Dear Friend,

Did you know that of the millions who knit and crochet in America, two million are men and boys? The Wall Street Journal featured men and knitting this week in a piece called, "A Growing, Tightknit Group of Men". Lion Brand® Yarn Studio associates Claire Cromwell and Darrin Morris are quoted! If you're a man who knits or crochets and lives in the NYC area, the Studio's next Men's Night happens on September 11th.

If you've made a comfort shawl (or a healing/prayer shawl) for someone tell us about it and you could be selected to receive $100 worth of Lion Brand® Homespun® yarn.

Throughout September we'll be sharing health tips (related to knitting and crochet) every day - so watch for them on Facebook and Twitter.

We hope that you enjoy this very carefully edited edition of the Weekly Stitch!

With Warm Regards,
Your Friends at Lion Brand

Hand Carved Amish Looms: The End Of An Era Send to a Friend Share on Facebook Tweet this

Joe built his entire home by himself with the help of some neighbors and had made his living as a carpenter. As a hobby, he started crafting looms from local wood. They were beautiful works of art. Eventually a few of his neighbors started using the looms to make shawls and blankets and sell them. The women who used the looms loved to work with Homespun® because of its silky feel and the fact that it worked so well with the loom.

Now Joe is retired so there won't be any more looms. We're selling the last of the inventory, although we'll definitely be keeping one as a keepsake. If you'd like a piece of history and a beautiful object crafted lovingly by hand, now is your chance. One of a kind made by one person in the world doesn't last forever.
