I am going to be in Vancouver for 9 days in May .... are there any yarn or fiber shops I shouldn't miss? We will be at the Downtown Harbour Marriott.

There is Urban Yarns, Three Bags Full and Birkeland Brothers near downtown. Three Bags Full and Birkeland are about 6 blocks away from each other and Birkeland carries fibre as well as yarn.

http://www.threebagsfull.ca/

If you have time to venture further, near the airport is Wool and Wicker.

Out a bit further where I live we have 88 Stitches and Knitopia. Knitopia also has fibre as well as yarn. If you have a car, just take HWY #1 east to 200th Street exit (about 1 hour out of downtown but worth the drive).


HTH,
Marilyn

Hello! I grew up in Toronto and my mom still lives there.
Meetup.com is a site where you can put in your country, postal code and interest and it will show you all groups related. I put in a Toronto postal code and "knitting" and tons of groups came up.
I know that many yarn stores have "knit nights", like Lettuce Knit on Nassau street on wednesday (I think!). Find a yarn store close by and ask them about knit night- they will at least know where you can find one.
