MORE! New Japanese Craft Books!

Crochet Book for Girls and Boys Designs

On Tuesday I went to midtown to meet with a company vendor and I brought our summer intern, Leslie, with me to learn about meeting with our accessories vendor and what they can offer to do for us. They actually have the greatest crafting workshop imaginable, they are always inviting me to come and play and create stuff, I think I need to take them up on their offer (sorry I'm vague about who I work for or our vendors, I just don't want to give large companies free advertising and they can give me shit for it too.)Anyway, after our lovely meeting with our vendor folks (they are actually really sweet, the ladies who work there)I asked Leslie if she would like to come with me to Kinokuniya Books since it's only a couple of blocks away and I was going to get some fashion mags and of course some crafty books. Of course I can't ever leave there empty handed I got a few more Japanese Craft books and two magazines. I have two more books to post but I didn't get a chance to scan them yet.

New Japanese Craft Books!!!

I went to Mitsuwa in Jersey for a delicious food fair. Even though they had multiple vendors of delishiocity I stuck with my favorite Katsu lunch set. Before hopping back on the Shuttle bus to NYC I ran into the Japanese bookstore in the same strip mall, Books Sanseido , and perused the small craft section. I got lucky and found several books that I don't already have, I'm so exciting to try one of the patterns! Here are the books:
