Japanese craft books

Finally, an Australian source for Japanese craft books - Simply pretty Japanese beads books on eBay. Yah!

Burda style

Burda have started a virtual sewing circle called Burda Style. You can post photos of your own creations, share ideas and seek advice from others in the community. They have also included some free patterns that you can download, print and piece together.


Amy Butler just keeps getting better. I absolutely adore her new fabric range, Lotus. The range is suitable for all of the usual things (bags, quilts, cushions, etc), but seems particularly well suited to clothing. It's just a shame it's the tail end of summer down here in the southern hemisphere.

Some of my favorites...

Handmade in Melbourne

I'm currently reading this...

It's a fantastic book that showcases the work of 80 Melburnian craftspeople, from jewellers to textile designers to breadmakers. The photography is beautiful!
