Did you know we have an outlet store in NJ just fifteen minutes from Manhattan? I like to call it a fairyland of yarn. Many first time visitors walk through the doors and do a happy dance. This is the nicest store of its kind I have come across and that is saying a lot because I have been selling yarn for 34 years and my father sold yarn for 40 years before that. Through the years I have prided myself on giving good advice to the retailers I have worked with on merchandising, lighting, security, environment, etc. But I never thought I would be using this stored intellectual energy to Lion Brand’s benefit and that gives me great pleasure, pride, and a feeling of accomplishment.

I came across this photo of a traditional Seder plate a few years ago and every year at this time I look at it and smile. I am glad to have the opportunity this year to share this photo with all of its colors, shapes, and textures with our readers. I hope it brings a smile to your faces too. This time of year is about redemption and freedom for me and I wish that upon every person from every nation. Whatever holiday you celebrate, I am sending wishes of peace and joyfulness.
If you live in or have traveled to New York City, you may have seen the window displays in our flagship Yarn Studio. What you may not know is these designs are a source of pride for the Lion Brand team. They are the most creative vehicle we have at our disposal and the simplest way to demonstrate what is important to us as a company. At Lion Brand we believe in creating a more colorful, connected, and giving world and we use our display designs to send that message to our customers and community. If you follow our designs, you will notice that once a year we dedicate the space to a charitable endeavor.
