About the Guides

These travel guides came out of a desire to make it abundantly easy for yarn and fabric lovers to find local, independent shops all across Canada. Whether you’re embarking on the classic cross-country road trip or you’re getting to know your own area better, we hope you’ll explore with these guides in hand. And we hope you’ll strike up a relationship and do good business with the hundreds and hundreds of individuals who dedicate their time and energy to the crafts we love.

In the PDFs, each business that has a website or social media is clickable or tappable so you can go directly to their site from the guide, as long as you view the guide on a screen (please save paper and view it on a screen!). If you do need to print a listing, please print only the page(s) you need.

The guides were made possible by the dedication, tenacity and creativity of Digits & Threads sales and marketing coordinator, Zoe Desborough; by the financial support of advertisers (find their ads throughout the guides!); and by the many readers, social media followers, and craft lovers who let us know about the shops in their area and throughout the country.

We are listing each guide seperately. While we know many crafters love to make things from both yarn and fabric, we want to give folks the option of focusing on just one kind of shop. So please download both if you’d like. They’re free!
