Spread the love on I Love Yarn Day!
You’ve probably heard of the “pay it forward” campaign (think buy a cup of coffee for a stranger), but what about “stitch it forward?”
Stitch it forward is the slogan and idea behind I Love Yarn Day, which takes place this year on Saturday October 15th. The concept behind this day of stitching is that each knitter teaches one newbie how to knit, or a new skill to help make them better crafters.
If you have the time and can participate, you can share your experiences on social media by using the hashtags #StitchItForward and #iloveyarnday
To find out more, and other ways you can get involved, check out the official I Love Yarn Day website. Craft Yarn Council Executive Director Jenny Bessonette sums up the spirit of the day perfectly:
“This celebration is for everyone in the industry who experiences the feel-good facets of yarn – from individual yarn-crafters and yarn shops to designers, manufactures and more – to enjoy. All that’s required is a passion for yarn and a desire to have fun.”
So why not get stuck in, help someone learn a brand new skill and have a whole heap of fun in the meantime! Feel free to share your experiences with stitching it forward on the LoveKnitting community as well!
