Lion Brand Yarn to sponsor 1st World Maker Faire

Sep '10
Lion Brand Yarn Company is sponsoring the first World Maker Faire New York September 25 & 26th 2010, which will take place at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. In addition to a busy schedule of free classes at the Lion Brand booth, the company is sponsoring two “makers”: Robyn Love, who is “yarn bombing” one of the rocket ships at the museum and Amy Caterina, who created a car cover made entirely of Fun Fur yarn.

At the Lion Brand booth, attendees will be offered free knit and crochet lessons, as well as machine knitting and weaving demonstrations. Visitors will have an opportunity to create make and take projects that include friendship bracelets, bangles and tassels. The Lion Brand booth will include a display of a yarn crafted cityscape with the Coney Island Cyclone and Wonder Wheel, as well as landmark buildings such as the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building.

At the rocket ship a trail of over 300 knit and crocheted squares will be attached to flow from the rocket. This interactive exhibit will allow visitors to write notes and pin them to the yarn crafted trail of squares with their personal “message to the universe.” After the event, the squares will be recreated into afghans to donate to the Warm Up America! Foundation.

Lion Brand Yarn Company is a 132-year-old entity and is America's oldest hand knitting yarn brand. Founded in 1878, the company began operation in New York and has been a leading supplier of quality hand-knitting and crochet yarns ever since. Throughout its history, Lion Brand Yarn has been at the forefront of yarn trends while consistently providing its customers with the highest quality product, service and inspiration.
