If you’re looking for an amazingly entertaining, educational and fun outting, join about 85,000 people of all ages in the San Mateo County Expo Center at the end of May. Lion Brand will be a sponsor of Maker Faire for the third year in a row.  Other sponsors include Whole Foods, Google, and Yahoo.   You’ll see the do-it-yourself movement in full swing with exhibits and hands-on activities that include science, technology and crafts.

Stop by our booth for a special crafting project created especially for this event.  In June, we’ll introduce patterns for these beginner-level yarncrafting projects on our website!

If you’re in the NYC area, drop by the Spring Handmade Cavalcade, presented by the {NewNew} , an Etsy street team. The Handmade Cavalcade is a showcase/marketplace of handmade things from local artists, artisans, and crafters — stop by either Saturday or Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm at the Bell House in Brooklyn. It’s going to be a great opportunity to get some beautiful clothing, jewelry, home goods, and more — often from the people who made them!

Show up early and you may even get a goodie bag, with fun things, including a gift from Lion Brand!
