The fRESH fashion show was quite a success. Everything went smoothly and everyone had a lot of fun, especially me! As a student I felt so honored to be included among some very talented and sophisticated fashion designers; Fariba Mirzaie from Gabbeh, Rosalind Aylmer from By Hand and Lina Cuthan from Lina Cutham Designs. I am so greatfull to Fariba for all her hard work in organizing this event as well as for all who volunteered that day including the beautiful models.

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 founded 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
