How to Use the Customer Gallery in 3 Easy Steps

September 1st, 2011

Have you discovered the Customer Gallery at LionBrand.com? It’s an excellent place to share pictures of your work and get inspired by the projects others have loaded, all featuring Lion Brand yarns. The gallery is easy to access and very simple to use. To help you get started, I’ll show  you how I added my latest amigurumi, a Best Bunny I made in Lion Cotton, to the gallery in 3 easy steps.

Step 1: Access the Customer Gallery
To go the Customer Gallery, you can click here or click the Have you made this pattern? Send us a photo link at the very bottom of any Lion Brand online pattern. From the LionBrand.com homepage, you can navigate to the gallery by selecting the Community tab and then clicking the Customer Gallery option (it’s the second option in the list).

Step 2: Browse Through the Gallery & Add Your Project
Once you are in the gallery, feel free to look around! You can see over 3,300 projects there right now, and more are being added all the time. If you want to upload a project like I did, click the Click here to post it! link in the page description.

Step 3: Upload a Picture & Share Your Story
The next step is adding your work to the gallery. Here you can upload up to four pictures of your project, just be sure they are all in JPEG format. You can select a title (I chose “Margaret’s Best Bunny”) and fill in all the details about which yarn you used, how you liked the pattern and why you made it. Once you’re finished, click the orangesubmit button at the bottom of the page, and you’re done!

If you take a better picture later, or remember a helpful hint you’d like to share, you can go back and edit your gallery submission through your account at LionBrand.com. All projects uploaded to the gallery are reviewed before going online, so you should see your project in the gallery in 5 to 7 days.

If you like the gallery, why not upload a project of your own?  Leave us a comment to share which one is yours.
