The past six weeks have been super busy! I'm prepping for an exhibition which is opening on January 5th (at Kube Studios on the Sunshine Coast), as well as organizing American Tapestry Alliance's forthcoming blog tour and I have two Intro to Tapestry weaving workshops coming up. One workshop is in Gibsons in February and the other is in Surrey in March. Check them out.
I have been weaving almost every evening trying to get at least one more big piece off the loom for the show, which means I haven't been getting much knitting done at all.
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.
