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%.


All are welcome to join these events anytime.

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!

Fourth Tuesday of every month, 5:30-7:30pm

Do you have a rigid heddle loom that you need to dust off and get warped? We hear you and are ready to help!  This "club" is a support group to help you warp that loom, encourage your creative side and get you weaving! As a courtesy to us and in the spirit of good manners, we ask that you work on projects with yarn you have purchased from our shop.

Third Sunday of the Month, 1-4 pm (note the time change!)

Join us for spinning and fiber experimentation. If you don't spin (yet...) but want to come along with friends who spin, you are welcome to knit, crochet, or weave at no charge. 

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. 



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!



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:  

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.


  • Several of our customers and staff are highly sensitive to fragrances so we ask that you please refrain from wearing fragrances to classes. 
  • During classes, please be courteous and silence your cell phones.
