Indie Design Gift-A-Long!

Indie Design Gift-A-Long

The Indie Design Gift-A-Long on Ravelry is starting TONIGHT at 8pm EST!

What is the Gift-A-Long you ask?
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 (like me!)!

There’s a sale, too!
From Nov. 13 at 8pm EST through – Nov. 21, 2014 at 11:59pm EST the 293 participating indie designers will be discounting between 4 – 20 of their patterns 25% for this event (there are 3,822 patterns on sale)! All of my paid patterns are included in the sale! Just use the coupon code giftalong2014 during the sale period to get 25% off any of my patterns!

Join us! And win stuff!
You can knit along with us in the Indie Design GAL group and be eligible to win LOADS of fabulous prizes! There will be games and chit-chat and tons and tons of FUN! All paid patterns by the participating designers are eligible for prizes (not just those offered in the sale!). That’s 11,512 eligible patterns! I am moderating the Shawls & Stoles thread so if you’re knitting/crocheting a shawl during the GAL, you get to hang with me!

What designers are participating?
You can see all 293 designers (along with photos of their patterns) in this thread and a full list of designers here. There are also Pinterest boards that have the sale patterns categorized (scarves and cowls, shawls, etc) for easy browsing!

Some neat stats about this year’s GAL
Here is a map of participating designers (I’m all by myself in Mississippi!) and here is an ever-growing map of the GAL participants!

And here is a mind-boggling amount of data about this year’s GAL! It’s so fun to see all the stats!

I hope you’ll join us for this year’s Gift-A-Long! Whether you’re making gifts for loved ones or yourself, it’s much more fun to do so with friends!
