I loved doing the O’Christmas Tree Skirt CAL last year. Remember this?
But, with my recent move and unpacking and internet issues (oh my!), there is no way for me to take the time to host an entire CAL this year. So, I am super excited to join forces with a group of designers and host a HUGE Christmas in July CAL.
How the 2018 Christmas in July CAL Works
Pia from Stitches n Scraps and Marie from Underground Crafter have teamed up with 14 crochet designers to bring you a month full of patterns to kick start the handmade holiday season. Each week will have a theme.
Week 1 (July 2-6): Babies, Kids, and Teens
Week 2 (July 9-13): Home
Week 3 (July 16-20): Women
Week 4 (July 23-27): Men
Week 5 (July 30-31): Roundup of Roundups and End-of-CAL giveaway
During Weeks 1-4, new patterns will be released from Monday through Thursday. On Fridays, visit Stitches n Scraps and Underground Crafter for even more gift ideas and to learn more about great end-of-CAL giveaway prizes from Page Street Publishing, Global Backyard Industries, LoveCrafts, and Akerworks.
Share your completed project pictures in this post on Underground Crafter by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday, July 31, 2018 to enter for your chance to win!
