Wow! I got a call yesterday from a reader of Altered Couture magazine. Apparently one of my brilliant customers, Shirley Goff, had an article published within that involved some of my fabrics used in her Basho Coat project. I can’t wait to see it! I will be ordering copies of the magazine to sell in the Etsy shop and will post here when they are available. I will also offer mixed bundles of vintage kimono silks like the ones used in Shirley’s project. I haven’t offered these in several months due to the move and ensuing chaos, but they will definitely be back in stock starting February.
Also coming in February, Japanese shashiko craft books! These have been sold out since the summer when I did several live shows and the books got snapped up pretty quickly. Folkwear patterns have been mostly out of stock for a while too, so I will be bringing back several popular patterns including the kimono and hakama patterns.
And of course, don’t forget the trunk show this Sunday in Concord, California! Email me for details or to RSVP.
