Holy Moly! It’s nearly Christmas?!? (and summer, this is feeling SO weird). Are you as surprised and hopelessly unprepared as I am (like… every year anew)?? Then it’s about time to join the Indie Design Gift-A-Long on Ravelry! From the 24th of November it’s ON! Get ready now and fire up your stash as this year will be the probably bestestest highlight to look forward to in 2020!
My toys have already put on their festive gear to join the celebrations early!
I’m proud to be one of 250 participating designers for the 5th year in a row!
Like last year’s Gift-Along (GAL) (and the 7 before), this year will give you: a huge list of independent designers, 6 weeks of KAL/CALs, tons of patterns at 25% discount and crazy many prizes to win with almost 10000 people worldwide participating (and counting)!
We will help you kick your holiday gift-making into high gear!
What is the Indie Design Gift-A-Long?
It’s prepping for the holidays as only fiber folks can, with special deals from hundreds of indie designers!
The Indie Design Gift-A-Long is an almost 6 week long KAL/CAL of holiday gifts made from patterns designed by almost 300 independent designers. From November 24th at 8pm (US-EST) through November 30th at 11:59 pm (US-EST) these indie designers will be discounting between 10 – 20 of their patterns by 25% for this event.
There are eight KAL/CALs to participate in, prizes of all sorts given out, games, and generally a lot of fun! The Gift-A-Long KAL/CALs will run from November 24th at 8pm US EST through – December 31 at 11:59pm US EST. All patterns by the participating designers are eligible for the KAL/CALs and projects made from all not-free patterns by the participating designers are eligible to win prizes in the FO thread. Please note that all prize winners must be group members to be eligible to win a prize.
The Gift-A-Long is run on US EST so here is a link to a world clock time converter so you can all keep track of how that related to the time where you are: click here

How do I get the discount?
It’s easy peasy!

All items made from any of my patterns will be eligible to win prizes after the sales period!
For those of you on Istagram there will be an Insta challenge too 🙂
So don’t wait, get your needles out and start browsing the designer bundles, find your fav patterns and get ready to rock!
