Wool matirials are Cool and Hot!

Wool materials were so Cool and Hot at the market.I bought a kit for this bag.
I'm going to make it!
I like stitches accents that makes cuter.

This store had very cute bags and nice wool fabrics. (Kit)
I wanted to get all but I couldn't buy because I already got one fro others. (First picture)
There were so many attractive materials, styles and accessories at all over the festival.
It was so many choices. It was dangerous for my purse.
This bag was at Nakajima Inc.'s booth, it was used my cotton fabric for inner.
It is interesting combination of different type materials together.
"Candy Dots" Col/Brown from Cutie Pie and Rumba Group.
This Dots design is in Joy Basket -Hoodie's standard Collection
that will be released with more colorways on May, 2010.

Laminated Morning Call Fabrics at Tokyo Dome.

Laminated fabrics are Hot at Japanese market!
It is pretty thick and soft.
Here is my Kettle Rattle / Aqua laminated fabric. (First ppicture)
I hesitated to buy it because it was mine first day at the festival.
Do I have to pay for my fabric???
I changed my mind because it is going to discontinued fabric and it is laminated fabric, I don't have it. When I went back to the booth, ididn't find mine any more. No more Aqua!! Zeeee
A lady was holding yellow colorway of it.
She put it down, then I grabbed it because it was last sheet at there.
I don't know this is a good story or not! haha.
This is thick and soft. It seems good to be a summer bag, a dipper bag, a tablecloth and more.
I haven't decided what I'm going to make yet.
The company, Kumagaya Shouji is selling three coloways of my Kettle Rattle and some of Blank Quilting fabrics.
Country Quilt Market was hanging two my fabrics.
It was my artwok from 10 years ago. It was still at the market.
Each Artwork is bringing me back to the memories of my passed life.

Great meeting at the Tokyo Dome.

I found the store "Early's Print" on the magazine ten years ago because my designs (fabrics) were on her AD.
It was my first time I sew my designs on the Japanese magazine after I moved to US.
I was designing for Michael Miller Fabrics. It was very early time when Michael Miller Fabrics was established (1999).
I met the owner, Ms. Tsuchiya at the Houston show once.
Three years later (2003), I went back to my country finally since 1994.
I visited some major cotton stores in Tokyo getting to know Japanese quilt market.
I met her again.

She bought my designs (fabrics) again after I moved to Blank Quilting (2008) without knowing they were my designs. Great discovering by her taste again!
These my fabrics became Ms. Tsuchiya's bags and hanging at the show.

I've never seen my "Casting Cats" group in Japan.
Look! Great bag! I love it.
She has great bag patterns, check them out!
Everybody loves Morning Call designs!
She sells Kit of it. Click the picture below.
Even she cut motifs from Morning Call Fabric and put on the flag!It was great meeting with her again.
