All Day Stitch-in  

Come and join us for our All Day Stitch-ins on the second Saturday of every month. There are no costs or requirements, just a fun day for stitching with others that enjoy the same addiction.

We will start with breakfast at 8:30 AM at:

Golden Egg Omelet House
16 W Mission Ave # 101-103
Escondido, CA 92025

Please RSVP 760-737-3113 to give us a correct count for breakfast and to see if we need to set up an additional table at the shop.

If you join us at Lunch time we usually order from a deli or bring whatever you want.

For the diehards that are still with us at dinner time we take a consensus and either go and get take out or walk to one of the nearby restaurants.

This is a fun time to get to know other stitchers and just have an uninterrupted day to do what we love the most.

You will also need to choose a neutral color.

* If you need help choosing colors, let the shop know so arrangements can be made WITH DOROTHY for the FRIDAY EVENING PRIOR TO THE CLASS!
