From November 24th, 2020 at 8:00 pm US EST to December 31, 2020 at midnight US EST there will be fun games, contests, and 8 KAL/CALs that will help you get your holiday knitting and crocheting done with companionship and fun!

2020 Indie Design Gift Along – how do I take part?
If you’re able to use Ravelry.com sign up in the Indie Design Gift Along Group in the appropriate category thread for your project. Example an adult sweater goes in the Garments Along thread, a cushion would go in the Toys and Home thread, a baby item would go in the Babies thread. Your project page on Ravelry needs to contain the hashtags for the event and the hashtag for the category where you signed up for that item. We’ve prepared a video on how to setup your projects, add the tags and we’ll be adding another about how to edit your project, add the cast on and cast off dates etc.
