Before knitting, absurdly large needles were used as yarn-kebob holders and squirrel stilts. Stitch yourself a new hobby with today's Groupon: for $37, you get one two-session group class and materials at Chix with Stix in Forest Park. Chix with Stix furnishes needle-wielding stitch mavens with everything they need to craft fully fuzzy projects. In two 90-minute sessions taught by knowledgeable, friendly staff members ($30 each), amateur craftspeople will learn fundamentals such as casting on, the knit stitch, the purl stitch, casting off, and casting a feature film. With plenty of personal attention in the eight-person classes, students will knit their own neck-warming scarf using the included project materials ($15). Check out the calendar, and in no time you'll be knitting your own seat belts and crocheting your own chopsticks.
Yelpers give Chix with Stix an average of 4.5 stars:
- The staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Each of the "Chix" is well versed (in knitting and many in crochet), but won't hesitate to point you in the direction of an expert to make sure you get all the help you need, whether it be in picking out a new yarn, calculating gauge or figuring out that new technique you haven't quite mastered. – Jillian C.
- Seriously...if I were a carbonated beverage..I would have exploded. There is no other way to express the glee and excitement that I felt once I stepped foot into the Chix With Stix store. – Amaliya L.
