Worldwide Knit in Public Day is this Saturday, June 10th! There are quite a few destinations in and around Vancouver, so I've made a list for you which is a compilation of ones from the WWKP list and a couple others that I've been notified about that aren't on that list. Feel free to email me with other meeting points and I'll gladly add them.
If you're planning on going to Maker Faire that day bring your knitting and come say hi to me after 1:30pm in the Textile Village.

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
