To help make your venture into tapestry weaving a simple one I've begun a series of helpful blog posts and videos. They make the bulk of our Tapestry Weaving Resource page and are accompanied by some key videos that the ladies at Mirrix made, too. My videos are not as professional as I'd like, and yes I was wearing the camera around my neck for a portion of the "finishing woven tapestries" video, but they do the trick. Enjoy them, and be sure to let me know of any other videos or blog posts you're interested in seeing here.
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
