This weekend is Woolith Faire, Vancouver's annual yarn crawl hosted by the West Coast Knitters' Guild!
From the Woolith Fair website, "Woolith Fair is an event for yarn lovers and fibre artists from the Lower Mainland and beyond. Organized by the West Coast Knittersâ Guild, this three-day yarn crawl is designed to get you out and about, and visiting as many Local Yarn Stores (LYSs) and fibre-related businesses as possible! This is your one-stop spot for everything you need to know about Woolith Fair 2019. Explore the 23 Passport Stops, read the latest news, and check out the Map of where all the stops are located."
âThe Vancouver Yarn calendar shows a few trunk shows that are happening in local yarn shops for the crawl including Caroline Dick at Black Cat Custom Yarn in Chilliwack starting tomorrow! Know of others I can add? Let me know.
Welcome to the Vancouver Yarn blog! This space exists to celebrate all new local patterns, events, products and businesses. Please help me keep on top of all the local talent by submitting new content.
You can help by submitting the details of an event or new locally designed knitting/crochet pattern, or other newsworthy item and I'll write a blog post about it here on the blog. Thank you! ~Janna Vallee
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
