My trip to Japan is getting closer

David and I are very excited about going to Japan to study with Bryan Whitehead at his Japanese Textile Workshops.

This is the view from his studio.

Japanese textile outside studioOur trip is fast approaching and we received a package in the mail with our homework assignments.

We love the stamps on the box and plan to do something fun with them.

What was inside the box was all of our homework for the adventure.

We have tons of stitching to do before we go. That way we can have more time in the indigo and get to sleep! We have fabrics to stitch in two different techniques and stencils to cut from very special paper.


This is one piece of fabric that we take a stitch in every other dot.


It is fun seeing the notions we use with all the Japanese writing. IMG_3526 IMG_3525 IMG_3524

I will keep you updated on our progress. We leave for Japan in about two weeks!!!!

Be sure to follow me on this unbelievable journey.
