Japanese Fabric of the Week: Suzuko Koseki

{ photo by Jan of Be*Mused }

Jan of Be*Mused, who was one of my hookups for Keiko Goke information, also introduced me to the fabrics of Suzuko Koseki. You might know Suzuko from the Japanese-Craft-Book-That-Started-The-Whole-Japanese-Craft-Book-Craze Patchwork Style, but you might not know that she also designs fabrics for Yuwa. Her latest collection, introduced at the Tokyo International Quilt Festival this year, has a vintage sewing theme. I can’t actually find the entire collection available for purchase online anywhere except Suzuko’s all-in-Japanese site/shop, La Clochette, but keep an eye on Superbuzzy and the Singapore-based Cottons & Linens (link via Craftapalooza) — both shops seem to carry a steady supply of her fabrics.

Thank you so much, Jan, for sharing this information and allowing me to show your images!

    You’re most welcome, Kim! Sew,Mama,Sew carries some of Koseki’s fabric, though not this line.

    Do you mind me asking if you know off-hand where I might find her house plans fabric in yellow? (I’m not sure if that is what it is titled or not.) I’m OBSESSED with it and have been searching for at least a year to find a place where I can purchase it. Feel free to e-mail me at the address provided. Thanks!!
