What a day it was! It took Danny and I several hours to get this loom built but we did it, and with only one trip to the hardware store for a couple of nuts and some doweling. I am as giddy as a little girl on Christmas morning....can't wait to warp up this weekend!
The pictures above progress from a pile of wood on the floor to a built loom and a happy Janna!
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.
