SILK WEAVING STUDIO CELEBRATING 33 YEARS ON GRANVILLE ISLAND
March 18, 2020 Update on the Silk Weaving Studio We are really sorry that, for now, we cannot open the doors of the studio and welcome the world into our little haven of lovely textiles and inspiring yarn here on Granville Island. You may see someone working inside but, to keep everyone as safe as possible, we won’t be inviting customers in.
We are working on keeping the website and the online shops, both for Sanjo Silks and for the Silk Weaving Studio up to date and full of great products. We would really appreciate your taking a look.
You will find a nice surprise when you log in to our sites as we are offering a 20% discount on finished items: scarves, shawls, knitting etc, as well as free shipping on yarn orders. We hope this cheers you up however your life is currently being disrupted.
Additionally there will be an rapidly changing display of 3 special items in the window so that our neighbours can enjoy a lovely piece of weaving as they pass by (and phone or email us to purchase if anything takes their fancy).
We will be offering a ‘pick up time’ when you can collect your pre-paid items from the store and we will send orders by mail as quickly as we can. We only ask that you give your letter carrier a big smile when they struggle to your door with your treasures – their lives are probably getting a lot busier.
Any phone messages will be picked up daily and we will call you back if you don’t happen to catch us in. Please be patient with call backs, and maybe include a good time to reach you in your message if you can. We crave your patience with emails too – we will get to them as quickly as we can.
All of the studio team really appreciates any and all of your support, even just good thoughts, in these tough times and hope you can stay safe and find positive things in all the upset. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon when we can shake your hands and share the beauty and softness of textiles in person.

Welcome to the Silk Weaving Studio. We are a working studio and retail shop where several weavers produce and sell hand-dyed silk garments and accessories. Established in 1986 as Diana Sanderson Studio, it is set on a beautiful waterfront location on Vancouver's Granville Island. In 2016, we celebrated 30 years on Granville Island.
Visitors are welcome to explore the studio seven days a week from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. You can also purchase a selection of our handwoven silks online here.
