Villagers, I'd love to give you a personal invitation to participate in Crochetville's 4th annual blog tour in honor of National Crochet Month. The tour will take place March 1 – 31, 2016. This year’s theme is “Come Along and Ride This Train.” Join us for a virtual passenger steam train ride on The Crochet Express as we visit with 93 crochet designers and up to 31 each yarn companies and crochet-friendly yarn stores.

 

Throughout the month we’ll be offering free daily giveaways. Our blog tour participants will be offering freebies, discounts, and more. You’ll want to visit our blog every day so you won’t miss a thing!

I’ve seen some designs that I’d like to share with you,
And I know some yarn stores that I’d like to take you through.
I will show you yarns that I am sure you’d like to see.
Come along and crochet with me.

 

Come along and ride this train.

Daily Discussion and Activities

 

Want to have fun chatting with a lot of enthusiastic crocheters from around the world about all the exciting things you find each day? You’ll want to join us on the Crochetville forum/message board and/or on our National Crochet Month Facebook group.

 

Since we’re taking a cross-country train trip, there will be plenty of time between stops during which we’ll be able to have show-and-tell sessions in the Observation Car with an afternoon snack and cocktails and a full dinner and dessert in our Dining Car (recipe links only; no actual food will be served through your internet connection).

 

Spread the Word

Don't forget: The Crochet Express leaves the station bright and early at 8:00 AM central time on March 1!

 

All the posts can be found on the Crochetville blog.

 

But all sorts of additional fun will be taking place here in The Crochdet Express: Crochetville's 4th annual blog tour folder.

 

We'll be talking about our daily favorite finds and sharing pictures of our current crochet projects with each other.

 

We know you're going to get hungry, so join us for daily virtual afternoon cocktails and appetizers and evening dinner and dessert (through some terrific recipe links).

 

Get your tickets ready. It's almost time to leave the station!
