About Island Knits

Project of dyer and fibre creative Emjay Bailey and the elusive Yarnsquatch, Island Knits is a fibre loving network of artists, makers, designers, instructors and community builders.  We support the Vancouver Island fibre community with new opportunities for events, networking and promotional support with a strong focus on community building.

Our amazing volunteers include Spinners and Weavers from the Victoria Hand Spinners and Weavers Guild, Cara Barter of Spirit Song Fibre Studio, Pamela Alix and Maddy.

Island Knits Recognizes the privilege of living, working and creating on the beautiful traditional lands of the Lekwungen speaking people (Coast Salish), a people whose deep and spiritual connection to this land continues to this day. We acknowledge this with gratitude and thanks to the indigenous people of this region and their ancestors, and pledge to tread carefully on this precious territory.

Island Knits believes in diversity and inclusivity and commits to creating and maintaining a loving space free of discrimination online and at all events.
