    Nice contest for knitters to win yarn. I do crochet and knit, but mostly crochet. What about a chance for crocheters to win yarn.

  2. Sara Delaney Says:

    We’re just testing the waters with our first Instagram contest. We love crocheters and have contest plans in the works for you too!

    I don`t have and don`t want a instagam account. I don`t even have a cell phone. I don`t need it. I`m a senior living on a fixed income.

    Does my Instagram profile have to be public to participate in contests?

  5. Jennifer Says:

    What is Instagram? I’m a knitter not a techi.

  6. HL Says:

    I wish Webs (and lots of other craft places) would remember those of us who don’t twitter, tweet, follow instagram and such, and run fun stuff on “old-fashioned” email!!

  7. SavageCarmina Says:

    I agree! Can’t wait to see some love for the crocheters! 🙂

  8. JenTapler . Says:

    Looking forward to the crochet version! Live instagram and Webs! I don’t knit, but will definitely play along when there’s a contest for crocheters!

  9. sjp Says:

    I love it when I can connect with fellow crafters on social media. I’m sorry that you don’t share my enthusiasm, but there’s no way I’d be able to see how you or hundreds of others knit if you just sent an “old-fashioned email”. This is why technology exists and I applaud Webs for embracing it!

  10. Sara Delaney Says:

    Hi Sabrina, Unfortunately if your profile is private we won’t be able to see your post for the contest 🙁

  11. Sara Delaney Says:

    Hi Jennifer, It’s an image based social media site, you can learn more at

  12. Sabrina Says:

    Ok, thanks

  13. Hans Christersen Says:

    Well, I suddenly have an instagram account, now I just need to get my gadgets, that currently are in time-out on a shelf, to work with me in making a video. XD

  14. rp1917 Says:

    I agree with HL. Why not give opportunity to others who don’t use social media out of choice and just use plain e-mail s.

  15. Janelle S Says:

    In the future, you should know that if you use the hashtag, others will be able to see your image, even if it’s a private IG account.
