It's my first time being published as a designer and I'm super excited, especially because the book is awesome! I'm honoured to be among the designers in Knit & Wrap. It is a pattern book full of fabulous capelets, cowls and collars; designs that are destined to be on your to-knit-for-Christmas list. Yes, I said it. Hasn't anyone else began their Christmas gift knitting?
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
