Great Balls of Yarn - Multiple Locations: $15 for a Beginning Knitting or Crocheting Class at Great Balls of Yarn ($35 Value)

Like stroking a kitten, knitting surrounds hands in softness, creates meditative calm through repetition, and is a required skill for aspiring supervillains. Take the first step toward infamy with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a one-hour beginning knitting or crocheting class at Great Balls of Yarn (a $35 value). This Groupon is valid at Great Balls of Yarn locations in Aventura, Boca Raton, Stuart, and West Palm Beach.

Great Balls of Yarn's staff equips fingers with more than 20,000 balls of sumptuous fiber, special tools, and a medley of classes elucidating the creation of soft woven goods. Each store's schedule edifies wishful stitchers with one-hour introductory classes to which students tote their own supplies or doomed sock puppets. Beginning knitters train their hands in the process of casting on and discover the dual nature of the knit stitch, and beginning crochet classes illustrate how a foundation chain stitch can grow into doilies, hats, and blankets with the help of a single crochet knot.

Piles of cashmere, silk, and specialty hand-dyed yarn by brands including Berroco and Gedifra let patrons romp through colorful fuzz without inciting the Care Bears to riot. The fiber-rich storefront also offers customers complimentary knitting patterns of original designs, available for download or sharing.

Great Balls of Yarn

In Great Balls of Yarn's four boutiques, knitters and crocheters of all experience levels browse more than 20,000 balls of yarn, including luxurious fibers from Trendsetter and Noro as well as hand-dyes from Prism and Malabrigo. Talented fiber artists guide knitters and crocheters as they transform vibrant fibers into wearable works of art during beginner through advanced classes. Project-specific sessions focus on creating table runners, borders for blankets, and baby booties to keep wee ones' feet warm and steps soundless during midnight refrigerator raids. Amid the shops' soft lighting, tapestries intermix with shelves of color-coded worsted and washable yarns alongside cashmeres and silks. Great Balls of Yarn also arms textile technicians with needles, notions, and books full of inspiration and yarn-charming incantations.
