A Japanese book clearout

Roll up! Roll up! Amazing clear-out of Japanese sewing and craft books! I could take these to The Cotswolds, but they are now ready for new homes.

The girls and I have enjoyed many lovely items sewn from these but as they now reach being big girls it’s time to move on and let others enjoy these books without having to order them in from Japan.

They are flat rate £10 each plus £2.50 postage in the UK. Email [email protected] if you would like to buy one.

Happy to send more info and photos if a book is of interest but you need more details.

    Don’t get rid of them, Charlotte! Too many really good ones!

      Anna, it’s about a third of the collection. I never read them anymore. I have one major task in life now and I just want to focus on that. Once that’s done I can think about more books.

    I totally hear you, Charlotte. “Moving on to a new stage in life” seems to happen constantly with children in the house! I have had good memories of sewing out of my books just like these. But then it is time to move on, and I gave many away to friends. Rest assured that there will always be new Japanese books in the areas of your interest to satisfy ALL your needs. 🙂 I go to bookstores in Tokyo several times a week, and the inspiration never stops.

    The rolling stone…yes. I feel that in my life in the form of flow, movement. The simplification of space, the flow of air and light (and look at those beautiful new views flowing past your windows!), the flow of life. Go with it.

    Good luck with your settling in, with your photography, and with changes, big and small.
