how’s that for some stats!
OK in addition to the gifting KAL I am running in my Ravelry group, I am participating in the GAL again this year. It’s all pretty exciting I have to say. I’ll be co-modding the hand and arm things thread in the Ravelry Indie Designers Gift-A-Long group. In addition to being a participating designer. Phew! the rest of this year is going to wizz on by!
What is the Indie Design Gift-A-Long? It’s prepping for the holidays as only fiber folks can, with special deals from tons of indie designers! The Indie Design Gift-A-Long is a 1.5 month long KAL/CAL of holiday gifts made from patterns designed by 293 independent designers.
From November 13 at 8pm US EST through – November 21, 2014 at 11:59pm US EST these 293 indie designers will be discounting between 4 – 20 of their patterns 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 13 at 8pm US EST through – December 31, 2014 at 11:59pm US EST
Which patterns are discounted? All the participating designers have posted in this thread including a link to the bundle of patterns they are discounting, and showing a photo so that you can get a sense of their style, if you’re not already familiar with them. In addition, some of our industrious indie design elves have put together an amazing group of Pinterest boards that will allow you to browse through lots of designs at the same time. You can find all the links to the different boards here.
How do I get the discount? It’s easy peasy! Just purchase the patterns you want directly from the designers’ Ravelry shops between 8 pm US EST on Thursday, November 13th and 11:59 pm on Friday, November 21st, and enter the coupon code giftalong2014 at checkout and 25% will be automatically taken off the total price.
I have a selection of patterns discounted for the sale you can see them in the bundle in my Ravelry store, and all of my patterns are eligible to be knit during the GAL* and you can double up and join the gifting KAL in my group too for extra chit chat, fun and even more opportunities to win prizes.
The prizes are impressive! here is a list of all the physical prizes on offer during the GAL (swoon) that doesn’t include all of the digital prizes, below is a peek at the prizes up for grabs in the Gifting KAL in my group.
Are you planning to knit gifts for this festive season? Will you be joining us in one of the KAL’s? Hope I get to hang out with you in one of the threads.
* note: while you may knit any of my patterns in the GAL, to be in the prize draw the patterns must be a for sale or paid for pattern (not one of the free ones) you can enter either kind of pattern in the KAL in my group.
