YYJ Craft Crawl is a Safe, Fun, and Social Distance Friendly Market! Think wine tour or Christmas light tour but for vendors. In light of everything that has transpired in 2020, the majority of local markets, craft fairs and events have been cancelled, leaving hundreds of vendors, artisans, crafters, bakers, etc, without anywhere to sell their products. So we decided to put together the YYJ Craft Crawl, an event where vendors set up in their homes, driveways, studios, garages and customers travel from vendor to vendor.
We have 4 events planned so far in 2020:
Saturday, October 17 (Westshore + Sooke)
October 24 (Victoria, Saanich, Esquimalt, Vicwest, Oak Bay, View Royal)
November 7 (Saanich Peninsula - Beaver Lake to the Ferries)
November 14/15 (ALL Greater Victoria- Sidney to Sooke).
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
