Yarn and Sew On is a small business in the community of Burns Lake, B.C. that was started in 2013. It has quickly found a niche in the community for supplies for quilters, knitters/crocheters and cross stitch people. The shop carries brands such as Hoffman and Moda, Kim Diehl, 100% cotton fabrics. Yarns from Sirdar and Berroco, DMC floss, Dimensions and children’s kits for cross stitching. Yarn and Sew On offers a wide variety of classes showing you how to how to quilt, knit/crochet and cross stitch for both beginners and seasoned veterans. Linda Uchacz recently decided to change her career from bookkeeping and accounting to do something fun - open up Yarn and Sew On! As a longtime crafter she wanted to provide high quality products that previously couldn’t be found in Burns Lake. In some cases, Linda notes, people had to travel over 80 km to find what they were looking for, and she is pleased to be able to meet those needs much closer to home now.  In 2016 we are adding an online store so you can shop from the comfort of your crafting corner.
