Minnesota Knitters Guide to Yarn Shops (near the Twin Cities & around)
 
I was hoping this would be a thread which would provide the following information:

1. Identify yarn shops in the various Twin Cities communities (MN) (including a link);

2. Whether the shops hold classes / and the types of classes;

3. Let fellow knitters know what you LOVE about where you shop;

4. Whether these shops have knitting circles – where knitters gather to knit, chat and share ideas – and if there are certain nights / fees;

5. Where the best coupons are;

6. Which location has shopping incentives – i.e., punch cards.

I am going to give this place a try soon - Yarn Garage in Rosemount
There are knitting get togethers - the owner said the following about each night:
Monday night class is the most calm and a lot of learning goes on.
Wed. is a fun social night and a large group.
Friday is Pizza and knitting so fun but not as full.
