Peace of Yarn Initiative.
A wonderful longtime knitting friend recently spoke to me about an innovative idea for a knitting group and wondered if the store might provide a venue for this group. The group would be called Peace of Yarn Initiative and would be a knitting and discussion led group that would delve into topics as varied as the music and writings that inspire us, approaches to challenges and how we all deal with decisions, personality style, social politics, and other things you may be pondering. A group where ideas of peace, whether in own lives or even as a global objective would be talked over while knitting, either our own projects or with yarn and projects made available free of cost as future "peace offerings" given to others.
We would like to offer an opportunity to meet and knit together while discussing topics of interest and to dedicate attention to generating efforts to create a small wellspring of peace and compassion as our contribution to existing efforts directed at World Peace and peace in our own lives. Each peaceful act matters. Can a little knitting group such as Peace of Yarn help inspire greater peace one stitch at a time? Let's see! We would like to invite interested knitters to join us to talk about the formation of this group, ideas of interest, goal, etc., and to decide when and how often the group should meet. We are looking at a Thursday night meeting starting at 7PM. Come and join us!
Until we can set up our group, come and join our passionknitter's knitting group Thursday nights from 7 - 9 PM. Come and have tea and refreshments and discuss all things passionate with other like minded knitters. 604-275-1239.

We do mail order. All of our yarns are available by the ball. Prices will be found in the yarn price list. We also offer a wide range of group classes. Our shop is the "Linus Project" drop-off station for the lower mainland. To learn more about this fabulous organization, see projectlinus.org, if you can't get involved by knitting, crocheting, sewing or quilting blankets for children in need, we could use some helpful hands in preparing the blankets which we receive from our generous and loving donors for pickup. The ladies meet here in the store every second Friday of the month in the afternoon to sew on labels and wrap them with ribbon. Call first if you want to make sure there are some blankets for you to work on. Or, you could bring your knitting/crochet project and chat/knit with the other ladies, maybe work on a blankie with company? We also would love to accept donations of yarns or materials suitable for the blanket makers. While you are here, become a "Passion Knitter's Club" card carrier, and accumulate purchases for discounts and a once a year draw for a $50 gift certificate for the store.
The store is located in Steveston, a nostalgic refuge and historic fishing village in the southwest corner of Richmond, twenty minutes from the Vancouver airport, on the Gulf of Georgia. Take No.1 Road south of Steveston Highway, turn right at Chatham and then left on Second Avenue. We are halfway down the block on the right hand side. Look for the painted scene window. Park behind building if no space available. Leave yourself time to visit the fresh fish dock, the local park and playground, and shop the unique gift, book toy and fashion stores, or tour the Gulf of Georgia Cannery. Try dinner at one of our many wonderful restaurants and wear off the calories with a stroll around Garry Point Park to watch the sunset, the kite flyers and the boats along the Fraser River.
