Classes are being developed weekly so stop by the shop and pick up a flier or provide the shop your e-mail address and we will keep you up with the latest classes and events being offered. If there is a class you would like to take but don't see it on the schedule, let me know and I'll try to offer it. Thank you for supporting this shop! As many of you have said, "it's about time Topeka had a yarn shop!"


Classes in knitting, crochet, weaving, felting, tatting, jewelry making and embroidery are being scheduled. Most classes will vary from 1 - 5 or more sessions once a week. Class fees may be paid in person or by phone. Supplies for all classes must be purchased at Yak 'n Yarn.


Open stitch sessions are always free and always fun. These sessions are scheduled regularly to allow individuals to come together to share their love of fiber arts. Participants are invited to bring the project of their choosing and meet other fiber artists for two hours of creative fun.
