We have got an international phone call the other day.
A lady who spoke fluent Japanese on the phone, contacted CRIB QUILT as she checked our activity "Anata to Watashi no Quilt (Patch for Japan)" on our blog.
She told "I plan to go to Ishinomaki one of these days so would like to have a phone number of NASA that is Yoko's quilt shop to see her."
Then Yoko emailed me to tell that the lady visited her shop!
She is Shanti, from Qatar and has studied at a university and taught English one of high schools in MIyagi prefecture. That's why her Japanese is good!
She is also a quilter and brought her works to some disaster places in Ishinomaki. That was the 2nd visit for her since the tsunami happened.
We are curious to know what kind of quilts she makes!
There are what Shanti brought to Yoko as gifts.
We feel the circle of our quilt friends is getting bigger!
