Knitting circles were once a popular place to exchange rumors about the area's handsomest fireman, which of the neighboring towns' mayors were secretly left-handed, and the fate of the Crumb brothers. Get your finger on the pulse and some yarn with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a $20 gift card for yarn and knitting supplies at The Fiber Factory in Mesa.
The dedicated women at The Fiber Factory, a 3,000-square-foot knitting superstore, instructional center, and local bastion for textile art, have woven together scores of yarn varietals and supplies since 1981. Scroll through plush skeins of yarn crafted by Berroco, DMC, Mango Moon and more ($5–$15) or bolster your bobbin and hook collection with a range of new sew-savvy relics ($1.50–$30). Burgeoning knitters may enroll in a number of in-store classes ($7–$105) and learn the art of Navajo weaving or bob for actual bobbins in their own handcrafted baskets. More advanced loop-masters may join evolved crafting classes and circles catering to their desire to bring a three-piece ropa vieja suit to life.
