Meeting Moogly, Lily Chin and You. . . and Hosting A Game Show At The Knit & Crochet Show

I just returned from the 2015 Knit & Crochet Show in San Diego where Lion Brand Yarn sponsored a lounge area. Knitters and crocheters could rest and chat in the lounge, and I filmed interviews for my Tea With Shira web series.  It was a fun, heartwarming and inspiring three days where I got to meet a lot of my new online friends from all over the world.  We also asked some attendees to participate in a hilarious game show, which you can see at the bottom of this post.

We showed our newest yarns and showcased our exclusive LB Collection® Yarn made up of  Baby Alpaca, Silk, Superwash Merino and Cashmere to mention a few.

I know as a knitter/crocheter myself, I need to touch and feel yarns before I buy, so this was a perfect opportunity for people to get a taste of yarns that they might not see anywhere else.

I interviewed blogger Tamara Kelly, also known as "Moogly" and discovered the secret behind that wacky name.  I interviewed longtime friend, Lily Chin -- best known to you as the world's faster crocheter, but near and dear to my heart as the person who taught me how to tie my shoes when I was 5 years old. I also sat down with Margaret Hubert, who is so talented, and we shared a heartfelt moment on camera. Look for these interviews in weeks to come!

I also loved seeing people’s creativity, and that they're using Lion Brand Yarn!

On our last day, we ventured onto the Marketplace floor for a little trivia game. Winners got skeins from our LB Collection® and our new yarn Scarfie (who doesn’t love free yarn!?) Check it out in the video below!
