Jenny here! Baaad Anna’s is one of my favourite yarn shops! Admittedly, I’m totally biased, I live closest to this shop and it’s easy to get to via transit, to which I am transportationally bound. It’s located directly on E Hastings (not the scary part) between Slocan St. and Penticton St. There’s street parking, if you can get it, or if you turn north on Penticton St. there is a large free parking lot behind the London Drugs that’s a mere half block walk from the store! It’s also conveniently right next to a sushi shop, if you forgot your lunch, and near The Laughing Bean coffee shop on the corner of Slocan, if you need a mid-day caffeine fix.
Baaad Anna’s specialty is bringing you an awesome selection of local fibres. The carry yarn from We Will Tell You All Of Our Secrets, Sweet Georgia, Unwind Yarns, Maine Island Alpaca and spinning fibre from Two Sisters Stringworks! They also carry staple yarns, from Noro to Diamond to Galway to Universal Yarns, you’ll find a range of seasonal yarns and local gems every time you visit. A particular point of interest will be the monster floor loom they’ve got living in the back part of the shop! I’m no weaver and this thing intimidates the snot out of me, but depending on the staffing of the day you might be able to score a demo.
