  • Professional Development Day at the Knit & Crochet Show with Lion Brand and the CGOA

    Have you ever attended a Knit & Crochet Show sponsored by the TKGA (The Knitting Guild of America ) and CGOA (Crochet Guild of America)? If you're near the Charlotte, North Carolina area - you're in luck because the Knit & Crochet Show will be in town next week (Oct. 2-6)!

    The Knit & Crochet show is a wonderful 4 day event, where you have the opportunity to take advantage of classes taught by some of your favorite knit and crochet designers, meet new friends, purchase yarn, and just have a good ole time. If you only want to shop and don't want to sign up for classes, you can purchase a ticket for the marketplace onsite, and use the coupon to the right for a great "Buy One Get One Free" offer. Lion Brand will have a booth for shopping and we'll be carrying our newest yarn collections, so be sure to stop by and say hi to us.

    On October 2nd, before the classes start and the marketplace opens, the CGOA will host Professional Development Day, which is a one-day session in which you learn valuable tools of the trade when it comes to proposing and developing a book. You'll learn about how to write a book proposal, how to promote yourself, creative writing tips, and lots more.  This is a great educational and networking opportunity for those who are already established and for those who are aspiring professionals in the industry.  The CGOA committee has lined up some wonderful, knowledgeable experts in the field – you'll get to hear from Melissa Leapman, Lily Chin, and Vashti Braha - just to name a few! Click here to learn more about Professional Development Day.
