One of my favorite new discoveries at the Fall 2009 Quilt Market was the Japanese manufacturer Hokkoh. Hawthorne Threads just got in their shipment of two Hokkoh collections, Asagohan (above) and Market Fresh (below), each in three colorways. From what I recall from Quilt Market, the basecloth, though they’re calling it canvas, has a really lovely texture and is a weight and drape suitable for crafts, apparel, or quilting.
I was telling everyone I saw about Hokkoh and begging them to buy their stuff for their shops, so please snatch this up … I have a reputation to maintain!
Oh and hey, Hawthorne Threads is actually giving away a fat quarter bundle of Asagohan this week! See details here.
