Congratulations to Stephanie Hancock, winner of our logo contest.
I love the idea of having the 'VY' in the yarn since I've been calling Vancouver Yarn by its initials for some time now. I also really like that it is a pretty pink ball of yarn. It's a great design and I'm so glad to have it as our logo. Thanks Stephanie!
Here is a picture of Stephanie at Baaad Anna's receiving her yarn winnings, ten balls of Colossal Cozy yarn, which is hand-spun here in Vancouver and hand-dyed by me.
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
