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 Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get two beginning knitting classes with provided supplies (a $50 value).
- For $15, you get $30 worth of yarn.
Beginning knitting classes take place on October 22 and 29 and on February 11 and 18, though more classes may be added. Students may choose any two of the four dates and do not have to attend consecutive classes.
With an expansive stock of yarn, notions, and instructional classes, Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe's experienced staff guides needle wielders of all abilities through the completion of handmade creations. Fledgling fiber artists can master foundational skills during two 90-minute beginners classes. As students create a small pouch that can fit coins, cell phones, or a smaller pouch, they learn foundational skills such as knitting, purling, and casting on stitches.
Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe's diverse yarn selection supplies crafters with fiber that comes in an array of materials and weights. Wrap needles around the multitonal, wool Trekking Hand Art yarn or the ultrasoft baby alpaca Grande yarn ($14/skein), which sports a heavier weight that's great for a hand-crafted pair of adult-size footie pajamas.
