Workshops (UPGRADED)

At Apple Yarns, we hope you come for the yarn and stay for the community. Our qualified instructors offer classes from beginner to advanced. Several times a week we host free community knitting circles in our gathering room.

People tell us they knit and crochet because it is relaxing and rewarding. They enjoy the progress they see with each stitch, and the satisfaction they feel with the finished project. Some people knit and crochet for themselves – making unique items no one else can buy. Others create for people they love.

Each person who knits or crochets from a pattern produces work as unique as they are. We come together to encourage, support, and inspire each other. We invite you to join us!

Whether you are just curious and interested to learn or experienced with advanced projects, the team at Apple Yarns welcomes you.
