On Sunday, July 26 Stitch N Pitch came to the Tampa Bay area. OttLite is headquartered in Tampa, FL so we definitely wanted to get involved!

A national event for people who love the needlearts, Stitch N Pitch gathers needle artists and seats them together at a professional baseball game. Sponsored by The National NeedleArts Association and major/minor league baseball teams, this event allows knitters, crocheters, embroiders, cross-stitchers and needlepoint lovers to work on their projects while they cheer on their local teams.

A lot of needles are at work in this crowd>/small>

The game in our area was the Tampa Bay Rays hosting the Baltimore Orioles. One of our local yarn shops, Stash A Place for Yarn, organized the event. Stash also coordinated ticket sales and created giveaway bags for all of the attendees.

OttLite donated LED Mini Flip Lites (the perfect battery-powered lamp for a ball game) for the goody bags and it looks like they got some great use of them at the game. Perfect for low-light situations, the OttLite LED Mini Flip Lite has 12 Natural Daylight LED lights and is small enough to put in your bag. It’s perfect for on-the-go color matching!


The OttLite LED Mini Flip came in handy

There were over 100 crafters in attendance and it looks like everyone had a great time.
