Are you ready to party?
As you may have heard, Knit City Vancouver is cancelled this year (as expected), and the Knit Social ladies decided not to organize a virtual marketplace. I understand how they came to the decision and respect it.
BUT... I was disappointed. I don't do a lot of shows like many vendors do. And Knit City is the one I always look forward to. It's not just for selling my yarn, but reuniting customers and other vendors, and meeting new customers are all part of the experience.
SO, as someone who couldn't take "no" as an answer, I decided to organize an online event myself. It's called Fibre Love Affair!
Introducing Fibre Love Affair
Fibre Love Affair is happening on October 3 and 4. It is a collection of virtual live-streaming trunk shows by 26 vendors. Most of trunk shows are delivered over Zoom, and link to each trunk show will be posted on the schedule page of our website by the end of September.
Admission is free. But for a security measure, I ask you to register your e-mail address to get a password. The password works for all trunk shows on Zoom, and you can get it here:
In Addition to trunk shows, we are planning to have 2 stitch nights (Friday and Sunday at 8pm Pacific Time) and yoga sessions. There will be also a bingo game you could play for a chance to win $100 CDN shop credit from a vendor of your choice!
Interested? Our website is still under construction as of this writing. But most of vendors are up. So, please visit www.FibreLoveAffair.ca and look around!
If you want to hear more about the show, please sign up for our newsletter at the registration link above, or

I would also appreciate it if you could help me spread the word by forwarding this info to anyone who may be interested in the show.
I hope to see you at Fibre Love Affair!
Fibre Art Love Affair is a virtual marketplace run and operated by local fibre enthusiast, and indie yarn dyer Yoriko Oki of the Fibre Art Studio. Learn more and apply as a vendor here:

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
