Fees and Discount
Class fees do not include supplies unless indicated. Prairie Road Yarn offers a 10%

Plan on arriving in plenty of time before your first class session to purchase
supplies, especially if you need to have yarn wound. We encourage you to visit the shop
a few days before your first class to purchase supplies. For some classes supplies will be included.

Student cancellations must be made 48 prior to the first class session to receive a
refund or store credit. No refunds or makeup sessions are available for missed sessions
of multi-session classes.

notify registrants via phone or email. We will offer a refund if we're unable to reschedule
the class.


Knitting is a fun and useful skill, but we know that getting started can be daunting. Solo learning is an efficient way to learn (you can pack a lot into an hour!), and our teachers are eager to teach private lessons for those who prefer a one-on-one learning style.

$45 per one-hour session
$25 per half-hour session

Private lessons are available during shop hours, depending on instructor availability.

Call 605-271-1577 to schedule a session or to ask questions. We're happy to help you figure it out which lesson type is right for you.
