Online Private Lessons NOW OPEN! 

And they're free through Saturday!

We have some good news: we've got online private lessons (mostly) figured out! We need volunteers to test this for us as we work out the last few bugs, so if you're down for a free online sit-down with Wendy (the only currently available teacher), please email her directly at She has limited slots available, so email her today.

In order to participate, you will have to have a phone, tablet, or computer with a webcam and microphone, and will have to have a gmail account. Then you'll get a call from Wendy (it may say "private number" so she'll email you to let you know what time to expect) and she'll help you get set up. You'll be able to speak face-to-face, but you'll also see her knitting or crochet from the crafter's eye view.

We're working on ways to open it up to non-gmail users, but so far, we're having technical difficulties. We hope soon to have other teachers available, too!

Be well, be safe, be kind!
-Caryn & the Yarnivore crew

The Tip Jar

Need something to listen to while you knit or crochet? Try a free audiobook from the San Antonio Public Library!
Better yet, try one that focuses on your favorite craft. Here are some lists of available free audiobook downloads from the SAPL from keyword searches on knitting, yarn, and crafting.

All classes and in-person private lessons are currently on hold, due to the San Antonio & Bexar County joint Stay Home/Work Safe order.

We continue to find ways to safely keep you inspired and supplied, like online ordering, shipping and curbside pickup. To keep up with our efforts and real time announcements, please follow us on social media:
