Stitch Up Chicago 2019 has come and gone and was AMAZING! Recap coming soon!
STITCH UP CHICAGO 2020 IS ALREADY BEING PLANNED!
ABOUT STITCH UP EVENTS
Stitch Up Chicago began in 2017 when Michele Costa, founder of the blog Stitch & Hustle, wanted to bring her online friends together offline for a night of fiber and fun. Unexpectedly and amazingly, the response to create a small friendly get together outgrew the planned coffee shop gathering and Michele quickly realized the community hungered for this type of event, and Stitch Up Chicago was born.
After three incredibly successful years, Stitch Up Chicago is growing beyond the Windy City with the launch of Stitch Up Events. Chicago will always be where it all began and so very special, but Michele heard loud and clear when the community asked for this to expand to other cities. Next up Michele is going home to New York City and launching Stitch Up Brooklyn in 2019!
Stitch Up Events are not marketplaces for shopping or a classroom for learning. Stitch Ups are more than just a casual gathering of fiber enthusiasts. Stitch Up Events are where fiber enthusiasts can come together and celebrate our passion for fiber arts, learn from each other and grow in our fiber community. Whether you knit or crochet, both or neither, if you want to be part of the fiber family then this is the place for you.
Stitch & Hustle is all about the community of makers and small business owners. We encourage offline support and growth as much as online. Connecting is how we all thrive.
