Fees and Discount
Class fees do not include supplies unless indicated. 

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.

If Prairie Road Yarn needs to cancel a class for any reason (including weather) we will
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.
