So, a group of us enjoyed the BAKG event with VP Jack Blumenthal last night. There were a large group of ladies, all busy on their needles & hooks for nearly two hours. We watched two brief videos, had question & answer throughout the evening then enjoyed a “show & feel” of some of their yarns which were passed around the large group. He showed some new yarn that won’t be out until Spring and also showed us Martha Stewart’s new collection. He said she is very involved in the details of her yarn…you don’t say! Here are just a few pics.
We each received a neat goody bag of LBY swag: Large tote, catalog, a magnet, a skein of Vanna’s Glamour in Copper (soft!) 🙂
Jack Blumenthal also invited everyone to their Lion Brand Yarn Outlet in Carlstadt, NJ where we could get “50% off first quality yarns in bags of 3”. The BAKG mentioned a bus trip they will be taking at the end of March out to the LBY outlet for $30 pp…I will post as I learn more. It sounds like something some of us would want to go to.
