The 2015 Gift-A-Long (GAL) is almost here!
This is the third year for the Indie Designer Gift-A-Long and I’m so excited for it to begin. Every year has been a lot of fun and this year, it is bigger than ever and guaranteed not to disappoint.
What is Gift-A-Long? It’s a multi-designer promotion to help you kick your holiday gift-making into high gear!
Basically, 335 indie designers of knit and crochet patterns, have banded together to support each other and help everyone get their holiday to-do list done while having a lot of fun and possibly winning patterns and yarn and kits and lots of other fiber finds.
There is an amazing stats page you can find here: Indie GAL Stats!
In a nutshell there are:
335 designers from 30 countries.
Over 150 donated physical prizes, and more coming in…
Over 2,300 digital prizes (patterns!)
There are almost 16,000 patterns to knit or crochet that will make you eligible to win one (or more) of the fabulous prizes. Of the almost 16,000 patterns, 5,065 of them will be on SALE for 25% off! Yup! Big Savings so stock up on your favorites. The sale runs from Thursday, November 19th at 8:00 pm US EST to Friday, November 27, 2015 at 11:59 pm US EST.
There will be Pinterest boards and Ravelry Bundles available to peruse for all the sale patterns. Each designer has at least 5 and up to 20 patterns on sale. Once you get your sale pattern, check out the other patterns the designer offers. All patterns are eligible for the KAL/CAL threads and all paid for patterns (self, or third party published) are eligible for prizes. Did I mention the prizes??? Tons and tons of prizes but you gotta’ be in it to win!
