Knitting can be a helpful hobby in the winter when you need a scarf for extra warmth or a sturdy needle to chip your way out of a frozen cabin. Prepare for chilly months with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of yarns, needles, kits, and accessories at Yarns By Design in Oakmont.
Yarns By Design fills its shelves with a vast selection of knitting and crocheting supplies for thread sculptors of every experience level. The shop's inventory includes a variety of cocoknits patterns ($7.35), which guide amateur tailors through garment creation without weaving wrists into sailor's knots. Soft rainbows of Berroco yarns ($6.95–$29.95) weave together with the help of deft hands, and Blue Sky Alpacas yarns ($8.95–$22.95) follow Addi Turbo needles ($14.95–$179.95) to form supersoft accessories. Jul Designs pedestal buttons ($5.95–$7.95) can shape or tighten hats, blouses, and woolen straitjackets without stitching or buttonholes. Yarns By Design also hosts complimentary fiber-arts groups, open to the public, which meet three times a week.
Yarns By Design
An upscale fiber-arts boutique, Yarns By Design keeps its shelves stocked with high-quality yarns, patterns, and other supplies from all over the globe. Every month, visitors put those materials to work during a number of classes and clubs. Beginning crochet classes, for instance, cover basic techniques and stitches, and needle-felting classes teach students how to use felting needles to create 3D animals. Throughout the year, YBD also offers special workshops hosted by talented designers.
