About Us

Welcome to Calico and Ivy.

We've been sharing our passion for creating since 1983, providing inspiration to everyone who visits our store. 

That inspiration continues in a different way now. Choose one of the following to keep connected to us:

  • link to our Instagram @calicoandivy
  • watch videos on our YouTube channel HERE and
  • take a peek at our Workshops page for class details.

Our website displays just some of the ranges we have in beautiful fabric, yarn, gifts and linen, but we have loads more to upload for you so keep in touch!

In 2017, as a team, we all pledged support for the national campaign "Racism. It Stops with Me".

This campaign is a key initiative of the National Anti-Racism Strategy developed by the Australian Human Rights Commission. If you would like to learn more about this campaign, visit https://itstopswithme.humanrights.gov.au/about-campaign.

Stand with us.

We are committed to providing a safe, supportive and inclusive space for all people who love to stitch, sew, knit and crochet, free from all forms of discrimination, bullying and harassment. 

We take a public stance against racism in our community, and we have a code of conduct that applies to all staff, teachers, customers and visitors alike. 

NO racism and discrimination will be tolerated.

NO bullying or harassment of any kind will be tolerated. 

Calico and Ivy has been a place of happiness and creativity for so many years, and we will never change this.
