It’s the 3rd year that Fasten Off has been running for, and this year’s seasonal event is featuring 109 designers, and over 4,300 patterns – and 1,062 of those are crochet or Tunisian crochet!

The event is filled with activities and games, includes lots of opportunity for chatting on various social media channels. Makers can get as involved as they feel comfortable with, on the channels they feel comfortable on.

To participate in the stitchalong, you just have to start a project using a purchasable pattern from any of the participating designers. You can check out the YAL database which lists every participating designer and all of the patterns.

At a time of year when many of us are in a hurry to finish Christmas gift items, this event is a great way to stitch along with other makers.
