One of the Greatest Parts of My Job

I was delighted to receive a beautiful thank you note from the Westchester Knitting Guild last week. It made my day to know that my hard work and efforts were so greatly appreciated. One of the greatest parts of my job is going to speak at guilds and other yarn-loving organizations because it allows me to share the Lion Brand story and interact with our customers on a personal level. Meeting with the Westchester Knitting Guild is always such a pleasure; they are such a delightful group! I would especially like to thank Olive McNeil for being so gracious and welcoming. You ladies are the greatest!
