knitting & crochet help
If your current project needs some fixing or you require some pattern assistance, come on in and our knowledgeable staff would be happy to help you - for free!
pattern & Yarn selection
Searching for your next perfect pattern? Grab one of our iPads, take a seat, and enjoy an inspiring search. Patterns can be easily printed in the shop on high-quality paper or downloaded to your Ravelry account. If you need suggestions, we'd be happy to help select one of our favorite projects from our pattern or book library. Once you have your next project in mind, our knowledgeable staff is happy to help with color selection or yarn substitutions.
We'd be happy to wind up to three hanks of yarn for you while you wait on our electronic ball winder; if you'd like, you can leave more behind and pick it up later. We'll wind your yarn even if you haven't purchased it in our shop - we just love to see what you're currently working even if it's not a yarn we're currently carrying in our store.
Looking for the perfect custom gift? Our talented artists can be commissioned at a rate of $20/hour plus the cost of materials. We've knit baby booties, crocheted custom hats, and worked up one-of-a-kind sweaters that are impossible to mass produce commercially.
PRIVATE EVENTS & CUSTOM CLASSES
Having trouble making it to one of our regularly scheduled classes? Looking to work on a specific skill or project? We offer private lessons for $25 per hour or can host a custom class for your group of friends for $15 per person. Make it a day out by visiting all that Downtown Oak Park has to offer. Our suggestion for a perfect combination? A knitting and spa day with your friends!
