A couple of months ago, in our Ravelry group, I created a forum for local textile business to share about their offerings. A recent share was by Rebecca at Wild West Dye:
Hi Janna and BC knitters!
My online shop features Naturally dyed soft DK and Fingering weight yarn, local pick-up is available from New Westminster. All my yarn is available to buy in 25g increments so you can buy what you need. A selection of kits are available. Yarn is delivered in cakes, ready to knit.
I love chatting about colours, yarn and project ideas, if you need help choosing, feel free to contact me on Instagram or Facebook @wildwestdye or email me firstname.lastname@example.org
You can take a look at the collection: www.wildwestdye.com
Black Lives Matter.
Historically protest is responsible for the beginnings of needed systemic shift. It's what happens when injustice persists. Please support it, educate yourself, talk to your family and friends about why you do, and contribute to shifting the consciousness of the white psyche.
Due to COVID 19 the rescheduled July date for the Fibres West festival has also been cancelled. Next year's festival is scheduled for March 19th and 20th, 2021
YO2020 is Cancelled.We are sad to share that this year's Yarn Okanagan event is cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Cancelling fibre events like Yarn Okanagan comes at a cost to all parties involved but most of all our vendors. We encourage you to shop online from the comfort and safety of your home and support the artists we love in this industry. Some shops may run promotions closer to the event. Please watch our (and their) social media platforms for more information.
