2016 Giving Ideas: Yarn Bowls and Needle Sets

December 21, 2016

For the knitter that has enough yarn (is that a thing?) there are a couple gift choices that are sure to please. Yarn bowls are a work of art that also come in handy to stop a ball of yarn flopping about while knitting. These gorgeous unique pieces are made by a local potter Talking Clay whose details in each piece are just stunning.



And once a knitter knows the tools they enjoy working with, a needle set is oftern their poison of choice. As with most other yarn stores, we do not usually sell needles with a refund option, but for the month of December any needle set you purchase this month can be exchanged or refunded with a store credit until December 31st to be sure the recipient truly has the tools he/she desires.



And take an additional 15% off all yarn bowls and needle sets on Thursday Dec 22rd and Friday Dec 23rd.

Knit-A-Thon and Warm Things Charity Drive 2016

December 16, 2016

As every year since Anna opened in 2012 we will spend the day knitting & crocheting hats, scarves, mittens etc. to be handed out in the Downtown Eastside. Come spend the day with us for some charity making. Anyone making a donation of warmth will receive 10% off all yarn on the day of the event!

This year we are also encouraging donations of any other good condition warm winter items that are not in use in your household such as hats, mitts, scarves or sweaters/hoodies, handknit or not.

And it doesn’t stop there, you can also bring in any unwanted yarn you may have to be donated for use in this event. Any yarn that is donated but not used will then be redistributed by Baaad Anna’s to various school and seniors groups!

Sunday, December 18th 2016

1pm – 6pm


* Donate yarn to be knit into hats, mittens, scarves (must be in organized skeins or balls – no ends or mini balls please!)
* Come and knit for an hour or two (or all day if you are hard-core!)
* Donate unused, good condition winter accessories


Items knit at 2015 Knit-a-thon

Donations of yarn can be dropped at the store anytime during our regular business hours! For more information contact Baaad Anna’s 604-255-2577 or

2016 Giving Ideas: TIN CAN KNITS Book of Patterns

December 9, 2016


We have some amazing talent in the Lower Mainland fibre arts community. One of the gems is a pair of west coast designers who collectively call themselves TinCanKnits. Currently oceans apart, Alexa and Emily are prolific, publishing a book of 8-12 patterns approximately every nine months; well written patterns that can be picked up by a beginner but with a style that would still appeal to the pro, and with a range of sizes from infant to 2XL.






With something for every knitter, there is a TinCanKnits book for the stocking of every knitter on your list.

And take an additional 15% off all TinCanKnits books of patterns in store on Friday Dec 9th and Saturday Dec 10th.
