You might remember that last year I participated in the Annual MEGA sale event. The event is organised by Jennifer from A Crocheted Simplicity among designers as a little Black Friday/Cyber Monday treat, with prizes to be won and discounts to be added to your cart. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are hot in the United States, and while they might not be such a big deal on this side of the pond (yet), I think it’s a nice way to kick off the holiday season. So I’m part of the MEGA sale this year too!
What is the Annual MEGA Sale?
From Wednesday November 21st to Monday November 26th (Midnight EST, so 06:00 GMT+1) all of the participating designers will give you a discount on the patterns in their shop with the coupon code ENABLER. Many of us have set up a system where you get more discount when you add more patterns, so it might definitely be worth your while to add a few extra patterns to your cart and see what happens! There are also big prizes to be won via Facebook, which I’ll explain more about in a moment.
Who are participating this year?
This year we’ve got 20 designers who are joining in, both established and up-and-coming designers. If there are any patterns you fancy, now is the time to add them to your cart!
Designers and some generous sponsors chipped in to put together several prizes that can be won during this event! The prizes can be won through several games and selections.
Game #1: The Facebook hop
Prize: 1 pattern of choice from each designer!
How do you participate? All designers have posted a Facebook post with a link to the next designer. Answer the question in each Facebook post, and hop on to the next! If you’ve answered all 20 posts, your name will be put in to win this prize. The winner will be selected and announced on November 22nd. You can start the Facebook hop here.
Game #2: Simon Says
Prize: This is the big giveaway with several prizes such as Etsy gift cards, yarn kits, crochet hooks and yarn bowls!
How do you participate? This giveaway runs during the event. Each designer will post several graphics during the event, and each graphic gives you a chance to win. The graphics will tell you to play a little game called ‘Simon Says’. If Simon says that you have to post a picture of your favourite pattern in the comments, do so. If Simon says you should visit the designer’s store, do that too! It’s really straightforward, trust me. From all the Simon Says-posts winners will be chosen and will be announced on Jennifer’s blog on November 27th. You can find the Simon Says-posts on Facebook.
I’m excited, and I hope you are too! Have you found some patterns that you’re definitely going to get during the sale? Let me know in the comments!
