I said it before, The Window is my new fave Vancity gift shop. But I haven't shared photos yet. So here they are. They have everything: soaps, snacks, candy, textiles, ceramics, jewelry, art, and the list goes on. AND it's all locally made. I bought a few things during my last visit including a couple of their in-house made aprons as wedding gifts, one cotton and one linen (The linen ones are so gorgeous I wouldn't be surprised if my friend wore it as a dress - lol).
Welcome to the Vancouver Yarn blog! This space exists to celebrate all new local patterns, events, products and businesses. Please help me keep on top of all the local talent by submitting new content.
You can help by submitting the details of an event or new locally designed knitting/crochet pattern, or other newsworthy item and I'll write a blog post about it here on the blog. Thank you! ~Janna Vallee
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the owner 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 single 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 Community Highlights.
Do you have an event, KAL, yarn or pattern release, launch or other thing you want us to post? Just fill out the form at the top of this page, or send your press release to me at
