Lily Chin was the first American knitwear designer to create a line of fashion yarns under her own name, The Lily Chin Signature Collection, launched in 2005 with CNS Yarns.
She has created couture crochet for the New York Fashion Week runway collections of designers Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang, Diane von Furstenberg, and Isaac Mizrahi, and her work has been on the backs of celebrities and super models, from Racquel Welch and Vanna White to Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell.
In the 1990s she was named a “Master Knitter” by Vogue Knitting International. In her career she has designed some outrageous garments, including an Absolut Vodka cozy for an international marketing campaign, a string bikini for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, and ready-to-wear for the Gap. She is regularly cited in media across the U.S., including Time, The New York Times, USA Today, The Washington Post, and New York Daily News, for redefining the image of today’s knitter and crocheter.
Most recently, she’s hosted the high-fashion knitting show, Stitchcraft, on the Oh! Oxygen network. Her other television credits include the Late Show with David Letterman, Martha, CBS Morning News, ESPN’s Cold Pizza, Fox & Friends, The Jane Pauley Show, CNN, HGTV, and more.
Lily Chin is the official spokesperson for the Orphan Foundation of America Red Scarf Project, which collect handmade scarves to send warmth and encouragement to America’s college-bound foster youth each year in Valentine’s Day Care Packages. Lily Chin has lived in New York City nearly all her life and has been involved in some aspect of the fashion industry since age 13.
SUNDAY SUPPER CLUB
We normally are not opened on Sundays during the winter months. But, we have had a number of knitters express an interest in shopping, knitting, eating on Sundays when ball game enthusiasts take over the television remote. So, we have planned Sunday Supper Club between 2 and 4 PM on the following dates (the first Sunday of the month this winter): We will meet on Sunday, January 5th, February 2nd, March 2nd.
The shop will be open from noon until 4 on Sunday Supper Club Sundays.
- We will provide beverages, water, soda pop, coffee, cocoa, etc. and paper products including plates, napkins, and plastic ware.
- We ask that everyone brings a dish to pass that serves 6—8 people. You may bring salad, bread, casserole, dessert, vegetables, fruit. We will make a meal from whatever your favorites may be. Please bring any necessary serving utensils and a “to go” container in case there are leftovers to take home. We also ask that all food and dishes be taken home after supper.
- Feel free to bring a project to work on after our meal.
- No reservations are required.
