We have decided to recognize individual customers who have made extraordinary contributions to the Lion Brand community.  The people we select will receive free samples of new yarns and new yarn colors.   We’re hoping that our Star Contributors will share their impressions of new products with us.

So, who will be recognized as a Star Contributor?

These will be people who are active in the community in some or all of the following ways:

. . . well, you get the idea!

As our first star, we would like to recognize Grace Jones who makes helpful comments on our Facebook page and blog, is involved in Lion Brand fan groups on Ravelry, has visited our Studio, listened to the podcast and assists other customers online whenever possible.  Here’s what Grace said when we told her she was our choice:

“Sometimes I feel like an unofficial Lion Brand spokesperson. . . I think my brand loyalty comes from the fact that Lion Brand website was a huge help when I was learning to knit on my own, and the availability and range of yarns . . . is a primary source for yarns.  ”

Thank you, Grace, for being a valuable contributor to the Lion Brand community.

Are you a Star Contributor or do you know someone who is?  Let us know!
