  • Three Bags Full – My  local yarn shop.  threebagsfull.ca
  • Urban Yarns – Two locations, One in Vancouver and the other in North Vancouver.  I’ve only bee to the one in Vancouver.  www.urbanyarns.com

  • Maiwa – Located on Granville Island.  www.maiwa.com
  • Wool & Wicker – Located in Steveston.  Finish your fish and chips and then walk over to the yarn shop.  I really like this shop.  www.woolandwicker.com

  • Yarn shops in Wellington and New Zealand – This is a great blog that has several posts about yarn stores in Wellington and other parts of New Zealand.  I haven’t had a chance to visit them all yet, but I did make it out to some of the Knit Worlds and the Red Carpet Tour took us to Stansborough!  kiwiyarns.wordpress.com/tag/new-zealand-yarn-stores/
