Efco now stock Cernit Polymer Clay. This is a middle of the road clay which falls somewhere in between Fimo Soft and Classic in consistency. It is considered a very strong clay (possibly the strongest available on the market) with good adhesion and fine detailing qualities. It also works wonderfully with Efco’s new Texture Mats…
(Space Texture Mat used to create the round ring pictured above.)

We are looking forward to meeting everyone at Stitches this year. As usual you will find us on Stand G25 towards the back of the hall (not far from the coffee area).
One of the crafts we will have on display is Paracord braiding – a craft which appeals to a wide audience, boys and girls alike. Originally popular with climbers as a convenient way of carrying extra cord it has now crossed over into the craft world and is especially popular with boys. Macramé knots and Kumihimo weaves can be found amongst the Paracord braids and crafters will find countless free instructions available on the internet.
Retailers will find that they can cross merchandise with Efcolor Enamelling, Metall Art and Efco’s large holed beads as these can be combined within the braids or added as an embellishments on top.
Fiona Jones will be demonstrating how easy it is to create paracord braids with Efco cords and click buckles so we hope you can join us on Stand G25.
