We’ve got a new book in both Kensington & Parkdale serving as great motivation to pick up a new hobby!

This DIY book called “Made in Paracord” is an awesome tool with lots of great project ideas inside. We tried our hand at some paracord knotting and were able to make a couple of necklaces!

You will be amazed by the variety of different DIY pieces that can be made with paracord.

Try your hand at some knotting projects with this informative book!
