Martha Stewart Living: Lion Brand: Yarn with a Modern Twist (January 2010)

Walking through the doors of the Lion Brand Yarn Studio, the flagship store of the 131-year-old yarn purveyor, one feels a bit like Dorothy arriving in the land of Oz. Outside is a gray stretch of downtown New York City, but this room is all color and warmth, with a brilliant patchwork of yarns showcased in clear, backlit cubbies.

After opening in November 2008, the studio quickly became a global destination for yarn crafters. For the first time, the company’s sought-after collections–sold through mom-and-pop shops and large craft retailers–were available in one place. This is far from your ordinary yarn store, and the message is delivered in a hundred subtle ways, from the elaborate window displays to the computer workstations that dispense more than 2,800 free patterns.
