Now, students have the unique opportunity to expand their skill set with Lion Brand's time-tested techniques, and create varieties of stylish sweaters, classic cables and more, in three new online classes powered by Craftsy, the preeminent online destination for passionate makers to learn, create, and share.
"Over the past 135 years, Lion Brand Yarn Company, a family-owned and operated business, has inspired millions of knitters and crocheters with beautiful, one-of-a-kind patterns and instruction on essential techniques," said John Levisay, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Craftsy.
"Now, together, we're combining the creativity and originality of the Lion Brand yarns and patterns with the magic of Craftsy's online education experience."
With the expertise of two talented instructors, Patty Lyons, who helped launch the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in New York City, and Lion Brand designer Amy Ross, Craftsy and Lion Brand Yarn Company have created three classes for enthusiasts and experienced knitters alike.
"We're thrilled to be collaborating with Craftsy to combine their expertise in online education with Lion Brand's high quality accessible yarns and designer patterns," said VP of Marketing Ilana Rabinowitz at Lion Brand Yarn Company.
"Now, knitters everywhere have the opportunity to break out of their comfort zone and build new skills in a low-risk way by going online to learn."
This relationship is an exciting expansion for Craftsy, which currently offers more than 45 knitting classes covering fundamentals, intermediate and advanced techniques, inspiring projects, pattern design, and business basics.
As unique offerings in Craftsy's catalog, these exclusive Lion Brand classes are designed to provide a bridge for the casual knitter, from the tried and true to more complex projects, helping them develop transferrable techniques for hundreds of possibilities.
The three new Lion Brand Yarn Company classes launching on Craftsy are:
