Textile Fixeries and Stuffy Triage
On the first Sunday of the month, we will be fixing textile things. We have a stuffy triage station for repairing our textiles love ones, sewing machines, various helpful tools, and some know how. We also invite folks to bring their beloved stuffies to the Stuffy Triage Centre to receive assistance in mending, stuffing, replacing eyes and various other tender administrations. Donations welcome to cover supplies, 1-4pm.
On the third Sunday of each month, come hang out and stitch something. Bring whatever project you're working on - darning, felting, hand sewing, embroidery, knitting, needlepoint, crochet, etc. Share tips, bring questions, relax with fellow stitchers and have a cup of tea. This is a free drop in for all skill levels and all ages. 1-4pm
Weaving with Sarah
On the fourth Sunday of each month, weaver Sarah McKinnon will host a weaving drop-in, helping you with trouble shooting, answering your textile questions, and getting you started on new projects. Sarah is warm and knowledgeable and together with you, will make our space a weaving wonderland. Bring your own loom and yarns. All ages and levels welcome, no registration required. $10/family drop-in fee. We also welcome you to come by to watch or try one our small practice looms. 1-4pm

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 created 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
