September 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 month's Cross Promo Train was held 9/26 - 9/30.   We had 12 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.


1) Post 2 items from your shop you would like others to promote
2) You must favorite all items posted by each shop. Please remember to return later to favorite items posted after you. If you have extra time please share a few items on social media by tweeting, pinning, blogging, or sharing on other social media sites such as Wanelo and Facebook.

Let's take a look at a few items from Day 1.

1. Promote a minimum of 3 items from the shop BELOW you on the list.

2. Each item you choose to promote must be favorited. Then, feel free to promote the items by tweeting, pinning, blogging, or sharing on other social media sites such as Wanelo and Facebook. Fav the shop, follow the shop or maybe even doing a treasury or photo collage.

Please promote the same way you would like other shops to promote for you! As with all our games, do what you can and have time for.

Here's some of the amazing items that were promoted on Day 2.

2. Use team tags: Spsteam, cross promo

3. Please feel free to promote everyone's treasuries by tweeting, pinning, blogging, or sharing on other social media sites such as Wanelo and Facebook. 

 All of  the treasuries were great fun for me to view.  Here is a just a small taste of some of the treasuries made.

Thank you so much for joining me for another Cross Promo Train.  Hope to see you next time!


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. A great experience with supportive teammies!

  2. It was a great deal of fun! Thanks Amy!

  3. A great way to see each other's shops and have some fun.
    Thank you Amy for all your hard work in making this a great team.

  4. This was a terrific promotion! What a wonderful group of teamies!
    Thank you, Amy, for another wonderful promotion!

  5. It was a great promo! Thanks for organizing it, and thanks to my fellow SPS teamies!

  6. It was a wonderful opportunity to see some great items from other shops and to interact with other team mates. Thank you, Amy for leading this promotion again!
