Hello El Stitch y Bitch,

It’s been a while since we’ve had a real update and I promise this one contains good news and a much needed knitting night.


Good news first… Last year our all knit and crocheted altar was unveiled at the National Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen. This year we are so happy to share the news that we will show our altar at the Indianapolis Art Center’s Dia de los Muertos exhibition. Karla did an amazing job of assisting me with the proposal and this weekend we will hit the road to go install it. The show opens on Saturday October 29th from noon-5pm. More info here. Let’s talk about carpooling for the opening at our next meeting!

We had a great opening night at the Tejer y Joder show over at Antena last Friday. A big CONGRATS goes out to all of our displaying artists– you did an amazing job and I am so proud of all your work. Check out this sweet blog post!

Since the next couple weekends are packed with installing the altar and a mini vacay for me, let’s plan to have our next knitting circle on Wednesday, Oct. 5th at my apt. from 7pm-9pm. My address is 2053 W Coulter St. I promise to have yummy beer and snacks, but feel free to bring your fav. snack too. Can’t wait to catch up and see what everyone is working on!

p.s. Beginner’s Night will be back soon!

Hello El Stitch y Bitch!

I hope you’re  all staying nice and cool… good time to stay indoors and do some knitting, I say. June is packed with events and we hope to see you very soon.

This weekend, June 11 is International Yarn Bombing Day! A few of us have been commissioned to do some on-site knit graffiti at the Michael’s store on the north side. All of you are welcome to join us and make some knit graffiti from 1-5pm at 3131 N. Clark St. No need to bring any yarn, Michael’s is supplying us with plenty. Sweet!

Also, a few of us have spoken about our upcoming show at Antena Gallery in September. If you’re interested in being a part of this art show let’s plan to meet on Sunday, June 26th at my apt., 6pm. We’ll discuss everyone’s ideas and pieces and plan out the show. Bring your ideas and your sketchbooks, please!  Please rsvp by Friday.

Our next SyB will be at the end of the month on Wednesday, June 29th at Cafe Catedral: 2500 S. Christiana Ave. As usual our meeting is from 7-9pm. Bring your projects and your lovely selves and let’s catch up!

That’s all for now, dears! Look forward to seeing you at one of our many events.
