Great Customer Projects from STITCHES Midwest!

One of the best parts of attending craft shows like STITCHES Midwest for me is seeing projects that customers have made with Lion Brand yarn. Some customers approach me shyly, while others proudly brandish their handiwork. They’re often surprised when I enthusiastically ask to take their pictures, they have no idea how gratifying these moments are for me! Check out some of my favorite finds from the last show!

The highlight of the show was definitely when designer Lily Chin came to our booth wearing a girl scout costume that she made with Recycled Cotton  in Seagrass, Kitchen Cotton in Olive, and Bonbons in Brights and Celebrate were for her badges.

*Please note: this is an original design so no pattern is available*

  • You have got to love the creative spirit that is Lily Chin!

  • Any chance of getting that poncho pattern out of a back issue or something? Or someone talented putting a similar one together?

    • Hi Lisa, since we’re not sure where the pattern came from, I can’t tell you what magazine to contact, but check as a great resource for patterns that might be similar (or check their groups, where there are people who can help you to find a particular pattern).

  • im having a hard time finding the kitchen cotton, today i travelled 200 miles to wausau wi to jo-anns fabric where lions brand told me i could find kitchen cotton,also went across the rd to michaels both stores said <> very dissapointed,,

    • Hi Bridget, I’m sorry to hear that. Our store locator simply tells you which stores in your area are supposed to carry our yarns; however, each store (especially the case with
      larger chain stores) will vary in the selection of the individual store, so we do recommend that you call ahead if you’re looking for something specific.

      We do sell Kitchen Cotton on our website, and we’re currently offering free shipping on orders of $35+, so keep that in mind as an alternative way to buy. Here’s a link to the product page:

  • I can’t believe it! I made that same poncho and still have it somewhere. It is the only pattern that I ever was asked to make to sell. I remember I sold it for $20 plus yarn to a lady I met at the grocery store.

    • Would love to know where to find it!
