What You'll Get


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 to Friends & Fiberworks. Choose between the following options:

  • For $15, you get $30 worth of yarn.
  • For $30, you get $60 worth of class fees for winter retreat classes, held January 13–15. This option may be used for multiple people or multiple class sessions, but cannot be used toward materials fees, which vary by class.<p>

Led by a cadre of talented teachers with extensive backgrounds in diverse forms of fabric-handling, Friends & Fiberworks outfits clients with all the skills and equipment needed for fashioning art for the home and body. Spiders-in-training wander into a world draped with skeins of cozy threads where sample projects pop against black display backgrounds and crafters repose with their work in cushy armchairs. Among shelves stuffed with pillowy packages, bulky merino wool strands of Malabrigo Rasta yarn ($22) come slightly felted to form a soft defense against winter chills and sneaky ticklers.

The annual winter retreat gathers together experts from a wide range of fiber arts, including knitting, feltwork, and loom weaving. Amid the colorful company of like-minded crafters, students pick up the basics of yarnmanship in a two-hour beginners’ knitting course ($30/person) or spookily accurate voodoo doll construction in a needle-felted snowman course ($30/person), or move on to a session covering making mitred cuffs ($60/person). Apprentice artisans are welcome to attend alone or bring along a friend or extraordinarily generous sheep.

About Friends & Fiberworks


Thousands of sheep have Friends & Fiberworks to thank for their cool, breezy summers. The shop's 4,000-square-foot show room is packed with the dyed, spun remnants of their winter coats, inspiring shoppers to fashion art for the home and body. Wooden display panels show off sample projects above shelves stuffed with skeins of all kinds, including yarns spun by local fiber artists such as Rowan and Debbie Bliss. Amid the rainbow of pillowy packages, cushy armchairs await practicing knitters and spiders-in-training.

More than just a supply shop, Friends & Fiberworks cultivates its own flock of knitters and craftspeople through ongoing classes and twice-yearly retreats. The talented instructors delve into everything from weaving on a loom to spinning wool into yarn and straw into gold, eliminating the need to wager firstborn children away to nameless imps.
