    Donations - 2019 Holiday Make Along

    I am hoping to gather some donations for our 2019 Holiday Make Along. There are two sections on the Holiday Make Along - I am hoping to have a few random number based on chatter prizes to send, and a prize package or two, three based on the point system indicated.

    If you would care to donate something, please feel free to list it here, or send me a personal message. If you are a vendor and would like add links to your stores/marketplace feel free to do so - I am all for plugging and promoting the businesses here on Fiberkind.

    If you have preferences on how or what section you would like the donation to go to, please so indicate.

    Donation suggestions:
    • Pattern
    • Stitch Markers
    • Do you have that ball of yarn you just can't figure out what to make with it? Maybe it is time to pass it along!
    • Project bag
    • Gift Certificate to the marketplace (the marketplace is set up for a gift certificate minimum of $10.00)
    • A small project you have handmade
    • Other: ______________
    Thank you all so much for being part of this community and knit along. Happy Holidays wherever you are, and no matter how you celebrate.

        What? I didn't know prizes would be ongoing. Thank you knitter131, how exciting.

        FreedomLover - yes! I wanted everyone to have equal opportunities... so it is based on chatter in the chatter thread where when it feels right I will do a random number generator, and points based in the second finished thread. :-)

        Congrats again! This is very soft yarn.

        I went back and read the first post and saw that it says there would be random prizes. It's amazing the difference it makes when one reads things.

          I'm donating gift tags. Some Christmas and some fiber related. I will need to limit it to mailing in the US.

            knitter131 - I put the tags in the mail today. Not the prettiest of packaging jobs trying to meet the USPS rules for sending large envelopes rather than paying package rates. My biggest fear is I messed up on the rules and it arrives postage due. Please tell me if that happens.

            Thanks, I will let you know once they've arrived. No worrys about a little postage due, I can take care of it.

            knitter131 - I do want to know if all went well with the mailing. I don't mail much so I had to study the USPS website (which is horrible!) and google questions. I finally came to the conclusion that I could mail a large envelope as long as it was under 3/4" thick and doesn't vary in height by more than 1/4". You'll see I spread them out in an attempt to
            keep it at an even 3/4". It seems like the USPS doesn't want to make it easy to mail lightweight but lumpy envelopes. I think they would like to force us into using all flat rate boxes.

I marvel at your abilities, and your imagination on these tags, they are even more beautiful up close where I can see the detail. I particularly like the reindeer and the snowman, they are just priceless! Thank you so much, I will be using my first tag tonight for a birthday gift for a guy, so I’ve chosen this one, which can be used for any occasion. Smiling with gratitude! 😀😀😀

            knitter131 - I'm so glad they arrived safely and no postage due! It's the googly eyes on the reindeer and snowman. Who doesn't love googly eyes!
