Old Yarns & New Friends at the NYC Crochet Guild

January 27th, 2010

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of speaking to the New York City Crochet Guild. We had a great turn out of over seventy people. I truly enjoyed watching the proud participants of this group show off their latest projects and designs. I was able to show them all of the exciting new yarns that we have for this year, such as Hometown USA, Amazing, the LB Collection, and some new yarns that have yet to be introduced.  When I asked how many of the ladies had been to the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the majority of the members had visited the store and absolutely loved it. I have attached some pictures for the meeting for your viewing pleasure.

My favorite part of the night was when one of the ladies, Irene, donated some vintage Lion Brand yarns to our archives. She donated some great oldies like Glitter Knit, Pamela, and Molaine that was made in Italy. She even gave us a sport yarn that was 100% pure wool that came out way before my time that was article number 804 with an old dye-cut label. Being that I love to collect vintage Lion Brand items for our archives, this was most exciting.

One of the greatest take away from visiting guilds around the country is all of the insightful feed back that I receive. I love going back to the office the next day and sharing all of the wonderful things I learned with the rest of the Lion Brand team. I can’t wait to visit my next guild.
