I went in without knowing a thing about knitting. The staff were helpful and courteous. The instructor was obviously very experienced in teaching and loves knitting. I got lots of help and learned how to make several stitches. This was a fun learning experience and I plan to take another class after I practice with my new yarn. Also the shop is full of beautiful knitted items and a very nice selection of yarn.

Way better experience than I expected! My 13 year old daughter and I had some great quality time together and she even asked if we could do it again sometime. The teacher was patient and positive!

What You'll Get


Knitting was invented to turn the tumbling balls of yarn that littered the badlands habitat of early man into a soft, warm blanket for man's first pet rock. Create something cozy with help from today's deal: for $17, you get a three-hour beginner's knitting workshop at Tempe Yarn & Fiber on East University Dr. in Tempe (a $35 value). Choose one session from the following days:

  • Tuesdays, 5:00 p.m.
  • Wednesdays, 5:00 p.m.
  • Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. or 5:00 p.m.
  • Second and fourth Saturdays of the month, 3:00 p.m.

This family-owned-and-operated yarn boutique has been teaching the finer points of the woven 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 process, 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 to start on, or can arrive early to peruse and purchase some from the shop's vast selection of unique and locally-made accessories and hand-spun yarns. Workshops are capped at 10 participants so that each individual receives the utmost attention embarking on their first scarves, dish cloths or knit bikinis.
