AmiguruMAY 2020: daily prompts to get inspiration for your post and share it on Instagram from the 1st to 31st of May

AmiguruMAY 2020 Instagram Challenge for amigurumi makers and designers

Are you reading about AmiguruMAY for the first time? Please read this blog post or this instagram post!

AmiguruMAY is an Instagram Challenge for all crochet lovers, amigurumi makers and designers. The challenge is about posting everyday on Instagram (photo + caption) following the daily prompts throughout May 2020. Find the inspiration from the prompts and the amazing amigurumi community!

Why you should join in?

Everyone can have a different motivation… because you love crochet and amigurumi, to find new Instagram profiles with same interests, even get new friends! Discover new techniques/yarn/patterns. Grow your Instagram community thanks to daily posts and interactions. Or simply because you love challenges. And this is a fun challenge! Don’t forget to use the hashtags #amiguruMAY and #amiguruMAY2020

Do you think you can’t participate every day?

This is a “challenge” which means we should push ourselves a bit further trying something new even though it seems tough, but it’s also a fun event! So feel free to set your own challenge, following your needs and rhythm (these months are hard enough for many of us…)
