Our Knit City RECAp VIDEO
Vancouver & textiles
Vancouver British Columbia is a 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.
Additionally, Vancouver's Textile Art Department is one of the few places in North America that owns and operates a jacquard loom - and it's open for public use in East Van!
