Lion Brand® Yarn, a family-owned and operated yarn company, announces the official launch of a new web series with its newly appointed Brand Ambassador, Shira Blumenthal, a fifth generation member of the family. The new web series, Tea with Shira, was created to share the story of this 137-year-old brand directly with crafters in person and online. Tea with Shira launches with three videos including a Mother’s Day episode, where she interviews her mother, whose husband, David Blumenthal, is the President and CEO of the company.
Shira began working for the company in 2013 as an associate in the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, the company’s Flagship retail location in Manhattan, which is a global destination for yarn lovers. At the Studio, where customer service and education is key, she specialized in teaching children to knit and helped customers find the yarns and inspiration they were looking for.
Now, as an associate in the Marketing Department, Shira is part of a team that engages directly with consumers through conferences, email marketing and social media, including YouTube, Pinterest, Blogging, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Shira will be traveling the country to speak with knit and crochet guilds, as well as appearing in videos about Lion Brand® products, behind the scenes videos about the company, and starring in a new video series called Tea with Shira.
