The year started with a book party with the small handmade books of Jody Alexander of Wishi Washi Studio and Blue & White books. And now, in December, as the days dwindle down to a precious few, my heart is filled with magical moments of the year now ending.
Sugiura Kazuko, a favorite character appeared in her own handmade creation finished just the night before our BORO Celebration in September. You couldn’t miss her! Below the BORO creators: Mieko Kobayashi, Nora san from Iwate, and Yamazaki san of Nagano.
Two Sashiko workshops each month. Classic Sashiko taught by Yoshiura Kazuko Sensei on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. And Zaku Zaku, zany Sashiko taught by NONOICHI on the 4th Friday. Above is a delightful Sashiko creation by an Israeli student depicting our beloved Otafuku and her consort. Sashiko is a great enabler!
Our dynamic 2020 Calendar filled with ideas and creations of our clever makers who work with needles and threads.
2020 promises great things for us all. And small things as well, like mice and sewing projects and threads and needles. The Blue & White Furoshiki is filled with ONE OF A KIND THINGS MADE BY HAND.
Another blue ribbon/banner year for Blue & White – an amazing institution and inspiration
So many treasures over the 44 years still ring true to the original Blue and White vision to honor the creativity and beauty in the handmade. Here’s to the 45th! Happy New Year!
Every photo beautiful and inspirational! Am so much looking forward to visiting again from NZ, in February. Happy New Year to you all.
Once again the calendars were a bit hit as Christmas presents. You have a loyal following!
Thank you for the inspiration year ’round! Wish I could be there all year, but a few days over the winter holiday break will have to suffice. Looking forward to stopping by Blue and White soon.
