While you might be one of the only crafters you know IRL (‘in real life’), there’s a wide world of fellow makers at your fingertips! And we’d love to put you in touch. When we re-share a post of yours, it’s like – an introduction. We’re saying, ‘here’s someone you’ll just love!’ to all our favorite followers. If you see a post you like, we hope you’ll ‘double-tap’ to give it a heart. Maybe even pop over to their profile to learn more about them & their projects. You might just meet a fellow crafter, near or far, with whom you have something in common! Whether you’re both learning a new stitch, or can’t stop casting on in mustard yellow, it’s the little things that can blossom into friendship.
In addition to making new friends, you’re sharing your work with the people who’ll appreciate it most – fellow crafters! Sure, our loved ones LOVE to receive a hand-crafted gift, made with them in mind, but can they really understand all the details that went into it? Can they share the pain of decreases gone awry, of loose ends too short to weave, of patterns misread, realized too late? Fellow social media #makers will feel not only your successes, but your #struggles, and the challenges overcome will make the finished products all the sweeter to those who really get it.
None of us got into crafting for the fame of it, but it’s certainly fun to get some recognition for the yarn-work we usually do quietly at home! With 165K followers @lionbrandyarn to date (31.6K for @lionbrandstudio), that’s certainly quite a few pairs of peepers on your projects. It can be fun to be amplified on that scale, especially to an audience comprised almost exclusively of fellow crafters. And we choose all kinds of crafters, not just professional bloggers with followerships of their own. If you’re using & loving & tagging #LionBrand, we’re noticing you!
Let’s flex our social media muscles, and use this crazy tool for what it does best – keeping us connected, sharing our mutual interests, & celebrating one another with gestures of appreciation, which make all the difference in the world! Check us out on social media, @LionBrandYarn (Instagram & Twitter) and for our Manhattan Studio: @LionBrandStudio (Instagram) & @lbystudio (Twitter), and follow for crafting fun.
If you’re savvy with social, tag us in your next post, and you just might see yourself in a repost someday soon.
