This community-oriented yarn shop has been teaching the finer points of the fiber arts to wool wranglers of all skill levels since 2005. This three-hour starter workshop is ideal for new knitters and those who'd like a refresher course on the knitting basics, including cast-ons, knit stitches, bind-offs, and the wrist-contorting Lambada. Potential purlers should bring along a set of size-8, single-point needles and a skein of worsted-weight yarn on which to start, or can arrive early to peruse and purchase some from the shop's vast selection of inimitable and locally-made accessories and hand-spun yarns. Workshops are capped at 10 participants so that individuals receive the utmost attention embarking on their first scarves, dishcloths, or knit bikinis.

Arizona Yarn & Fiber

The artisans at Arizona Yarn & Fiber cultivate a pair of educational atmospheres where creativity flourishes amid inventories of yarns, fibers, and equipment. Largely stocked by local suppliers, the two studios house classrooms where pupils learn to knit, crochet, spin, weave, and dye fibers. Instructors well versed in the fiber arts bring in classes that teach skills such as beginning knitting, gradually progressing to more complicated maneuvers such as patching up a hot air balloon in motion. Teachers also allow students to set their own pace during project-help sessions, offering pointers as needed.

Had a great time. Learned the basics, enough to start a project on my own. Robin was a great teacher.

The instructor was very patient and a good teacher.
Debby F. · October 29, 2016
I took a learn to knit class at Tempe Yarn & Fiber and it was wonderful. Our instructor, Robin was very thorough, but most importantly she was extremely patient with all of us. Robin truly wants you to be successful. If you think a three hour class sounds long, it is not. I never had three hours go by so quickly. If you are thinking about learning to knit, I highly recommend this class.
