That’s right! The Indie Design Gift-A-Long starts TONIGHT! We kick things off at 8 pm EST with a SALE!
If you’ve never taken part in the Gift-A-Long you are in for a treat! This is the 3rd annual Gift-A-Long (GAL) and it grows larger every year! The Indie Design GAL is a multi-designer promotion to help you kick your holiday gift-making into high gear while also supporting independent designers!
Did you say SALE?
Yes! I did! From Nov. 19 at 8pm EST through – Nov. 27 at 11:59pm EST the 335 participating indie designers will be discounting between 5 and 20 of their patterns 25% for this event (there are 5,065 patterns on sale)! All of my self-published patterns are included in the sale! Just use the coupon code giftalong2015 during the sale period to get 25% off!
Do you like to win prizes?
You do? Great! You can knit/crochet along with us in the Indie Design GAL group on Ravelry and be eligible to win a TON of prizes! We are also giving away 2,300 patterns from participating designers! All paid patterns by the participating designers are eligible for KAL/CAL prizes (not just those offered in the sale!). That’s around 16,000 eligible patterns! We’ll also have games! So many opportunities to win! I’ll be moderating the Shawls & Stoles KAL/CAL again this year so if you’re knitting/crocheting a shawl during the GAL, you’ll get to hang with me!
Who are the participating designers?
You can see all 335 designers in this thread and a full list of designers here. There will also be Pinterest boards going live soon that have the sale patterns categorized (scarves and cowls, shawls, etc) for easy browsing! And for the first time this year, we will have a bundle in the Ravelry group that has ALL of the patterns that are eligible for the GAL (that’s about 16,000 patterns!). The bundle will be searchable to make it super simple to find the perfect pattern for that yarn in your stash or a perfect hat pattern for picky Aunt Bertha, who only wears cabled knits. All of these will be posted in the GAL Ravelry group!
Here is a map of participating designers (I’m representing Mississippi by myself!) and here is an ever-growing map of the GAL participants!
I hope you’ll join us this year! It’s always more fun to knit and crochet with friends!
