Next weekend (Jan. 25 – 27) is Vogue Knitting Live at the midtown Marriott – let’s have a contest! During the weekend of Vogue, find one of our posters at the show and take a picture with it. Shy? Take a picture of your Vogue shawl or sweater, favorite thing you bought at the Marketplace, or what you worked on in class. Just make sure the poster is visible! Post your picture (publicly so we can find it!) to Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #VogueLIYC2019. One lucky person will win up to $15 worth of Ravelry patterns! One entry per person, winners will be announced by Feb 1, 2019. Good luck and enjoy VKL!
Hear ye, hear ye… Help start off the year by spreading the word, mark your calendars for April 4 – 7. The 5th annual Long Island Yarn crawl is on!
Help spread the word by:
- Print out two copies of the poster.
- Posting it in two different public places.
- Take a picture of yourself and your two posters and post to Instagram using hash tags:
The contest runs January 1 – March 15th. Each Instagram post that contains two images is one entry to the contest. Winners and prizes will be announced March 30th.
