National Wear Red Day this Friday, American Heart Month, and the debut of Sew Red this month!
There are a few fun things that came out of that very chilly morning in New York, so I'll start there! Laura and Kaity from Jimmy Beans Wool were in NYC for VK Live to promote Stitch Red, and Kaity, being our PR person, thought it would be a great idea to try and get Stitch Red on the Today Show. So we got together and started to rally the troops. We knew this would be the perfect time since there would be tons of knitter's in town for VK Live. We made signs and asked people to meet us at 6:15am. We knew it was early, but this was THE Today Show! Totally worth it!
Designers and Stitch Red partners made red knitted items to gift to the hosts as well as brought Stitch Red products to share as well. Among those brave enough to join us in the chilly morning were Kersti and Taiu from Koigu, Andrea Jurgrau of Bad Cat Designs, Mary Beth Temple, Nicky Epstein, and so many more! What fun it was to see everyone in their red out to support our cause!
Kaity was able to speak briefly with Savannah Guthrie and give her a scarf and tell her a little bit about the Stitch Red campaign. She was also able to give one of the show's producers the other gifts to give to the hosts. We were told that they might be featured on a later show!
Wishing you a wonderful week and a healthy heart,
