I am thrilled to be the first stop on Jane Richmond's blog tour which includes a giveaway of her fantastic new book, Island. If you're not yet in the loop about this wonderful gem take a look at this post on Jane's blog, this video preview, as well as this interview about it on A Pagan Knitter's pod cast. Then come back here on the 8th when I will be reviewing the book, sharing some of my projects from it, and giving a copy of the book to one lucky winner. If you want a heads up about the giveaway join our mailing list for a reminder (as well as other fun updates and goodies).
See Jane's blog here for the full line-up of tour stops.
Happy New Year!
Welcome to the Vancouver Yarn blog! This space exists to celebrate and spread the word about all events, new local patterns, products and businesses.
Submit the details of an event or new locally designed knitting/crochet pattern, or other local DIY news and I'll post about it here. Thank you! ~Janna Vallee
Hi, I'm Janna. I'm the proprietor 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 created Vancouver Yarn in 2008 as a 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 share 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
