I am thrilled to be the first stop on Jane Richmond's blog tour which includes a giveaway of her fantastic new book, Island. If you're not yet in the loop about this wonderful gem take a look at this post on Jane's blog, this video preview, as well as this interview about it on A Pagan Knitter's pod cast. Then come back here on the 8th when I will be reviewing the book, sharing some of my projects from it, and giving a copy of the book to one lucky winner. If you want a heads up about the giveaway join our mailing list for a reminder (as well as other fun updates and goodies).
See Jane's blog here for the full line-up of tour stops.
Happy New Year!
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.
