Governor Nathan Deal will be issuing an executive proclamation recognizing the knitters and crocheters of Georgia. As part of that proclamation, he will be naming Saturday April 14, 2012 as statewide knitting and crochet day. There will be a rally on the Capitol steps that day from 11 AM until 2 PM. You can find a map here. Notice that this will be on the northwest side of the Capitol building, so we should have some shade at least some of the time.
When you attend, please bring your knitting and crochet. You may also wish to bring:
water in bottles
pillow or blanket (if you prefer to sit on the Capitol steps)
Driving directions and visitor information are available from the Georgia Secretary of State website. There are also driving directions on the Facebook link at the end of this post.
For those of you who would prefer to take MARTA, you can find information here. Basically, you would exit the train at the Georgia State Station on the blue and green rail line (one stop east of Five Points). Take the Piedmont Avenue exit out of the station and turn left on Piedmont Avenue. Walking time is less than 10 minutes. If you need to get your bearings, look up and walk towards the big gold dome.

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.
