There is a yarn-crafter’s paradise in Manhattan, the Lion Brand Studio. Located at 34 West 15th Street between 5th & 6th Avenues, it is THE place for friendly service, a spectacular variety of yarn and a rotating gallery of awe-inspiring art. This month’s featured piece comes from talented Australian Textile artist, Prudence Mapstone. The work is entitled, “Barren to Bountiful: What a Difference The Rain Makes.” Ms. Mapstone’s work has been featured all over the world, in magazines and books. Her unique creation will remain on exhibit until April, so come to see it soon. Why soon? So you can return several times more to see it again! The colors, the texture – everything about it will have you wishing you could create something as fabulous. Perhaps some of you can, I cannot. I offer my thanks to Ms. Mapstone for her wonderful work and to Lion Brand for always getting it just right.
