Happy New Year! I wish you and yours a joyful and inspiring new year! This year my resolution is to spend less time on the web and more time reading and making. Here are some things people in Van are doing that is inspiring to me.
This week American Tapestry Alliance's Tapestry Unlimited Blog Tour that started on VY's blog last week continues with Rebecca Mezoff showing us how to blend colour using hatching. It's a super informative tutorial with two excellent videos. This tour is really giving you some solid tapestry weaving skills. Check it out and don't forget to enter to win some awesome prizes from American Tapestry Alliance.
Above are Sammy and I outside Grand Central Station in NYC last week. We love it here but can't wait to come home to BC in the summer of 2016 after being away for six years!

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
janna (at) vancouveryarn.com and specify that you'd like to see it on our blog.
