Your response to the Craft Yarn Council and Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store’s Learn to Knit program was overwhelming and unfortunately the supply of 10,000 free student kits has run out.
We also invite you to visit our TEACH site, which is rich in content to assist you in organizing crocheting or knitting classes. There are interviews with teachers who have run successful programs at all grade levels and in after-school programs, along with links to how to’s and FAQs, additional project ideas and even helpful Spanish translations for common knitting terms and links to Spanish- and French-language patterns. See below for a list of topics.
Thank you for your interest.
