Everlea Yarn is consciously sourced yarn dyed with plant dyes. Our signature line of fingering, sport and worsted weight merino wool yarns begin as 100% organic merino sourced from New Zealand which is spun in Ontario and then dyed with plant dyes in British Columbia by Janna at Everlea Yarn.
About Janna Maria
I am a 2013 Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate from Concordia University's Fibres and Material Practices program (Montreal). I first learned how to dye textiles and weave tapestry in 2008 during my two years in Capilano University's Textile Art diploma program under the instruction of West Dean trained tapestry weaver and professional dyer, Anthea Mallinson. In 2014 I began weaving tapestry as my primary artistic medium when I received my first Mirrix Loom and haven't looked back. I have been offering textile workshops for over a decade, including an invitation in 2011 to Aurora College (Northwest Territories) to teach my self-designed five-week textile art program. I launched my series of online tapestry weaving lessons with the School of SweetGeorgia in October 2019.
Learn to weave in person with Janna
Join me in my Sunshine Coast studio for one-on-one weaving instruction. Currently, one-on-one instruction is discounted by 40% ($30/hr, regular $50/hr) until group instruction is allowed to resume. COVID measures are in place for the entirety of in-studio instruction.
Learn to weave online
I have launched two comprehensive online workshops with the School of SweetGeorgia. Fundamentals of Tapestry covers the ins and out of blending colours, building shapes in tapestry, troubleshooting common tapestry issues as well as finishing and mounting techniques. My second series, Techniques in tapestry covers tips for smooth horizontal lines, multiple approaches to vertical lines, avoiding slits with weft interlock, and how to block your tapestry.
Paid memberships at SOS begin at 19USD/month and include access to all my lessons, as well as the entire School of SweetGeorgia library of fibre art lessons.
