Help Japan through its artists
Men are very adaptable creatures. Even after catastrophic events, they can always regain their power and survive. And everything is much simpler if men help each other, not for mercy, but just because they want to give their support.
The Japanese population has recently undergone one of the most terrifying natural disasters of the contemporary history, but they have demonstrated a great dignity and an admirable behavior. There are a lot of initiatives in the world to help our Nippon friends. As far as we are concerned, we just propose to you to buy the products coming from Japan.
There are a lot of embroidery and female designers from Japan like R&D.M.Co who are the authors of the book Boys and Girls
, or Yukiko Ogura, Japanese embroidery teacher in Broderie ruban - les points de base
, and Ayako Otsuka with her Chats et chiens à broder
. We also have to mention Yoko Saito with her Les Patchworks du Bonheur
, the Japanese quilting by Yoshiko Jinzenji in Simple Quilt
and Masako Wakayama with her patchwork in Sacs, accessoires et mini-quilts
Finally, some months ago we have introduced in our catalog a Japanese enterprise that has suddenly conquered everybody's heart: the Sun Felt
specialized in sweets
made with felt. The Sun Felt
is owned by the Seven Islands, Inc.
which has promoted a nice initiative, the “Quilt Drive for Japan”, valid until the 30th of April. They are actually collecting as many quilts as possible to send to tsunami's victims, through the Patchwork Tsushin. Participate by sending your personal quilt to:

It's never too cold for an ice-cream!
Spring is getting closer and the milder temperature of these days invites us to replace the winter boiling cups of chocolate with fresh sorbets and ice creams.
So, after some slices of several types of delicious cakes, the Japanese company Sun Felt
presents its new collection of sweets, the Parfait
: all flavors of ice cream which will be so easy and fun to create.
Here are these 5 new patterns:
Each kit contains all the necessary for your work: felt, threads, needle, padding, beads, plastic cup and, above all, clear instructions in English with describing pictures.
And if you feel too much cold to think about some ice-cream, enjoy these slices of chocolate cake
or of strawberries cake
