I had such lovely day at 88 Stitches last weekend and at the end of the day Sue became my first retailer! 88 Stitches is now carrying Everlea Yarn's naturally dyed Organic Merino Sport! I'm thrilled to be in such a beautiful shop run by such awesome people. 88 Stitches is also the only yarn shop that carries Sweet Fiber Yarns, and they also have locally made Yarn Boler pom poms, so you have no excuse to not go now, haha.
You may remember Steve Malcolm's (AKA Mr.Hugzzz) knitting show It Takes Balls to Knit show from five years ago. Well, it's back! Check it out and don't forget to subscribe to his Youtube channel!
Imagine carding wool, spinning yarn and then weaving a shawl - all in one day!
Cheer on local spinning and weaving teams at the Surrey Museum on Saturday as flying fingers spin and ply sheep’s wool into yarn, then weave a beautiful shawl. Watch sheep being sheared and try your hand at weaving and spinning. Wooly crafts will also be on hand for the kids.
Museum of Surrey, 17710 56a Ave

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 send your press release to me at
