Lion Brand Yarn Studio

Last week, Lion Brand Yarn Studio was featured on WFUV 90.7FM’s morning program, Cityscape. The segment explored the Studio as one of the many ways you can combat the cold and  “cabin fever” during the winter months.  Listen to our CEO, David Blumenthal and, our Studio Director, Gretchen Fancher discuss how Lion Brand has provided a fun, educational outlet for knitters, crocheters, and crafters alike.

Listen to the podcast here and then visit the Studio and start a new yarn project!

An Upcoming Birthday: the Lion Brand Yarn Studio Turns 5!

October 24th, 2013

One of my favorite things about working at our New York offices is that the Lion Brand Yarn Studio is just a short jaunt down the stairs—on the ground floor.

If you haven’t had a chance to visit, I highly recommend that you add it to your visiting-New-York-City to-do list. A showpiece space featuring fiber art, hundreds of shades of Lion Brand yarns, artisan tools, and dozens of classes—the Studio is more than a yarn store, it’s a love note to yarncrafters from Lion Brand, a haven from the busy New York City streets.
