Our paper catalog is now available as a pdf file! Due to the currently, constantly changing prices we cannot have a paper catalog printed at this time.

Paper Catalog: Click here to see and print the pdf version of our paper catalog. Updated 1/9/2014 - Please be sure to verify the current prices in our online catalog.

Please Note: Due to rising inflation, manufacturing and shipping costs around the world, the cost of materials and products is rising, often with no warning and with every new order. We never increase our prices unless our supplier increases their product pricing. Some price increases we can absorb, some we can not. Prices are subject to change without notice. The on-line catalog is always current. Thank you for understanding.
We are sorry to say that we are suspending our quantity discounts for reeds and pre-woven cane until further notice. At this time we are not always able to get the materials that we have on order. There is a limited availabilty of some raw materials and we do not know when out of stock supplies will be shipped.

Please note: We will be open only select Saturdays. Please check our new Calendar Page. All our events, normal and special hours for the year in one place.
