Vote Stephanie, Lois and Sacha!

Well from the yarn shop where politics is banned, the political endorsements 2018 post. We do make exceptions to rules for members of our yarn family.

In Vancouver I ask you to support  Stephanie Ostler for Vancouver City Council.

Independent, locally-minded, Eco-friendly clothing manufacturer for 12 years, Stephanie and her Devil May Wear clothier, is a Main St. and Granville Island treasure. I wouldn’t have a store without her encouragement and support, which means we wouldn’t have had the money and know-how to open a prop shop for the film industry, which basically means, I owe her everything I have. A cheerleader for women in business, and now in politics, I can think of no person more suited to help lead Vancouver into a better future for everyone. Please vote YES to Stephanie Ostler for Vancouver City Council.

And Lois Chan Pedley for Vancouver School Board candidate for the Green Party.

Lois is an independent business woman, mother, and long time organizer for the Green Party.  She is a caring and dedicated human being, community builder and environmental steward. She would make an excellent Vancouver School Board Trustee.

And I know my store isn’t in Squamish, but if you can vote in Squamish please Vote Sacha Fabry for Squamish Council  of no party, because that’s the way we roll in Squamish.



Sorry we are closed Friday Sept 19th

Oh dear friends. I have caught the cold that has been going around the election campaign here in Squamish. I am completely done in and won’t be making it into the store tomorrow. I am so sorry for the inconvenience. Next up in a Few minutes The Little Big Yarn Shop’s political endorsements 2018. Wait for it in your inbox.


I am still very sick today. I can’t come in. So Sorry. Eve will be in tomorrow. See you next week. All will be well.

Well 3 power outages in 2 days has defeated me.

So, two hydro polls crashed down in accidents, and one deliberately set electrical room fire melting the metres in two days is just too much for me to handle. Every location of home and business has been hit with lengthy power outages in two days, in 4 different locations and two different cities.

So I am closed today. Hope to reopen tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience.
