I am back! We spent the whole day in one craft shop (with a break for lunch). I resisted the urge to buy out the whole store. Instead I showed great restraint by just buying a small selection of half meter cuts.
The new line by Kokka is just incredible. They are favoring the linen/cotton blend in neutral colors again this season. Elephants, fairy tales, robots, rockets, it's all fantastic.
The trip into the city was really worthwhile since the prices are a bit lower. More than that the range is incredible. There were a lot of designs I have not seen in my local store nor on the web.
Other happy news: Leslie from A Little Goodness has asked me to prepare a guest post about crafting in Osaka for her cute blog Japan Craft Journal and
David from Togei has had his idea for a submission about Japan based Etsy sellers approved for a magazine. I may soon be famous!
