Washable paper

We discovered Rico’s new washable paper at a trade show recently and went crazy for it! The samples (which you can see in these pics) looked really cool. The paper is tear- and water-resistant and is machine washable up to 40 °C. It softens in the wash and comes out looking sort of like a leathery fabric that you can then sew with a sewing machine, glue with craft or hot glue, paint or dye with textile paint and more!

Rico Washable Paper

We have the paper in three colours – gold, rose gold and silver – and it’s sold by the roll. We seriously can’t wait to see what you do with this stuff! Find our washable paper here.

Make a macrame wall hanging with Zoe Bateman

We are so excited that Zoe Bateman of @toocutetoquit will be teaching macrame at our shop! Macrame is a form of textile-making that uses knots rather than weaving or knitting. In this class you’ll learn macrame basics, including how to get started, the three most common macrame knots that are the basis for most macrame designs, how to use knots to create a pattern and how to customise or design your own pattern for future projects. You’ll leave class with a beautiful wall-hanging and an addictive new hobby! The next class is Monday evening and you can sign up here.
