Shop Locally...

I never know how many readers are local. 
If you are, I'm excited to announce that you can now buy hard copies of my patterns at two awesome local shops!

Knotty by Nature

If you've never been into Knotty by Nature I highly recommend visiting. This LYS is so much more than a yarn store, you'll see what I mean after visiting the shop! 

 The biggest appeal for me is the commitment of the owners, Stephanie and Ryan, to enriching the local fibre community. They've created an inviting space with comfy seating and offer things like the Knitting Needle Exchange where you can cast off old needles you don't use and maybe pick up a pair that you will! They are also responsible for launching Fibrations, a new local fibre festival that made it's successful debut back in August.

 Doesn't Rae look amazingly luxurious knit up in this silk/wool blend?

The Cloth Castle

Everyone knows that The Cloth Castle carries a huge selection of fabrics but did you know they also have a knitting nook! 

Not only will you find hard copies of my patterns you'll also find a ton of great samples of my designs knit up by the uber talented Rebecca of Nook.  

...and for those of you who need a little help getting started or want to take your skills to the next level Rebecca teaches a wide range of classes, many of which feature patterns of mine!

 ...oh, and did I mention they now carry SweetGeorgia Yarns!


  1. yay jane! i'm so excited that your patterns are making a real presence in victoria!! yippee!!!

  2. Congratulations! I drooled all through my visit to Knotty by Nature in September. I'll be looking for your patterns next time I'm in town!

  3. So cool. :) congrats on the local business awesomeness!

  4. Yay! That's pretty exciting Jane! I love Sweet Georgia Yarns!

  5. Wow! I hope one day my patterns are in a lovely knit shop! Yours are beautiful!

  6. Love Ryan's hand-dyed wool silk. It is hard to want to steal it all from him before he brings it to the store. It looks really pretty in your pattern! We are so happy we carry your patterns, and they do so well!

  7. You are famous! :) Your patterns are seriously my favorite.

  8. Local shops sell a reasonable wide range of great products. A lot of people out of the habit of shopping locally, and then surprised by the range of products and services. Do not brainwash a large light box advertising, and not everything is cheaper in the stores, especially when you consider the downstream impact of purchase.

  9. Just found you through Shannon - it's weird being a local and seeing the places you frequent become 'famous' through the internet! I live by The Cloth Castle. Thanks for the heads up about 15% off Thursdays (via the classes sign) - good to know :)

  10. I've recently discovered your patterns via Thank you for providing the Ravelry community with your gorgeous and trendy patterns. You're truly talented. Where exactly is The Cloth Castle located?
