We celebrate needle arts by hosting a Stitch-in Public Day in February each year. Our latest Stitch-in-Public day was this past Saturday. We have already started hearing from chapters and members who stitched in a wide variety of public places including coffee shops, libraries, laundromats, restaurants and even at the Capitol.
