Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Long Island Knitting Guild. We had an excellent turn out of almost one hundred people, which is one of the largest turn outs I have ever seen at a guild. It was such a delight to speak to these wonderful women, who are so passionate and knowledgeable about their craft. I couldn’t wait to tell them all about our new Lion Brand Yarn Studio and all the exciting things it has to offer. They loved getting a back stage pass into our company and were so intrigued by its family history.
What I love most about speaking at guilds are the thought-provoking questions and customer feedback. I think also it’s great when people give us fresh ideas for new colors and textures. Talking first-hand with the people who use our yarns is one of the most rewarding parts of going to these guilds.
Thanks again to everyone at the Long Island Knitting Guild for being so gracious and welcoming me into your circle!
Have a group of 50 or more in the tri-state area? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for Jack to come speak to your guild or yarncrafting group!
