As I mentioned over in Board Announcements, we've been so busy adjusting to and working with the new forum software (more info here and here), for those who haven't been around recently), we forgot to plan a birthday party for Crochetville!

But we're celebrating Crochetville's 9th birthday with a new tagline and we're giving away a $50 gift certificate (in USD) to the yarn-related online shopping site of the winner's choice!


Giveaway Rules:

Giveaway is open to all registered Crochetville members age 19 or older. If you don't yet have a Crochetville account, please register a free account before entering the contest.

Giveaway will be open through Wednesday, February 27, at 10:00 PM US central time.

Void where prohibited by law.

Each person may enter only ONE time. In the event of multiple entries, all entries by that person will be invalid. Be sure to enter only ONCE.

Winner will be selected via random drawing.

Winner will be announced on Thursday, February 28, on the Crochetville forum.


To enter, please click here and fill out our giveaway form.



:yay  Congratulations to our winner, detroitdeb! :yay

I would like to be entered into the contest.  My crochet skills have grown so much since I've joined Crochetville.  I'm still relatively new around here and I love it!  It's so nice to have a place where I can be encouraged in my passion for handmade crochet items.  Happy Birthday, Crochetville - may you have MANY MANY MANY more birthdays!

Happy Birthday Crochetville!  Thank you so much Donna and Amy!  I have been a member here for several years now and I have met and made some wonderful friends.  My crochet skills have grown tremendously thru being a member and I truly appreciate all that you do for us.  My days just aren't the same when I can't start them off by coming to the 'ville.  Now I have my fingers crossed that I might win a $50 gift cert for more yarn goodness! It can't get better than this! :D

There have been days that I was so down and I'd log on to the ville and spirits would lift, just listening to someone's funny story or being amazed at the items members have made.  I found Crochetville after losing my job and it's been a constant source of  freindships and help.  Thank you Amy & Donna for all that you do.  Oh thanks for the giveaway too.
