I live in Olathe KS(its right in the middle of that area)...There's a great one called Knit Wits on 135th and Riverview in Olathe, but I'm not sure if they offer classes. Their phone number is 913-780-5648. They are only open tuesday through saturday, but the ladies there are SUPER helpful! There is also one in Independence MO called Knit Craft, and they have a website www.knitcraft.com
I hope that helps you! If you need anything, please let me know!!!

There is also the Studio up near the plaza on 47th near state line. Also there is Yarn Shop and More (which I live within walking distance to. :O ) on 80th street and Metcalf, in old Overland Park.
There is also a knitting guild here. http://www.sunflowerknittersguild.org
I didn't know that there were other people here from KC (other than Caviar). We should have a GTG sometime!

Thnks SO much, YM....I think that may be the closest to her. I got her a GC for the "Beginning Knitting", "Purl It" and "How Do I?" classes, 2 hrs each! Looks like they have TONS of variety in their class times, and their website doesnt even TALK about what brands they carry because they are all focused on teaching and inspiration! COOL!
