National Crochet Month 2011

Crochetville Giveaway Click here to go to Crochetville.


What Is the Treasure Hunt?

In honor of National Crochet Month 2011, Crochetville is partnering with a number of indie designers, spinners, dyers, and hook and toolmakers to sponsor the Crochetville NatCroMo 2011 Treasure Hunt.
Each indie business has donated one or more special items for our super-special crochet gift basket that will be given to one lucky winner at the end of the Treasure Hunt.
We hope the Treasure Hunt will make Crochetville members and site visitors aware of some really fabulous crochet businesses and encourage everyone to spend some time browsing through the websites of our participating indie businesses.
Keep checking this thread as we will be posting photos of new items for the gift basket as our indie businesses confirm what they are donating.
How Does the Treasure Hunt Work?
Each participating business will have hidden this Treasure Hunt logo somewhere on their site by March 8. The contest does not officially start until March 8, so please don't waste time hunting for it before then since many businesses may not upload the logo until that day.
