It's getting to be that time of year when many of us are knitting and crocheting furiously to try to get all our holiday gift crafting done in time. This year, a large group of indie designers (myself included) are trying to make it easier and more fun. We've joined forces to create the Indie Gift-a-long, a two-month-long shared crafting experience full of fun and prizes. Here are the details:
- Starting at midnight tomorrow GMT*, November 1, and running through end of day November 15, all eligible patterns from participating designers are 25% off with the coupon code giftalong. There is no limit to how many times this coupon can be used.
- From November 1 through December 31, the Gift-a-long will be in effect in the group. There are nine categories based on the type of item being knit and a thread for each where you can discuss your progress with other Gift-a-long-ers. To be eligible for the Gift-a-long, all patterns knit or crocheted must be participating in the discount offer.
- Prizes will be awarded at random for FOs posted in the appropriate thread and at certain points during the KAL/CAL in the item threads. Prizes include yarn, patterns, and other goodies -- not to mention the satisfaction that comes from getting your holiday crafting done long before it's time to actually give it away!
I am participating in this event, and all of the self-published patterns in my shop are eligible for the discount. There are more than 170 other indie designers participating as well, so I'd highly encourage you to take a few minutes to scroll through the thread of participating patterns. I hope to see you knitting or crocheting along!
*Psst! If you're on the East Coast like me, midnight Friday GMT is 8 p.m. Thursday Eastern Time!
