Congratulations to Grace Jones, Our First “Star Contributor”

We have decided to recognize individual customers who have made extraordinary contributions to the Lion Brand community.  The people we select will receive free samples of new yarns and new yarn colors.   We’re hoping that our Star Contributors will share their impressions of new products with us.

So, who will be recognized as a Star Contributor?

These will be people who are active in the community in some or all of the following ways:

. . . well, you get the idea!

As our first star, we would like to recognize Grace Jones who makes helpful comments on our Facebook page and blog, is involved in Lion Brand fan groups on Ravelry, has visited our Studio, listened to the podcast and assists other customers online whenever possible.  Here’s what Grace said when we told her she was our choice:

“Sometimes I feel like an unofficial Lion Brand spokesperson. . . I think my brand loyalty comes from the fact that Lion Brand website was a huge help when I was learning to knit on my own, and the availability and range of yarns . . . is a primary source for yarns.  ”

Thank you, Grace, for being a valuable contributor to the Lion Brand community.

Are you a Star Contributor or do you know someone who is?  Let us know!

    A book of photographs by Pogus Caesar celebrating Britain’s iconic black musicians is to be published next month.

    The book features evocative, nostalgic and largely unpublished images of musical legends like Stevie Wonder, Grace Jones and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.

    Most of Caesar’s photography is based around his home city of Birmingham, documenting a spectrum of well-known personalities and recording significant events including the Handsworth riots, Birmingham tornado and the regeneration of the Bullring.

    “These images record a unique period in what would come to be called black British life,” remarks author and historian Paul Gilroy.

    “Pogus Caesar’s emphatically analog art is rough and full of insight. He conveys the transition between generations, mentalities and economies.”

    Legendary reggae artists figures prominently, and appropriately, in the Caesar image canon – Burning Spear, The Wailers, Augustus Pablo, Rita Marley, Mighty Diamonds, Black Uhuru, Sly Dunbar, Steel Pulse etc. The photographer cites reggae itself is a significant influence, reflecting his own St Kitts background in the Eastern Caribbean.

    The launch of Muzika Kinda Sweet follows an exhibition of the work at the Oom Gallery in Birmingham earlier this year.

  • All these beautiful musicans in one book! The more of these that are published the better – provides a historical document for future generations. And a great title Muzika kinda sweet ! There’s more Pogus Caesar work on his web OOM Gallery.
