Sifu Design Studio & Fine Yarns celebrates the fiber arts through convivial courses, welcoming workshops, and dedicated display space for class-culled creations. Weekly three-hour beginners classes run for four to five weeks and include the materials for fiber fashioners' first projects. Knitters learn basic techniques through the construction of a scarf and hat, and crocheters study stitch making and pattern perusal. Up-and-coming embroidery experts brush up on image transfer and creation, learning how embroidery can enhance anything from cute messages on pillows to personalizing a foam finger.

Over three hours on Saturday afternoons, Sifu Design Studio & Fine Yarns' intrepid instructors conduct project-driven workshops. Like sailors, friendship-bracelet-workshop participants show appreciation for companionship through intricate knot tying, or daydreamers can learn to capture their subconscious thoughts and skim off the embarrassing parts during a dreamcatcher workshop. The eco-crafts workshop imparts wisdom about the possibilities of resurrected T-shirts and preserved silly string.

Sifu Design Studio & Fine Yarns' North Side enclave boasts soft pink walls, shelves brimming with yarn and thread, and display space for fabric-fabricated creations. Though not included in today's deal, the resale section gives fiber artists a chance to trade new or like-new materials and patterns for new products, minimizing carbon consciences.

Sifu Design Studio & Fine Yarns

When you walk into Sifu Design Studio & Fine Yarns, you won’t find a quiet room simply housing yarns and fabrics. Instead, you’ll walk into a communal space where crafters of all ilks socialize during themed knitting circles, browse handmade crafts from local designers, or further their skills in instructional classes. Something is going on nearly every day of the week. Weeknight classes allow students to learn how to make shawls, mittens, and socks while sipping on BYOB wine, and during the studio’s sci-fi night, the staff screen a movie while guests work on their latest projects. Crafters also can refurnish their stocks of supplies and yarn from the expansive selection, which features a variety of hard-to-find specialty tools. The shop also has a range of vintage products, garnered through its trade-in program, which offers store credit for clients who trade in unused yarn, old tools, and vintage knitting patterns such as booties for claw-foot tubs.

Customer Reviews

This was the best groupon I ver purchased. I just started my knitting class and in love with the place. I have already decided I will take more classes, even though they will be full price because I love the business so much!

I don't think I would have known anything about this business except through groupon, and I'm glad I found it. Even though I live somewhat far away, the staff is wonderful and incredibly helpful and I would absolutely to make the trip to go back, and possibly take another class.
