World Record for Most People Crocheting

By Rachel Choi – 10 Comments

On Saturday, June 5, 2010, a whopping 427 crocheters/baseball fans gathered at the Citi Field in New York to watch a Mets game and set the world record for the most people crocheting in one place! This gathering was organized by The National NeedleArts Association. In fact, Major League Baseball (MLB) and The National NeedleArts Association (TNNA) hold “Stitch n’ Pitch” events like this every season. Those who attend sit in a special section and enjoy crocheting, knitting, cross-stitching and other needle projects, while watching a baseball game.
