Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking to the lovely ladies of the Soundview Knitting Guild in Trumbull, Connecticut. It was a very special evening for both the guild and myself as I got to present the LB Collection among other new yarns. These women exude so much enthusiasm and passion for their craft that I knew they would be the perfect group to show the LB Collection to. Since these yarns are only sold through our Studio, catalog, and website, not many people have an opportunity to touch and see these exquisite yarns firsthand. It was so wonderful to see them experience these yarns for the first time.
I also had the opportunity to speak to the group about our amazing Lion Brand Yarn Studio, and I was pleasantly surprise to find that three women had already traveled to New York City to visit the store. By the end of our meeting the ladies were discussing getting a bus and taking a group trip to check out the Studio.
The cherry on top of the cake for me was having four Blumenthals from different generations — Ruth, Irene, Rhoda, and Mark (not shown) — come to see my presentation and say hello. It is always fun to see relatives that you haven’t seen in ages. Here at Lion Brand, family is of the utmost importance so having them there made the evening that much more special.
