Here's a peek of an new piece I installed for the first time today. It's called "Michael is this a joke?" and is based on a nightmare I had. I haven't had much time to step back and decide how I feel about the piece as a whole, so I'm only showing a snippet of the part I'm excited about so far. Maybe more soon. The speaker plays the sound of an idling diesel truck when the viewer is close enough to cast a shadow.
Art school is pretty fun :)
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. 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.
