Are you familiar with The Craft Yarn council? They call themselves “the yarn industry’s one-stop resource”. And I have to agree. What a wealth of information they are! They are working with Michaels Arts & Crafts Stores to offer knit and crochet classes. They call it the discover program. You can learn to knit or crochet (or both) at your local Michaels. The classes will be taught by instructors who are graduates or students of the council’s certified instructors program.
My local store has the classes at 25.00 for a 2 hour session. Pretty reasonable right? If you want to learn to knit or crochet this would be a great place to start. Take the kiddies too!
