    Sew Your Own Face Mask - UPDATED JANUARY 2021

    The Remnant Warehouse Guide To Sourcing Materials & Information for Making Masks

    READ THIS INFORMATION BEFORE COMING IN STORE TO PURCHASE MASK MAKING MATERIALS

    Please do your research before you arrive.

    We ask that you come in knowing exactly what you need as we need to limit the amount of time spent in store. We ask that any accompanying persons (husbands, wives, friends, kids etc) wait outside while you shop. Our staff won't be able to guide you through each step of making a mask and what fabrics you will need, as everything that you need to know about making masks can be found online through this post, as well as many other sewing websites. We will be able to point you in the direction of where to find our cotton fabrics and which elastics are available for purchase, but for all other information you can find it in this post.

    Furoshiki - Japanese fabric gift wrapping

    If you (like many of us) find yourself with excess fabrics and offcuts that you can't see yourself using in the near future, maybe you could use these fabrics as an alternative to wrapping paper.

    The Japanese Ministry of the Environment has put together a PDF with diagrams on how to wrap common objects with a square of fabric. If you'd like to make your fabric wrapping extra festive, we have a number of gorgeous Christmas prints online - click here.

    #TRWBagChallenge for #PlasticFreeJuly

    We’ve been doing our best to find ways to reduce our impact on the environment, and one of the measures we took some time ago was to remove single use plastic checkout bags.

    We encourage all our customers to bring their own bags to the store when they shop- even better to bring one that they’ve made themselves using remnant fabrics (like this gorgeous bag here), to save fabric waste! The time has come, when even the large suppermarket chains have removed single use plastic bags, it should become habit now to always leave home with a bag, or take a larger hand bag or shoulder bag with you to free up your arms on the way home. I know there have been days when I’ve made some ‘accidental’ purchases at work- but the great thing about fabric is that you can just unfold one of the larger pieces and put the others inside and swing it over your shoulder like a sack!

    We’d love to see your #memade bags in
