Skill Building Spots

Here are some of my most favorite go-to sites to learn either a new skill or improve on something I’ve already tried:

American Crochet Association *NEW*

Craftsy

The Crochet Crowd – FREE!

Creativebug

Crochet School – FREE!

My First Series by Marly Bird

In addition to online resources, you should also check out your local yarn store. Most local yarn stores offer group or private lessons in a variety of yarn crafts (knitting, crochet, weaving, spinning, etc). My favorite yarn stores in the San Antonio, TX, area include:

Yarnivore

Inskein Yarns

In Austin, TX:

Hill Country Weavers

In Comfort, TX:

The Tinsmith’s Wife

Ask the staff for a class list! I love online craft courses and tutorial videos, but sometimes we need the in-person instruction and personalized feedback from an expert. I have taken classes at Yarnivore with Wendy and she is A-mazing! She has helped me become a confident knitter and I’m eternally grateful for that.
