This is, as far as we know, the first time that the highest executive of any state in our Union has ever acknowledged knitters and crocheters-not to mention naming a day for us statewide. This is not just a victory for the Guilds and for knitters and crocheters of Georgia; it's a victory for us all. This acknowledgement celebrates and elevates the entire industry and our craft!
So we're asking you to help us spread the news, AND asking you to join us on the Capitol steps in Atlanta, GA on Saturday, April 14, 2012. The Georgia Knit and Crochet Day Rally will be from 11 am - 2 pm. If you're able to celebrate this historic event with us, we want you there!
Bring your knitting. Bring your crochet. Most importantly, bring your pride-that's what this day is all about! We'd love to see thousands (from all over the South and from across our great nation) crowding the Capitol steps in show of appreciation to Governor Deal for his recognition of the knitters and crocheters of Georgia! This is our moment! Spread the word-statewide and nationwide.
