Tempe Yarn & Fiber's certified instructor Bev guides hands from yarn to stitch in a three-hour learn-to-knit class. Bev leads classes of 3–10 novice knitters through the basics of the knitting craft, imparting know-how on casting on and binding off, knitting, purling, and untangling the world's largest ball of yarn. By the end of the class, newly inaugurated knitters will have honed the skills to master garter and stockinette patterns.

Today's Groupon does not include materials, so students may purchase or bring smooth, light-colored worsted-weight yarn; U.S. size 8 or 9 straight, wooden knitting needles; and scissors. Guests can peruse the knittery’s selection of sundry yarns to procure the ideal colors and materials for future projects, whether crafting chic fall scarves or fashionable keg koozies.

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 people at this store are the best. They have welcomed me and my coworkers into the wonderful world of knitting! Great experience and a ton of fun to just be in the store. 5 stars on all counts
Russell S. · January 8, 2017
I took the beginning knitting class and was extremely impressed. The women who work there are very helpful and patient. The instructor did a fantastic job of explaining all of the knitting basics and taught enough to get started on small projects, but was careful not to overwhelm the students. It was super fun and I am excited to move on to more challenging classes once I master the basics.
