  • Meeting the Charity Crafters at the Lion Brand Yarn Outlet

    Shopping at the Lion Brand Yarn OutletOne of the things I liked best about being out on the road with sales was meeting yarncrafters face to face. Now that I spend more time working with the Lion Brand Yarn Outlet here in New Jersey, it’s still a treat for me to talk to knitters and crocheters in person, and to see their faces light up when they see all our colorful yarns and supplies.

    Last week several ladies from the Cedar Crest Retirement Community in Pompton Plains came out in dreary Monday morning rain to pay a visit to the Outlet. The ladies came in, shook off the weather and strolled through the rows and rows of vibrant yarns stocked on the shelves.

  • Finding Lion Brand Yarns at Your Local Store

    Many of you have written to us about not being able to find your favorite Lion Brand yarns at your local stores and have encouraged us to offer more there.  We thought we would give you a little behind-the-scenes info about how our yarns end up in your local store to help you understand what you'll find.

    Lion Brand offers over 800 different yarn colors and over 45 different types of yarns.  The major retail chains that carry yarn--Michaels, JoAnn Fabrics, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby and Walmart--as well as the smaller stores, could not possibly have room for all of our yarns in the space they have available in their yarn department.  Of course, we would love for them to offer a wider selection of Lion Brand but we don't control what retailers offer.  As a result, you will often find a good selection of the most popular Lion Brand yarns like Vanna's Choice®, Homespun®, and Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® in many retail outlets, but you may not see some of our cult favorites like Cotton-Ease®, Wool-Ease®, or Recycled Cotton.  But even if you find a popular yarn like Homespun®, no one store will carry nearly 60 colors.

    We know that everyone has her favorite yarns and colors so if you'd like your local store to carry your favorites, don't hesitate to ask them.  You can write on their Facebook page, if they have one, you can email their corporate office, or you can ask a store manager for the yarn and color you like.  When enough people demand the same product, it may push your local store to carry it.

    If all else fails, we have every single yarn and color on our website, LionBrand.com.  Plus, we have something extra online, which is the exclusive LB Collection of fine fibers at value prices.

  • In Her Own Words: A Customer Review of Lion Brand Yarn Studio

    Alice of OMG! Heart has written a wonderful review of our retail store, the Lion Brand Yarn Studio [LBYS] in NYC. Not only do her kind words make us blush, but they also highlight some of our favorite aspects of the store.

    Alice writes:

    It’s the perfect combination of local yarn shop along with what I’m looking for in an NYC yarn shop! Personal yet professional attention. Unlikely on first glance since Lion Brand Yarns is actually a large nationwide company that you’d normally associate with a more mass market approach. But no. Their lovely bright studio, 2 floors, has all the character and style of a small boutique store but without the prices and all the comforts and perks a large store can afford!

    You can read her full post by clicking here, which goes into our free help, classes, groups, and more. But don't just take OMG! Heart's word for it: next time you're in the New York City area, come check out LBYS for yourself. We're sure you'll "heart" us, too!

    The Lion Brand Yarn Studio is located at 34 West 15th Street, New York, NY 10011.
