It’s just about the end of the Uplift Make Along, a three month event (which is extending a tad) created to support and bring visibility to designers who aren’t “famous” (yet!) in the fiber arts design community.
Some wonderful makers have generously donated prizes for the event participants (which could include you) – so here they are!
Winners for these prizes will be selected from posts made during the month of June and the first 2 weeks of July using the “Finished Object” topic tag in the Mighty Network for the Uplift Makealong as well as from FOs posted with the #UpliftMakeAlong hashtag on Instagram. A random number generator is used to select winners, and they are then matched with prizes that fit the craft they use and the location they are in.
Please check out the prize sponsors below – check out their shops too if you just can’t wait to see if you won the prize!
Crochet Luna creates beautiful, fun, and sassy pins as well as hand dyed yarn, crochet patterns, and other fun fiber arts swag!
Claudia has generously donated a 4-pack of pin-back buttons currently available in the CrochetLuna Etsy shop! If you love fun pins like the ones in the photo, be sure to check out Claudia’s shop here: CrochetLuna Etsy Shop and Instagram here: Crochet Luna on Instagram

Studio TwentyTwo & Voie de Vie Yarns
Janet from Studio TwentyTwo & Denise from Voie de Vie Yarns have teamed up to bring you another prize! Janet is offering a copy of one of her crochet patterns (available on Ravelry or Payhip) and Denise is offering two 100g skeins to make the pattern chosen!
(Ships to USA only)
Thank you both for teaming up to bring this wonderful prize to the UMAL!
This prize ships to USA or UK winners; if the winner drawn is from a country Amelia does not currently ship to (or shipping will be exorbitant) Nancy has a back-up solution as well and the winner will be able to chose from a bag maker closer to their home.
Please make sure you check out http://www.yarndatabase.com too!
“This searchable, sortable site is designed to help you keep track of your favorite designers and dyers across platforms, and find new favorites. It tracks knit and crochet designers, spinning fiber dyers and makers, and yarn spinners and dyers. You mark your favorites, and I’ll keep them up to date.
It’s a different approach than a pattern directory, more in keeping with “slow fashion” and building a community of makers. It de-emphasizes popularity algorithms in favor of finding makers you love.”
