We are Vancity's Online Textile Hub!
Since 2008 Vancouver Yarn has been Vancouver BC's online textile resource. We don't have a physical location nor do we sell things, we're simply a kick-ass resource directing you to locals who do do those things: We offer detailed listings of all of the yarn shops in Vancouver and beyond, and our events page offers an updated calendar. Our list of crafting groups, and places to learn new textile techniques is always growing, as is our list of local knitwear designers who sell patterns and local yarn designers who dye yarn for sale. Our shop online page features online yarn and fabric shops which are based in Canada, many of which are in BC. And there's more, just look under the Around Town tab.
Vancouver is a DIY textile destination particularly in the fall when the Maiwa Symposium occurs, as well as the huge annual textile marketplace Knit City. The Vancouver area is also the home to popular hand-dyed yarn companies like Sweetgeorgia Yarns, Sweet Fiber Yarns and Raincity Knits, as well as celebrated knit designers like Jane Richmond, Shannon Cook and Silvia Bo Bilvia.
