That transition from the holidays back to real life is no joke. So many makers are coming off of marathon craft show crocheting or making Christmas gifts. Now that the busy season is over, it’s time to start making just for yourself again!
Say hello to Make It CAL 2020, a no-stress crochet event for yarn lovers! Starting Tuesday, January 21st, casually crochet your favorite TLYC patterns for a chance to win some awesome prizes.
What is a Crochet-Along?
Essentially, a crochet along or CAL is an online maker party for crocheters around the world. We’ll all be working on projects at the same time and will share our progress on Instagram and Facebook. This will be the second Make It CAL and I can’t wait to get started!
This event runs January 21st – February 24th, but you can hop in anytime. Pick any free or paid TL Yarn Crafts pattern, share your progress on Instagram and/or Facebook, and be in the running for awesome prizes.
Prizes, You Say?
Well, it wouldn’t be a TL Yarn Crafts CAL without prizes, now would it? Here’s some info about our CAL sponsored prizes:
Week 1: Win a pair of snips from Warm Crochet. These are my personal favorites – I have a pair in every project bag!
Week 2: Our friends at Jimmy Beans Wool are putting together a mystery prize for two lucky winners. I wonder what it will be!
Week 3: One of my favorite indie dyers, Ashley of Montana Crochet is offering up TWO skeins of her gorgeous yarns to two lucky winners.
Week 4: Get your hands on my favorite set of Tunisian crochet hooks from Denise Interchangeables! Two winners will get to pick the set of their choice.
Week 5: Knit and crochet designer Teresa of DEBROSSE wrote the ultimate beginner crochet book last year. Get your hands on a copy in the Make It CAL giveaway!
How to Win
You have two chances to win the Make It CAL prize each week:
- Instagram – Make sure you’re following @TLYarnCrafts and the prize sponsor. Then post your Make It CAL project and use the hashtag #MakeItCAL2020 – post as many times as you like for more entries. I’ll choose a winner each week from the hashtag and announce them in my stories. Only public accounts can be considered for the prize.
- Facebook – Join the TLYCMakers Facebook group and post a photo of your Make It CAL progress as a comment on that week’s CAL update thread. I’ll choose a winner from the comments each week.
