I was pleased to be able to attend this year's Quilt Market Houston.

I had so much fun catching up with old friends and discovering new fabrics and buttons.

I look forward to sharing all the wonderful things I found with everyone at the Tokyo Dome Show!

It's that time of year again. The biggest quilt show in Japan, Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival 2019, will be held at Tokyo Dome from January 24th to 30th. 

This year's theme is Quilts meet Impressionism, featuring quilts inspired by the work of Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, and Gauguin.


Three international artists -Di Ford from Australia, Cecile Franconie from France, and Tone Finnanger from Norway- will be sharing their wonderful work. 




Masako will be offering Tokoton Lessons throughout the week, and will focus on applique demonstrations designed to help you enjoy the challenges of tiny and detailed applique motifs.


As always, you can find us in Booth A5.

Please come by and check out our notions and fun new kits!
