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]
