Enter for a chance to join our first Stitch-Together

Gift basket for the Detroit News Stitch-Together.

Here's your opportunity to get your knit and crochet on, and meet other fiber enthusiasts, at the first Detroit News Stitch-Together, hosted by our Handmade columnist Jocelynn Brown from 2-4 p.m. May 13 at The Detroit News.


Fifteen knitters and crocheters will be invited to participate in a free Wednesday afternoon of fun and creativity with two hours of knitting and crocheting, coffee and donuts, and a gift basket, generously donated by the Wool & the Floss (397 Fisher Road, Grosse Pointe), with a retail value of $230, as a door prize for one lucky winner.

Those selected will be asked to bring 15 copies of their favorite pattern to share with others, a finished project for show-and-tell, one new skein of yarn from their stash to trade, and, of course, something to knit or crochet.

You must be at least 18 years of age to enter. For a chance to participate, just send an email to jbrown@detroitnews.com with your name, daytime telephone number, a paragraph about why you'd like to be part of the group, how long you've been knitting and/or crocheting, and a photo of a recent project.

The deadline to submit your information is May 4 at midnight. Winners will be notified by email.

The Detroit News is located at 160 W. Fort, one block west of Campus Martius, in downtown Detroit. Hourly parking is available in nearby surface lots.
