This weekend, the Lion Brand team will be out at the New York Hall of Science in Queens for the FIRST EVER World Maker Faire–bringing our favorite DIY festival, featuring everything from food to robots to rockets to hand-crafts to our hometown of NYC.

In the area this weekend? Come by this two-day event (Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 25 and 26) and–of course–stop by our booth. We’ll be featuring knitting and crochet lessons, weaving on a backstrap loom, machine knitting, and craft projects–and of course, lots and lots of YARN!

What other amazing things are happening with yarn? We’ll also have an incredible mini-NYC skyline and Coney Island amusement park made with yarn, and our friends, artists Robyn Love and Amy Caterina Hill will also be at the event. Robyn will be decorating one of the famous rockets with blocks knit and crocheted out of Hometown USA, while Amy will be showcasing her Fun Fur-covered car.

It’s going to be an amazing time for the whole family, and we really hope that we’ll see you there!
