New Kids Club Page on the Site

We’ve added a new page on our website with information about the Harmony Knit and Crochet Kids Club! If you look in the upper right hand corner of your screen, you should see a “Kids Club” tab that will take you to a page with info about our fun knit and crochet club for kids. Our purpose in creating the Kids Club was to create a space where motivated kids who wanted encouragement to start and finish crochet and knit projects could come and socialize with other kids doing the same thing.

In Honor Of Our Glorious Grandmas

In honor of all our glorious grandmas, great aunts, and grand mentors – why not learn a new skill? Or take out and dust off a skill that has lain hidden under all the other important things that demand our attention and time? Skills that you probably learned at their knees? Obviously, there are times and seasons for all things. Yet, because necessity does not demand it, we are allowing the time honored skills of our ancestor women to slip from prominence to oblivion.

 Skills that elevate and beautify our surroundings, teach us empathy and patience, and allow us productive meditation.

Skills that allow for creative expression and artistic license.

Skills that demanded time together, side by side, in order to teach a beautiful tradition. But that are no longer being passed down from mothers to children.

 Skills like dress-making & quilting, crochet & knitting, embroidery, penmanship and calligraphy, gardening, baking and cooking, sketching & painting, letter writing and journal keeping.

In honor of our grandmas, this Mother’s Day, why not resolve to learn yourself or teach these skills to your sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, students, or friends? These skills are worth preserving.

Show us how you and your children are preserving these skills on Instagram (@harmonyprovo and @darlybird) and Twitter

Winter Craft Projects

The hustle, bustle, and charm of the Holiday Season is over, yet we are still deeply entrenched in the cold winter. Sign up for a crochet or knitting class to help you start and finish a project that will make the time spent indoors extra enjoyable. If you have even the slightest desire to take one of our classes, you should sign up quickly!

(Very sad side note – if the minimum number of students do not sign up for a class, it could be cancelled! Gather your friends and family and come learn something new!)

We have several classes that will get you started and keep you working on a great winter craft project…

Need to learn the basics of crochet or knitting? Then choose a one session, very reasonably priced, beginning class. Our knowledgeable instructors will get you started on a skill that will continue to pay you back rewards for the rest of your life!

If you have the basics of knitting under you belt and would love to use up all the bits and pieces left-over in your yarn stash AND learn to make the most adorable knitted toys, then sign up for our Simple Knitted Toys class! The little bunny, chick, and lamb knit up fast and are perfect for the Easter Springtime season. Everyone who comes into the store can’t help but pick them up and “Ooh” and “Aah” over them! Children and grandchildren alike will be delighted with these little toys.

Have you already taken the Beginning Crochet class or know the crochet basics, but want a refresher course? Do you struggle to read crochet patterns or diagrams? Would you like to learn how to change colors in your projects? Do you want some tips and tricks for joining crochet motifs together as you go along, so that the seaming up at the end of the project is not such a chore? Are you as in-love with Granny Squares as we are?? This class will cover all these things and more as you learn the ins and out of the ever popular Granny Square! Even if you’re not interested in the Granny Square, what you’ll learn in this one session class will give you the confidence to tackle other crochet projects.

Granny Squares

Sat. February 22, 3-5 p.m.
$15                                      Allison Baker

Would you like to move your knitting to the next level? Ready to learn how to knit something other than a scarf? Then come learn how to knit your own sweater! Choose to knit a child or adult sized cardigan with easy top down construction. You’ll be so pleased to learn the skills needed to finish this project after only two sessions of instruction!

Knit Your First Sweater

Friday, March 14 & 21, 4-5:30 p.m.
