Watch out Lytton, Baaad Anna’s is planning a visit on June 22nd as a stop on our first ever Baaad Ass Roadtrip! We’ll be taking the show on the road and our whistle stop in Lytton, BC includes a yarn tasting event partnered with Klowa Arts & Handicrafts.
Klowa Art & Handcrafts (est. 2016) is the Fraser Canyon’s artistic hub, with indigenous art and other locally handmade goods, a colourful selection of yarns (including Lytton’s own Garden Gate Yarn), knitting supplies, and more. It’s a refreshing place to stop in Lytton. You can find inspiration in the knitted finished objects, dream over some handdyed yarn, or in July enjoy a coffee in the soon to open Klowa Café courtyard!
Klowa began in a 100-sq-ft space known as Lytton Knittin’, where owner Meghan Fandrich introduced the Lytton area to fine yarns such as luscious Malabrigo or the well curated Vegan Yarn, and offered knitting & crochet workshops as well as patterns from some of the newest knitting designers. Lytton Knittin’ moved two doors down and Klowa began – and suddenly local artists began appearing with their beautiful handmade goods. Meghan (seen below with the one-year-old Klowa Baby) is inspired by the artistic community of the Canyon who make Klowa what it is: a vibrant artists’ centre.
