Prime Publishing Joins Craft Yarn Council to Celebrate I Love Yarn Day

October 30 , 2018

Northbrook, IL – Prime Publishing LLC joined the Craft Yarn Council to celebrate the eighth annual I Love Yarn Day on October 13, 2018. I Love Yarn Day, the second Saturday in October, is a day for yarn enthusiasts to share what they love about yarn crafting. The day engaged crocheters, knitters, and general crafters around the world to share why they love to craft with yarn.

Prime Publishing’s I Love Yarn Day campaign featured a collection of easy-to-make Christmas crafts that required little to no knitting or crochet skills whatsoever. These designs were created by our in-house team of crafting experts with the general crafter in mind to encourage using yarn in their everyday crafting projects. Projects included including a Yarn Wrapped Tabletop Tree and a 5-Minute Peppermint Wreath Ornament, which was also demonstrated during a special FaveCrafts Facebook Live event.

“I Love Yarn Day is a chance for yarn crafters to reflect on what their craft means to them and share it with others,” said Jenny Bessonette, executive director of the Craft Yarn Council. “Whether you learned when you were five or 85, these are activities that anyone can learn and enjoy.”

Yarn crafts are not only meaningful and fun, but they provide numerous health benefits too. Studies have shown that knitting and crochet can help reduce stress and provide a sense of pride and accomplishment. The crafts can even help with pain management.

“A survey conducted by the council in 2018 confirms the numerous health benefits of yarn crafts like knitting and crocheting,” Bessonette said. “We invite all of our followers to participate by posting and talking about how yarn has affected their lives.”
