Project ACORN- Arm Knitting Class

Serendipity Fibers, 314 E 4th St., Huntingburg
Ages: 12 and older Cost: $25 Limit: 12
To register, RSVP at or contact Melissa at 812-684-8033.

Broaden your horizons and meet new friends in this exciting, hands-on class on historic Fourth Street in Huntingburg. Participants will learn how to knit on an accessible and entertaining scale. Using your arms and the yarn provided, you will learn how to cast on, knit, and bind off a cowl using the same techniques you would use with knitting needles—and you will have a completed project before you leave! This class will be a great intro to knitting and a fun evening for diverse ages and skill levels.

If you’ve never visited Serendipity Fibers, you’ll appreciate the warm and inviting nature of the historic space, complete with comfortable, relaxing sitting areas, and surrounded by an amazing collection of threads, yarns, handmade shawls, scarves, and throws. Opening "the yarn shop of [her] dreams" in July of 2014, Melissa states, "I'm blessed beyond words to have the support and love of those around me. I strive to ensure that every customer who walks through my doors feels like part of the family." Get-to-know-your-neighbor, community-building events like her Wine and Stitch Night offered every Thursday illustrate Melissa's vision. These events are filled with laughter and fun.
