this last week has been kind of busy and weird. The matilda jane pattern is done but tomorrow I’m going to Thailand (weee!) so just in case there are any problems or issues I don’t want to put it up and then dissapear. Consequently I’ll be back with the pattern in a fortnight or so. I have absolutely no idea when I’ll get much crafting done again though. I’m coming back from holiday and straight into exams. But after that I have some exciting plans. See you on the other side. I’m sure I’ll have internet access some of the time while I’m away so if you want to get in touch go ahead and email.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
