Stitchfest 2

Join other crafty folks on the first day of 2007 to create a blanket for the warm-hearted, cold-footed ladies of the Chicago Rape Crisis Hotline. At Stitchfest 2 - held today from noon to midnight at Pressure Billiards and Cafe (6318 North Clark Street) - bring your tools and they'll supply the yarn and good cheer. It's fun, it's crafty, and it's for a great cause.
