If you follow Lion Brand on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll sometimes find behind scenes images from photoshoots, upcoming yarn releases – or even pictures of some of the staff crafting, or at events. Today, I’d like to share with you a few “behind the scenes” images from our offices in the New York City location. We recently invited a few of our favorite craft bloggers to spend a day with us at our Lion Brand offices, and I’d like to share a few of their images that capture some of the creativity and inspiration at Lion Brand.
|Kristy from Glass Posse captured this image of Karen Tanaka, the Creative Director of our Design Department. Karen was sharing some of the Design Department’s mood boards and inspirations.||Haley from The Zen of Making captured an image of these cute stuffed animals, which were featured in past window displays. The Lion can be seen here from the Studio’s 1st window display in 2008.|
|Carrie from This Mama Makes Stuff snapped a photo of the giant yarn crafted “Greetings from New York City” postcard, which was featured as the Lion Brand Yarn Studio’s summer window display in 2011.||Here is Lion Brand’s CEO, David Blumenthal with Allison from Petit Elefant and Haley, talking about the company’s family history, as shown in the “Lion Yarn Book”, Lion Brand’s book published in 1916.|
Carrie captured this great photo of one of the Design Department’s style guide boards. These images feature sketches of patterns that were designed for our Winter CHA 2012 Fashion Show. You can see the garments and learn about the designers if you click here.
If you haven’t been to the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, here’s a glimpse of just SOME of the yarn that we sell in the store.
Thank you to Haley, Carrie, Kristy, Marie and Allison for spending the afternoon with us! I suggest that you take a peek at these ladies’ websites where you can find DIY tutorials, fashion tips, recipes, ideas for crafting with kids and a lot more.
