Aside from bringing you thousands of free patterns, hundreds of yarn selections, and this resourceful blog to read, Lion Brand provides many different opportunities to encourage yarn crafting related engagement online.
Connect with Others
For instance, if you're interested in finding a charity that you'd like to donate knit or crochet items to, you can search the Charity Connection section of LionBrand.com, which will help you find a charity based on your interests and place of location.
If you are interested in finding knit or crochet clubs in your area to meet up with some folks and craft together, use our Directory of Knitting and Crochet Clubs to locate groups in your area. You can search for groups by name, or most importantly - by zip code or address to find a club closest to your place of interest. Knitting or crocheting in groups can be a great experience; it allows you to enjoy and share your hobby or passion with others. It's also a great place to be in case you need some help with a project or want to help others.
Finally finished that WIP (Work In Progress)? Proud of your latest project? Definitely stop by our Customer Gallery and upload pictures of your projects. We love to see our patterns come to life by fans like you, and occasionally post round ups of some submitted projects on the blog. Click here to see a roundup of some really great project submissions from our National Craft Month celebratory post earlier this year.
I also suggest that if you're not already on Ravelry - a website designed for yarn crafters to share patterns, upload pictures, chat in forums, keep track of projects, and more - then you should definitely join! Ravelry is a great place to connect with people online and find inspiration. I suggest you check out the Lion Brand Cafe, a general Ravelry Forum that discusses all things Lion Brand.
You can also stay up to date with new Lion Brand product releases, get useful tips, find patterns, find out about contests and giveaways, and a lot more by subscribing to our free weekly newsletter. You'll definitely be "in the know" with this fun e-mail in your inbox every week. (Below, you'll find a sneak peek at what our Weekly Stitch Newsletter looks like)
