It was great to hear Michaela tell one of my favorite stories again.
We had the great pleasure of hearing Jeffery tell two stories; one of his own creation and the other a tall tale.
The Lion Brand Studio seems to have every color yarn in the rainbow.
Storytellers were chosen from over 100 submissions on The Lion Brand website.
The stories evoked a great range of emotions from humor to heartbreak.

On Thursday night, The Lion Brand Studio in NYC was filled with creative crafters sharing their stories with an enthusiastic audience. It was an entertaining night filled with thought provoking stories ranging from side-splitting humor to heartbreaking sadness. We heard stories from Patty Lyons (studio manager for Lion Brand), as well as five storytellers chosen from over one hundred submissions on The Lion Brand website, and finally by two familiar faces here at CraftStylish.

I thought I knew what to expect from CraftStylish alums Michaela and Jeffery, but I was blown away by their storytelling skills. I was also impressed by the first time performers chosen from the Lion Brand website. Jill Braun (How it All Began), Rita Brasen (Bella’s Gift), Pat Myer (Stars for the Flag), Jeanne Sarosy (The Mad Hatter), and Susan White (Making it on the M7) told their stories with great skill and passion.

It was great to catch up with two good friends and a real treat to hear such inspiring crafty stories from everyone involved. Check out the Lion Brand website for more special events.
