I had a realization just now as I was tweeting about the holiday market map I made yesterday - I'm a compulsive sharer, especially when it comes to textile related things. Vancouver Yarn is a prime example; when I made the first page full of yarn shops I couldn't stop there. I remember it was a good two months of designing and tweaking the site every day after work. I was so excited about sharing all this info with you all, and totally engrossed in making it a the best that it could be (with my limited web designing knowledge). Yesterday when I thought of the idea to make holiday market map and dropped everything to do it there and then, I had a little flashback of that initial excitement I had for Vancouver Yarn. I still love it, I'm just not obsessed anymore :)
Here's the map. Enjoy!
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn. I am also a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I founded Vancouver Yarn in 2008. In 2010 I moved away from BC and was (a bit) absent here until I returned in 2016. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events and other local artists and crafters.
