One of the most important things we do at Lion Brand is offer education through tips, techniques and step-by-step how-tos. That’s because we know that learning will enhance your ability to enjoy working with yarn.
This year, we asked ourselves how we can get more deeply involved in teaching knitters and crocheters all over the world to grow their skills in a way that can mimic the classroom setting. That’s where Craftsy came in. Craftsy is the premiere online education platform for crafters. We are combining Lion Brand’s beautifully designed patterns and quality yarns with Craftsy’s know-how in online education and their sophisticated, interactive technology.
The Craftsy classes allow you to slow down and repeat steps. In that way, it’s even better than an in-person class. But just like being in a real life classroom, you can also ask questions and get answers from the teacher.
For the first classes that are being launched, we selected several courses that we think are great for a variety of knitters. Patty Lyons, who helped create the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in New York City, teaches a class on cables and another on knitting techniques. Amy Ross, a Lion Brand designer, teaches a class on making your first sweater.
We invite you to try a Craftsy class a special introductory price of $19.99. That’s a 1/3 off the original price ($29.99). There’s no risk because you’re guaranteed to be pleased with the class or your money back.
Once you pay for a class, you own it and can refer to it whenever you want.
