Here's a peek of an new piece I installed for the first time today. It's called "Michael is this a joke?" and is based on a nightmare I had. I haven't had much time to step back and decide how I feel about the piece as a whole, so I'm only showing a snippet of the part I'm excited about so far. Maybe more soon. The speaker plays the sound of an idling diesel truck when the viewer is close enough to cast a shadow.
Art school is pretty fun :)
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.
