Giveaway Day

May Giveaway Day



I went to the “Holländische Stoffmarkt” which happened to be in Frankfurt the other day. A “travelling” fabric market with lots of colorful, mainly clothing fabrics but also quite a few patchwork fabrics and notions, too. As I did not plan to go there I had almost no cash (lucky me ;-) ) on me, though I would have loved to buy that striking red linen not really need but sooo nice to have…

Where I did stop to buy – and sadly I really had barely just enough to buy two pieces of fabric - was at the booth of Kiseki – Stoffe aus Japan - authentic Japanese fabric only, in beautiful colors and texture. My photos do not do them justice, at all. The owner, Juliane Reichenbach, was so very nice to even reduce the price for one of the fabrics for me as I literarily gave her my last cents. Though it wasn’t expensive just me being absolutely broke and not ATM near that market…

Pink Bunny Fabric - kiseki  Stoffe aus Japan



I choose a pink – of all colors – rabbit print and the dark blue “rabbit on the moon” panel with 12 picture blocks. Juliane Reichenbach was selling the picture blocks individually but other women were faster than me and had already snatched away the ones I wanted. That is why I bought from the bold got all the rabbits I wanted plus six I know I will not use in my project.

The market looked fabulous and whats the way to go shopping without cash! Still you came away with some gorgeous Japanese fabrics. I would like to enter for one of those cute bunny. I get my Japanese fabrics from Sanshi, locate in Western Australia. Her email is sanshiaustralia@bigpond.com I only met her and quilt shows. I have not seen you online for a long time. I have you on my blog reading list and that was how I know you were posting. I love all your redworks. I love redwork too, but not as much as you. Thanks for sharing. Natima

Susan said...

Cute bunny blocks! My place for Japanese fabric is Bee Square Fabrics.

http://www.beesquarefabrics.com/catalog/index.php?

I only wish we could find it like you can--it would be nice to see it all out on a table before me.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Wyldhare said...

I wish they had fabric markets like that here! I do find it hard to locate Japanese fabrics, so my only source is online.

Sometimes I find odds and ends on Etsy, when I search on Japanese fabric. But I also like to check in on super buzzy. It is at http://www.superbuzzy.com/

I can't wait to see what you do with the bunnies!

Jessica said...

the market looks wonderful! i love www.superbuzzy.com for japanese fabric. thanks for the giveaway!

eriamaude said...

I don't know where to get japanese fabric. Sorry.

But I like the fabric you posted.

Terri said...

I get all of my japanese fabric on Etsy, the selection is wonderful and so many different styles are there as well. Thank you for participating in giveaway day.

two hippos said...

I've gotten Japanese prints from Bee Square fabrics.

I'm doing a giveaway as well and hosting a fabric swap. Come and check it out :)

Alissa said...

I am looking forward to learning where everyone else gets their Japanese fabric, but have bought some from Crafty Planet. www.craftyplanet.com/

My other hobby in addition to sewing is Chinese Painting. Those rabbits look a lot like the style of some of the paintings!

Wendymoon said...

Ooh, I love rabbits! I look on etsy for japanese fabrics.

M said...

Gorgeous fabrics! The market looks amazing! My source is: http://www.fabrictales.com/ship.htm

They have a nice selection of japanese fabrics and ship worldwide.

Thanks for a great give-away!

Jen said...

i love the bunnies!. i don't have a fabric source, unfortunatly.

Kara said...

What cute bunnies! I usually get my Japanese fabric from superbuzzy.com. I love that store!
Etsy is another good place to look for Japanese fabrics. millkara [at] gmail.com

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

Adorable bunny blocks. I have never actually held any Japanese fabric in my hands before :(

lesley said...

oh wow, so generous of you! beautiful fabrics...i've never seen those rabbit in the moon panels!
my favourite website for buying japanese fabric has always been superbuzzy. [i see i'm not the only one!] http://www.superbuzzy.com/

cheers!

Digital Misfit said...

Those bunny panels are fabulous!

I tend to scour Etsy for Japanese fabrics. While many sellers tend to have the same lines, now and then I luck out and find something really unique (not to say that lines like Echino arent amazing, but I like the unusual bits most of all).

LFinn said...

I have never purchased any Japanese fabric, but Etsy and EBay seem to be the best places to find Japanese fabrics. I love the bunny panels!

Tiffany said...

Japanese craft books/patterns/fabric are a pleasure which someday I'll have money to afford! :)

I don't usually like animals, but bunnies are super cute.

(I'd share a source, but haven't ordered any fabric yet.)

Baba said...

I am not very familiar with Japanese fabrics yet, but these do look lovely.

emilyflippinmaruna said...

TracyC said...

I've never owned a piece of Japanese fabric in my life but these would be lovely ones to start with. I do love red work--embroidery--so I've got to go check out the rest of your work.

awaytome said...

I haven't owned any Japanese fabric yet either, but I would love these rabbits! And I am loving looking through your blog. What beautiful things you have made.

no4daughter said...

I have been coveting Japanese fabric for some time now. I would love to win this fabric and make a graduation gift for my daughter, Jessica, because her father has always called her Jessica Rabbit like the character in the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit".

BKelly said...

I am newer to sewing and quilting and have never used Japanese fabrics before. But these bunnies are just too cute.

lahuitrefrite said...

I've bought echino fabric from Bee Square, as someone else mentioned, but that's it for me.

But I love the bunny fabric--esp the rabbit playing the bass--maybe b/c my surname [though not my username] means rabbit...

I have found Japanese fabric online at Etsy that is beautiful. I have purchased some at my local quilt shop. Thank you for such a generous giveaway~

I would love to win your blocks. And...I don't have a source either but have gleaned quite a number of sources from the comments here! Thank you.

Those panels are lovely! And that market must be fun!

I don't have a source for Japanese fabric. I've never thought to search one out but now I think I must after seeing what pretty fabrics you took home!

Thanks you for sharing!

Love the bunnies, especially as I am the year of the rabbit!!! I get my fabrics from all over, including etsy, ebay, and other online shops plus I have a wonderful Japanese friend who has given me lovely FQs that I treasure!
