May Martin Talks about Calico Fabric

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_video link=”” align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In this video May Martin talks about the benefits and many uses for Calico Cotton Fabric. May describes Calico as a staple in the sewing world and why it has been for many years.

May recalls how she used Calico when training to make her own toiles. This firm cotton fabric is used in upholstery to hold the stuffing in furniture. Calico is also a good fabric for re-enactment and period costumes, as it has an aged feel to it.

May explains that because Calico Cotton is a natural, unbleached fabric, it absorbs dyes well. Calico is also perfect for screen-painting.

A great fabric to play with, May encourages everyone to experiment with Calico and different dyes. Keep a little Calico in your fabric stash and see what you can create.[/vc_column_text]
