Lion Brand Yarn Studio, A Handmade Cavalcade Sponsor

Window Display at Lion Brand Yarn Studio

Over the weekend, Etsy New York hosted it's annual Spring Handmade Cavalcade. This event could not have happened without the help of our wonderful sponsors, in particular Lion Brand Yarn Studio. Nestled near Union Square in Manhattan, Lion Brand Yarn Studio is well known for its fabulous tutorials, glorious yarns, fun and educational classes, and yes, of course, its window displays.
Filled to the brim with delectable yarns, knitting and crochet needles of every size, and magazines and books,  Lion Brand Yarn Studio is truly a refuge for yarn lovers. 
Lion Brand Yarn Studio is very excited to be introducing some amazing summer offers to patrons of the store and website. The following are just a few specials that might encourage your inner craftiness. To sign up, please check out their Classes & Workshops link on their website.

Summer Yarncrafting University is a program the Studio hosts every summer to help crafters learn a new skill or get advanced training in a yarncraft they already know. You can attend Knitting College or Crochet College; each of those “majors” includes two weeks of beginner lessons, a week of “Beyond the Basics” training, and all your materials are included! You can also attend Yarncrafting Graduate School, where for a flat fee, you can register for *any 5 single or double session knitting, crochet, or general yarncrafting workshops you’d like that take place between  June 1 – August 31. This is a savings of up to $200 over regularly priced workshops! 
* Valid only on one & two week courses. Not valid on Project Knitting and Crochet, Sweater School, or Master Classes.
Summer Skill Building Workshops are another great opportunity to brush up on your crafting this summer between June 1 – August 31; each one only lasts an hour and there’s a great variety of skills you can learn. Each individual session is only $20, but when you register for the 5 pack you get the 5th Skill Building Workshop for free! Topics include everything from pattern reading, gauge, cabling without a cable needle, joining new yarn, increases & decreases and so much more!
This summer will also see the return of Studio Heat Wave Savings. As the temperature rises, so do the savings! From June 1st - Aug 31st, if the predicted high temperature on for the Studio’s zip code (10011) is at opening:

  • over 90 degrees, you get 10% off all yarn purchases that day;
  • over 95 degrees, you get 15% off all yarn purchases that day;
  • over 100 degrees, you get 20% off all yarn purchases that day.
To get these special savings all you have to do is ask: "What's my Studio Heat Wave discount?" at the register.
A huge thanks to Lion Brand Yarn Studio from the Etsy New York team!
