It’s here, it’s here, it’s here! The first annual Fall with SweetGeorgia Make Along (MAL) kicks off TODAY! Head on over to the Sweet SweetGeorgia Ravelry Group to share your ideas, thoughts, and in-progress pics!
If this is the first time you are hearing about the MAL, here’s some details for you:
Dates: The MAL will run from October 11 – November 8. You can absolutely join in any time, throughout the MAL, with no pressure or stress. The goal is to ignite creativity to see what delight comes out. On November 10th, we’ll share some of your finished projects, as well as announce winners for our FAB prizes!
Live Video Chats: You read that right! There will be two very special video Make Along chats where we’ll craft together! It’s the perfect opportunity to ask questions, connect with fellow fiber artists, and savor friendship. The video chats will run for an hour on October 20 and November 3, both at 1pm EST. We’ll post more information on how to join in a little later.
Blog: Here on the SweetGeorgia blog, we’ll share a few posts with tips, advice, and our own progress. We’ll link to them from the Sweet SweetGeorgia Ravelry Group so you won’t miss a thing.

Rules of the MAL
- Have fun! This is about creative self-discovery, so break out of the box to try something new.
- Your project can be anything, but it must use SweetGeorgia Yarn or Fiber. And did we mention we have a special sale just for our sweet MAL superstars? Use code SGYMAL2016 at check out for to get free shipping on all orders over $75.
- You don’t have to finish your project by the deadline to participate (even though we really hope you do)! We do ask that you share pics in-progress with us on our Ravelry group, though, so we can cheer you along!
What Can I Make?
For this Make Along, you can knit, crochet, spin, or weave. In fact, as long as you are using SweetGeorgia yarn or fiber, you can make anything! Since you’ll be surrounded by so much support, perhaps this is a good time to try something new. Or maybe you need something soft, soothing, and comforting for the approaching cold season. For our knitters in the bunch, we of course hope you’ll consider one of our Fall with SweetGeorgia, Vol. 2 patterns, or any of the amazing patterns we’ve bundled on Ravelry. The sky’s the limit!
