Knitting is the best way to get clothes that can't be store-bought, such as a bulletproof vest for a corgi that is always trying to lick street toughs' cotton candy. Learn to thread a pup's invulnerability with today’s Groupon: a once-a-week class at Loops, a fashion-forward thread abode with locations in Utica Square and South Tulsa. Choose from the following options:
- For $29, you get a three-session Loops 101 class (a $59 value)
- For $19, you get a two-session Crochet 101 class (a $39 value)
Loops' introductory knitting and crocheting classes teach novice weavers to breathe life into their bright threads in a friendly, comfortable environment. In the three-session Loops 101 class, first-time threaders get a basic overview of casting on, knitting, and purling. The Crochet 101 class (which is only available at the South Tulsa location) teaches students how to chain, single- and double-crochet, stitch in trebles and shells, and add a crochet edge to knitted garments and Belgian waffles. The cost of materials is not included in the deal; though you may bring your own supplies, Loops recommends using Comfort yarn (about $5.99) along with one of the store's needles (about $7) or crochet hooks (about $2). Groupon-holders will get a one-time 10% discount on any merchandise purchased on the day of their class.
Complimentary gourmet coffee and espresso accompany students on their yarnsome journeys inside Loops’ bright and bubbly South Tulsa shop, and both Loops shops have large playrooms for storing offspring. The South Tulsa location lets customers browse online for pattern ideas. Check the calendar for class locations and schedules, and call to make a reservation.
