88 Stitches is holding their final closeout sale before they close their doors for good. Losing Sue and her wonderful shop is a great loss for the community. Sue has always been a huge supporter of local designers and brands. In fact, she was the first person to buy my fluorescent chunky yarn and cowl pattern at the Surrey Pic-Knit in 2009, and was also the first person to invite me to have an Everlea Yarn trunk show at her shop. Her presence will be greatly missed from the Walnut Grove complex, but I know we will continue to see her participating in the knitting community, so it's not goodbye.
Support Sue by checking out her closeout sale at 88 Stitches in Walnut Grove, Langley. Everything in the shop is currently 40%-50% off!

Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the proprietor and natural dyer at Everlea Yarn, and the tapestry instructor at The School of SweetGeorgia. I am a tapestry weaver, longtime knitter and 2013 graduate of Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program.
I created Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a space to hold as much of the textile awesomeness that I could find in and around Vancouver. Here on the VY blog I mostly share about local events, pattern releases as well as share Community Highlights.
