The fRESH fashion show was quite a success. Everything went smoothly and everyone had a lot of fun, especially me! As a student I felt so honored to be included among some very talented and sophisticated fashion designers; Fariba Mirzaie from Gabbeh, Rosalind Aylmer from By Hand and Lina Cuthan from Lina Cutham Designs. I am so greatfull to Fariba for all her hard work in organizing this event as well as for all who volunteered that day including the beautiful models.
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 as a single space to hold all the textile awesomeness Vancouver (and beyond) offers. 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.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just send your press release to us at
