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
janna (at) vancouveryarn.com and specify that you'd like to see it on our blog.
Vancouver Yarn is a free resource which links you shops, designers, artists and more which are local to greater Vancouver BC, unceded Coast Salish territory, and beyond.
Our links come from you - Thank you! If you tell us about a dyer, designer, shop (etc) we will add it to Vancouver Yarn. Read our inclusivity policy here.
Vancouver Yarn is run by Janna Vallee of Everlea Yarn.
