Welcome to the Vancouver Yarn blog. I'd love to keep on top of all the amazing textile related stuff happening around Vancouver and beyond, but it's just not possible! Please 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
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
