PRIVATE LESSONS
Knitting and Crocheting

$20 for the first hour; $​​18 for subsequent hours; $12 for subsequent half-hours

Interested in learning the basics one-on-one or with a friend? Brushing up on rusty techniques? Stuck on a particular project? Call and schedule your private lesson so we can give you the personal attention you need! Materials purchased for private lessons are also discounted 10%.

************************************************************************************************

ON-GOING ACTIVITIES & GROUPS -- FREE
All are welcome to join these events anytime.

SOCKS-AND-SOCK-YARN CLUB

First Wednesday of every month, 5:30-7:30pm
Join us for two hours of nothing but socks and/or anything knitted or crocheted with sock-weight yarn, and get 15% off all regular-priced sock yarn!  Sock Club is not a beginning sock class, but questions are welcome!

TUESDAY LUNCH BUNCH

Every Tuesday, 11:30am-1:30pm (adults only, please)
Lunch Bunch -- because you need an excuse to leave work for lunch and craft with friends for a while!  If driving at night isn't your thing, join us during the day for crafting and lunch.  Sometimes we also have charity projects you can work on. 

 

THURSDAY NIGHT KNIT & CROCHET

Every Thursday, 6-8pm (adults only, please)
Knit Night is FREE and open to all fiber addicts.  If you are having problems with a project, need help with a technique or a bit of reassurance as you learn a new skill, this is the perfect forum.   Our staff and teachers are always available and eager to help.  If you don’t need any guidance, Knit Night is a great way to meet people in the fiber community, be inspired by what others are doing, get away from the family for a few hours, and enjoy some uninterrupted knitting/crocheting. 

As a courtesy to us and in the spirit of good manners, we ask that at Lunch Bunch and Knit & Crochet Night, you work on projects with yarn you have purchased from our shop.  Some shops make this a requirement but we aren't that heavy-handed.  We do like to see yarn you have purchased from yarn shops on your travels, but box store and mail order yarn --- not so much!

 ************************************************************************************************

PRIVATE INSTRUCTION

Sometimes group lessons don’t fit the busy lives of our customers and no one should miss out on the fun.  Getting personalized, individual attention means no down time so you will be sailing along very quickly.  We offer private lessons for beginning knitting and crochet, socks and just about any project or technique you can think of.  Fee:  $20 first hour for beginning knit or crochet; $18 subsequent hours, and $12 for 1/2 hour.  10% discount on materials required for classes.  Call us for more information: 812-330-5394, or email us: inayarnbasket@gmail.com.  

BUILD A CLASS
We love parties — why not let us be your entertainment? Birthdays, holidays or Friends' Night Out, we specialize in youth to adults and will build a class for whatever your group would like to do — crochet, knit, needle-felt or wet-felt.  Some classes will include materials, so the cost will vary.  Call or email for more information.
