    I love the Tyvek pieces that you have done. As an art quilter, I am always looking for new techniques, and when I saw the photos, I flipped. I will have to buy your DVD.

      Hi Kate, yes you can recycle the tyvek that you find around the place, and you can also find it pre-packaged and online at Joggles
      Sadly I won’t be at the Brisbane arts and craft show because I now live in Central Florida, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy the show if you’re planning to go there 🙂

    I’m really intrigued by the possibilities of Tyvek, but I’m wondering if it’s safe to heat it. Any chance it’s off-gassing something nasty when heated?

      Anything you burn will have an emission of some sort so you should always work in a well ventilated area. I don’t believe emissions from tyvek are dangerous however if you’re concerned you should contact the manufacturer.

    I just saw this Tyvek used at a display in Oswestry UK. Thought it was amazing. Then I started to look for it on line and found there were many grades and weights. Would 55gsm be ok to sew on and add fabric and paint with acrylic. Loved your pieces by the way

      I’m sorry but I don’t know what gsm I use. I use two types – soft like fabric, and stiff like what’s used in envelopes. You would probably need to try different weights to find one that’s suitable for your particular needs.
