Workshop with students living in a same town!

Yesterday we gave a workshop to students living in our same town!
The workshop was held by neighborhood association of regional affairs from Nakahara ward ( where we live) office.
They put an ad on a local free paper..then just within a matter of a few hours it got full!

It was a 2 hour-workshop from 2pm till 4pm with 20 students.
Some were beginners, others were experienced....but it didn't matter...we all enjoyed sewing together!
Carrying a sample of a project (eco-bag)....

 We hope that they will be interested more in Quilt by this workshop and go on further!



Have you ever heard of this word? Danshari?
I guess it comes from Yoga or Buddhism..it consists of 3 words, Dan+Sha+Ri.
Dan means cutting out, Sha means throwing away and Ri means leaving..it is kind of difficult to describe these words in English, as it doesn't have the exact same meanings.
In short, they recommend the simplification.
Nowadays we carry too much stuff and stress..so it is getting popular in Japan to throw away what you don't really need in order to have a simpler life.
It might sound like detox.
Today we introduced it to CRIB QUILT. It would be a good timing of looking at yourself again, to see your real surroundings and also a relationship between you and your belongings!



We have been developing a new website for quite some time, and it will be finally ready to be revealed next month.
The new site will make it much easier to find the products you are looking for, and is also very beautiful!

Big Cat

Every month I go to Osaka for lessons.
Before a lesson starts, I wander around the neighborhood.
On the way to a hotel where I give a lesson, I ran into this big cat!

Spring's so far away...

It started snowing last night.
As there was a fire in front of our house last December, none of buildings were in our sight.
