Sponsor Giveaway: Mwendas

Mwendas is a shop based in Singapore that sells authentic Japanese fabric from Yuwa, Lecien, and other manufacturers — amongst owner Fridah’s inventory you’ll find difficult-to-find designers Suzuko Koseki, Fumika Oishi, Keiko Goke, and Kumiko Fujita, and characters like Miffy. I’ve included some of my own favorites here. She recently became a True Up sponsor [...]

Ed Emberley Fabrics

The books of Ed Emberley, children’s author/artist/drawing-teacher-to-millions, were a huge part of my childhood. Japanese companies have been licensing his work for a while now, putting it on all kinds of textiles, stationery, accessories, etc., including fabric yardage. I featured this fabric a while back, and now there’s a new mini-collection being sold by This [...]

Thank you so much for all the love on the blog birthday post! I hope you didn’t think I was fishing for it, but nonetheless your comments made me so happy throughout the weekend (and through my 10-hour tax-doing marathon yesterday — uuuuhhhngh). I feel like you all have my back, and that I can [...]

Kumiko Fujita Calendar Fabrics

One of my favorite finds from Fall Market 2010, Kumiko Fujita‘s calendar themed collection for Yuwa, is now available in the U.S. at Superbuzzy. They’re very simple, but so delightful and different. I believe the alphabet print at the post is from an earlier collection, but maybe they re-introduced it. all images from Related [...]
