Welcome to the Crafter's Giveaway through Valerie Knits! This is the first giveaway I have organized, so I hope everyone enjoys it. I have participated in a number of giveaways that were geared towards photographers, and I started thinking that it would be nice if there was a giveaway for people like me.... Crafters with small businesses. While that was my original target audience for the giveaway, I hope that the items being offered will appeal to an even wider audience.

Here are the rules. I'm listing all the vendors below and providing links to their Facebook pages, Etsy shops or websites. Please go visit the Facebook pages and "like" each one. If you want, you can add the Etsy shops to your favorites. This isn't required, but would be awesome so you can see when they post new items. You can leave some love on the vendors walls on Facebook, but this isn't required either. After you have liked all the FB pages leave a comment on this blog post stating that you have done so. This is your first entry and is required to enter the giveaway.

You can earn a second entry by posting about this giveaway. Make your Facebook status something along the lines of "I entered the Crafter's Giveaway through @Valerie Knits. Check out http://www.ValerieKnitsandSpins.blogspot.com to find out how you can enter too" then comment on this blog post stating that you have done this and you will get a second entry.

Post about this giveaway through your Facebook Fan page and leave a comment on the blog stating that you did this and you will get another entry.

Leave a comment on the blog stating what some of your favorite items were from some of our vendors (you don't have to state an item from EVERY vendor, just a few) and you will earn another entry.

That's 4 chances to win! Please post each entry in a separate comment so I can keep track of them.

Now, on to the vendors! One lucky person will win all of the following goodies! You have until April 16th to enter.
