At the end of April, Andrea (one of our great Lion Brand Yarn Studio staffers) and I headed down to Atlanta, Georgia for Stitches South. It's only Lion Brand's second time to Stitches ever and our first time to Stitches South, so it was a exciting experience for us, as well as the hundreds of people who stopped by our booth to say hi!
As usual, we showed off the LB Collection and other new yarns like Amazing, we gave away free patterns, dozens of door prizes, raffle prizes, and more at the booth -- we even a huge basket of yarn at the Ravelry party. We also featured 3 different gorgeous garments at the Knitter's Magazine fashion show: the knit Modern Lodge Pullover in Amazing (pictured below left), the knit Dressmaker Detail Cardigan (pictured below right), and the beautiful crochet Lavish Lace Shawl, which got a big cheer from the crocheters in the audience.
Another highlight of the show is always seeing the what our customers have done with our yarn. Check out this beautiful beaded necklace that this lady knit in our LB Collection Wool Stainless Steel.
Finally, I also got a chance to meet some of the listeners of our podcast, YarnCraft, which I write and produce. It's always very rewarding to meet listeners in person and to know that they're enjoy what you do!
As always, it was wonderful to see and meet our customers, and we hope to see you at some of the upcoming events that we're attending:
We go to events throughout the year, so keep an eye on the blog and our official newsletter, The Weekly Stitch, for updates!
