February Cross Promo Train

 Train Cross Stitch Pattern

The Cross Promo Train is  held  at the end of each month on the SPS Team .  All team members are welcome to sign up.  The sign up thread is posted a few days before the Cross Promo Train starts. We do different promotional activities each day throughout the 5 day event.  

 We had February's Cross Promo Train February 23- 27. It's amazing to see how much effort every person puts into promoting every day; going beyond what is required.  I'd like to thank all the people who took part, and all the hard work they put forth.  

Pull up a chair, sit back, and relax while you enjoy viewing the great items from February's Cross Promo Train.

Hi I'm Amy. In my shop I offer a variety of crocheted items and occasionally I list vintage crochet & knitting pattern books. I enjoy working on custom orders. My customers often come up with the best creative ideas; and sometimes offer me the challenge of creating something I've never done before. It’s always satisfying to take a piece of yarn and create something new from it.



  1. Thanks for taking the time to do an overview of the week. Lots of work, but rewarding.

  2. Great blog Amy, you do so much work for this team.

  3. Great blog, lot's of fun. Thanks Amy!!

  4. Wonderful blog! Thank you Amy, I will share!
