Behind the Scenes with Martha Stewart

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks at Lion Brand preparing for the Martha Stewart show which airs on Monday, March 23rd.  Our Design team has been working on special projects that were created especially for the show.

The producer visited our Studio and met with our president, David Blumenthal and our creative team headed by Karen Tanaka in an initial planning meeting.   A week later, Martha taped a segment in the Lion Brand Studio on which we blogged about on March 6th.  To get less than a 5 minute segment, the camera crew came at 7:30 a.m. and were in the Studio or our Design Department until 7:00 p.m. that night.  Martha brought her dogs, Sharkey and Francesca to the studio and they were fitted for sweaters that were designed by Lion Brand.

You’ll be able to get the patterns from our website by the time the show airs on Monday.

Here are some videos of the filming in our Studio:

    Zontee says: Hi Cheryl, you can catch a second showing of Martha’s shows on the Fine Living channel, the day after they air. For more information, click here OR catch it on her website.

  • Great show on Martha Stewart. I hadn’t realized the whole show would be yarn related. So nice to see Liz and put a face to the voice. I am definitely going to make one of the yarn caddies.

  • Great Show…but where is the link to the dog sweater pattern? That was one of the best fitting dog sweaters EVER!!
