March's Cross Promo Train

Welcome to this month's Cross Promo Train.  The Cross Promo Train is  monthly game on the SPSTeam .  All team members are welcome to sign up.  The sign up thread is posted a week before the Cross Promo Train starts. We do different promotional activities each day throughout the 5 day event. This months Cross Promo Train was held 3/21 - 3/25.   We had 16 amazing shops join us this month.

 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.  Let's take a look at each shop & each day's activities.

2) You must favorite all items posted by each shop. Please remember to return later to favorite items posted after you. If you have the time you can also click on & view the item. You must leave the item open for 15 seconds for it to count as a view. 

Feel free to also promote the items on the list by tweeting, pinning, blogging, or sharing on other social media sites such as Wanelo and Facebook. Or even do a treasury for some of the items :)

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. Thank you all for taking part in the Cross Promo Train ! You all did amazing each day!


  2. Amy, you are the best! Thanks for all your efforts. We appreciate all your hard work, bless you!

  3. Very nice, Amy! It really is a great promo!

  4. Great promotion! Cool treasuries! Sorry I missed it!

  5. Fantastic selection of items, coming from a simply fantastic team!! Well done!
