almost time: 2014 Indie Design Gift-A-Long

GAL14_logo-400Preparing for the holidays as only fiber folks can, with special deals from tons of indie designers. And this year La Visch is one of the participating designers!

What is Gift-A-Long? It’s a multi-designer promotion to help you kick your holiday gift-making into high gear.
The Indie Design Gift-A-Long is a 2 month long KAL/CAL (Knit-A-Long/Crochet-A-Long) of holiday gifts made from patterns designed by a rather extensive list of independent designers. From 13 to 21 November 2014 tons of indie designers will be discounting between 4 – 20 of their patterns 25% for this event. You can read all about the details in this post on Ravelry: click!

Not a member yet of Ravelry? Join! It’s free and totally awesome.

Once you’ve got your Gift-A-Long patterns, you can join a relevant KAL/CAL in the Indie Design Gift-A-Long group. For example, if you are making a shawl, join the shawl KAL/CAL to be eligible for prizes. To join, simply write a post in the KAL/CAL thread of your choice, including the pattern name you will be knitting and a link to your project page. KAL/CAL participants are eligible for lots of lovely prizes but you gotta post to win!

KAL/CALs will run from Thursday, November 13 at 8pm (US-EST) through our New Years Eve party, Wednesday, December 31 at midnight (US-EST), plenty of time to knock out all your holiday knitting and crocheting.
There will be games, tons of prizes, great conversation, and a lot of fun, so pull up a chair and join!

Stay tuned, because I will also be posting interviews with some of my fellow Indie designers the upcoming weeks.
