Prairie Craft

“Why did she make things?
Well, she enjoyed it of course, but it also somehow helped her remember who she was and where she came from”
- Amy Ruben Flett

1. Knitting reduces stress - knitters find they can escape into the sanctuary of a quiet mind.

3. Knitting can help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

2. Knitting can help with focus and concentration more effectively.

4. Knitting encourages community - Today, knitting is more social than ever, and everyone seems to love it.

Have you always wanted to learn to knit but felt overwhelmed?
Rest assured, we can help…
Our favorite “teachers” are below (and they’re women-owned):

Wool and the Gang

Their mission is to inspire the next generation of makers through reinvention of the craft experience!

ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR WOOL – they make sure they create crafty spaces where everyone feels welcome.  That means making sure their patterns fit every size and shape, their customers see themselves reflected in their photography and their products are accessible for a range of abilities.

We Are Knitters

They’re always looking for new knitters – and believe an idea means nothing if it is not completed.  


Their kits include everything you need to create your project: the fibers, tools, and step by step instructions guiding you through all the processes.

Choose your technique and kit, customize your colors and start creating!

Purl Soho

A Yarn sanctuary for a nation of knitters – 

The heart of their business is and always has been a community of crafters. 

Inspired by traditional fiber arts, modern design, and nature’s creations, the real beat that keeps them going is their customers. That feeling of fulfillment that comes from making with your own two hands? They want that for you! From color advice to fiber recommendations, from video tutorials to one-on-one troubleshooting, they’re here for you every step of the way.

“I have officially gone from a red-haired ingénue wearing designer clothes, riding in limousines and letting people walk all over me to a gray-haired granny on a recliner, contentedly knitting while wearing socks, and putting up with zero BS.”

- Melissa, Back to the Prairie
