Buyers are raving!

This shop got multiple 5-star reviews in the past 7 days.

Announcement    Each of my pieces is approached one at a time and my textiles describe a place, person or feeling through texture. Each of my wraps is signed with vintage scrabble tiles and has a ‘little sister’ “Everyday Scarf.” I use all my thrums in machine embroidered scarves and hand-spun yarn.

I am greatly inspired by my cultural background and where I grew up as a child. My Dutch Oma left me the Glmakra Loom that I use and I spent my childhood watching her and my Maman on the same loom growing up in Central Alaska. BC is new inspiration.

I love going outside rain, snow or shine to crawl around on our many hillsides, in our forests and fishing in our beautiful rivers to gain perspective and inspiration through experience. Since moving onto our sailboat on Vancouver Island I have found much inspiration in the shorelines and trees.

My small batch handspun yarn is also available. Please be aware that all skeins are individual and can vary through the batches.

My “Textiles With a Twist” can be found at
Anthropologie on Granville Street Vancouver, BC
Circle Craft Co-op on Granville Island, Vancouver, BC
Collette’s Frock’s on Lonsdale Ave, North Vancouver, BC.
Little Cricket Gift Gallery, Maple Ridge, BC

My “Textiles With a Twist” can be found at the Circle Craft Co-op on Granville Island, Favourite Gifts in the Lonsdale Quay and Collette’s Frock’s on Lonsdale. In the winter season they can also be found at Leslie Jane in Ambleside.

Hello and welcome to the shop featuring Vanessa T Cunningham. All designs pictured are made by me at every step from a portion of the spinning to dyeing a sampling of the yarns. I make my wearable art garments to be very functional and durable and then the essential enjoyment comes the mixing of the colours. Each one is individual and thoughtfully composed. I believe in using everything(thrums, fleece that washes out in the felting process) and I attempt to run my business with the environment in mind.
