A couple of months ago, in our Ravelry group, I created a forum for local textile business to share about their offerings. A recent share was by Rebecca at Wild West Dye:
Hi Janna and BC knitters!
My online shop features Naturally dyed soft DK and Fingering weight yarn, local pick-up is available from New Westminster. All my yarn is available to buy in 25g increments so you can buy what you need. A selection of kits are available. Yarn is delivered in cakes, ready to knit.
I love chatting about colours, yarn and project ideas, if you need help choosing, feel free to contact me on Instagram or Facebook @wildwestdye or email me email@example.com
You can take a look at the collection: www.wildwestdye.com
Black Lives Matter.
Historically protest is responsible for the beginnings of needed systemic shift. It's what happens when injustice persists. Please support it, educate yourself, talk to your family and friends about why you do, and contribute to shifting the consciousness of the white psyche.
Welcome to the Vancouver Yarn blog! I see this as a space that exists to celebrate any and all new local patterns, events, products and businesses. Please help me keep on top of all the local talent by submitting new content.
Contribute by submitting (via the form above) an event or new locally designed knitting/crochet pattern, or other newsworthy item and I'll post 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 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
