3. 26Oct19 Bonus Random Surprise Giveaway scheduled for 25November19!

I’ve had enough PDF written Pattern sales in Ravelry to trigger one paid PDF written pattern gift from your “Ravelry designer of choice” that is less than $10.00!!! I will pick one person who has purchased at least one of my paid PDF written patterns during the month of October or November 2019!!! I will be picking one lucky person at random on 25November2019 for Thanksgiving week!!! I will be contacting the person via email and asking what Ravelry paid PDF written pattern they would like to be gifted to them. It can be “any” Ravelry designer. I have had one Etsy purchase, but they will be included in the random free drawing too. So, any purchases on Etsy will also count. So, crochet PDF written pattern treasure hunters Happy Crocheting!!!

Crochet Outstanding Amigurumi Contest for the year 2019:

This contest is now closed. Prize winners please contact me to claim your prizes. Here is the direct contact link: Helenmay Crochet ContactAt the beginning of the year 2019, I took a Facebook poll to see if crocheters wanted a contest or giveaway this year. The winning poll vote was for a Crochet Large Amigurumi Contest. Some people asked if I could add some medium-sized crochet amigurumi, and I said yes. Deadline is 1Sept2019. If you would like to participate in my Crochet Amigurumi Contest, here is the direct link for the rules/guidelines:

Crochet Outstanding Amigurumi Contest for the year 2019

 

 

During the timeframe 01Jan2019 until 22Jun2019, if you already purchased my Ravelry paid Crochet PDF written patterns, and/or my Paid Bundled Crochet Written patterns on my blog, your email is automatically entered into my random free giveaway for a $25 Etsy gift card (This random free giveaway is now closed). I will email a random winner, until I receive a response from someone that wants to receive the free $25 Etsy gift card via email. I am not responsible for lost emails. I am not responsible for anything that you purchase on Etsy using your free $25 Etsy gift card. I am not sponsored by Etsy. If you participate in any of my Contests and/or Giveaways then you agree to abide by my rules and guidelines. You must be at least 18 years of age to participate.

There are too many names to put into a box/bag for a drawing. So I will put the letters of the alphabet in a box/bag as well as numbers 1-10. Either I or my husband will draw one letter and one number from the box/bag. I will look at my generated list of all entries and find the drawn number with the drawn letter for the last name. For example, If I draw a letter “C” and a number 8, I will count the “C’s” until I get to 8, even if I have to go through the generated list more than once. I want to make it as fair and random as possible.

Here is how the email conversation went with the winner:

“Hello! I held a random free giveaway for people that purchased one of my PDF written patterns between the time frame 01Jan19 until 21Jun19. My husband picked the letter “S” and the number 3. Your email was the 3rd “S” on my Ravelry PDF written pattern purchase list on 1Mar19. You have won a free $25 Etsy Gift Card. If you would like to accept it, I will use this email to send you the free gift card.”

Very Respectfully,
Helenmay Crochet
I didn’t receive a reply all day, so I emailed back saying that the person had 24 hours to respond before I picked a new winner. The next day, I received this email:

“Hello Helen,

You mean I finally won something?  In 71 years, I think I have one 4 things.  If this is not a joke, I would gladly accept your gift card.  Maybe more yarn in the future?? Thank you very much.  I would love to accept your 25$ gift card.  How would I use it on Etsy?

Sincerely,
Nancy
I emailed Nancy back with her free $25 Etsy gift card, and I also gave her this link:
I have never used an Etsy gift card before, but it appears that you have to redeem it first before making purchases.
Congratulations Nancy!! Thank you for following my crochet work on Helenmay Crochet YouTube Channel!!
