Louis Boria of Brooklyn Boy Knits & Michele Costa (me). Everyone gets tacos. Everyone gets a Knit Crate. Everyone gets to have fun! Now THAT’s a taco night!
