Our annual Blog Tour is fast approaching and we are so excited to share some wonderful blogs and patterns by our fabulous Blogstars with you!
So, what is a Blog Tour and how does it work??
Each year, we ask our Blogstars to choose from some lovely yarn packs that we have put together ourselves. This year, there were 2 options, Autumn Leaves and Summer Pudding, (more about the packs later). They then go off and use their super crafty skills to design a pattern using the chosen pack.
As the name suggests, we visit a different Blogstars blog page each day. A tour if you will, where they will be offering a free pattern and a chance to win the pack used to make the pattern! Each Blogstar will have a unique link on their page for you to enter the giveaways.
You need to look out for the Blog Tour post each day on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to find out which Blogstar’s day it is and follow the link to their page. Our posts will go out at 10 am each day and you have until to 10 am the following day to enter. This gives you a whole 24 hours!
Each winner will be contacted individually by email so keep an eye out and check your junk boxes too! The winner will be announced on Social Media each week also.
The tour will start on September 29th and end on October 15th so that’s 17 days and chances to win a pack of yarn!
So, let’s talk more about the yarn packs! This year, the packs are Autumn Leaves, which is made up of 5 shades of our NEW Bellissima yarn and Summer Pudding, which is made up of 3 Bellissima shades and 2 Bambino shades. The packs can be purchased from participating stockists and we have a list of some of them here-
