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.

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.

Customer Reviews

The instructor for our learn to knit class was fantastic. I would highly recommend her. The young lady that helped us with the yarn and showed us around was also great. The lady that checked us in and rang us up however, was not the friendliest.
