My general absence on the web these days is mostly due to my new found love for a new routine : 1) turn on computer 2) check email 3) turn off computer. Save for the occasional skim of my Google Reader and some internet TV here and there I'm loving spending less time on the web. With that said, there are some lovely installations that have stood out on my reader that I want to share.
This is my favourite! A massive steel sculpture of a desktop icon in New Zealand. Stunning. Via dudecraft
An interactive cloud installation made of thousands of light bulbs and pull strings. Via Colossal
AND this awesome musical swing set in Montreal! I ride by this installation all the time, it's rarely unoccupied. Via Colossal
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.
