February 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 2/27 -3/3.  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.

DAY 1 & 2

1.   Post 1 item from your shop on Day 1 ( Monday) you would like others to promote. Post your 2nd item on Day 2 ( Tuesday). 

2. Promote each item posted for Day 1 & Day 2 on at least one of your social media sites.   Let's take a look at some of the items from Day 1 & Day 2.

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. Nice collections! Thanks All too for your promos! :)

  2. Great promotion week! Thanks to everyone!

  3. It was a great week! Thanks to everyone and especially Amy for all the hard work.
