Craft Festival in Sapporo

My new US friend, who recently visited Hokkaido and arranged for the weaving lesson for us, told me about this large craft festival in Sapporo. 

 

Her niece was one of the vendors with her business “Enjoy Beads Life”. (If you google "Enjoy Beads Life" you will find images of her gorgeous work.) I was very happy to meet her and her daughter, as well as see her mother again.

The festival had many many types of crafts including beadwork, quilts, grapevine wreaths, wire crafts, tile, felting, and many things involving glue, to name a few.  Some of the booths also offered small classes for a fee. There was also a large area for children to make things. I didn’t think I could take photos at the festival, so I didn’t.

I made a few purchases – some cotton fabric, Some circular linen that I plan to make small bags with and some sparkly rick rack in white and blue.
 

 
 
I hope to be able to attend again next year!

  2. I don't think I have ever seen circular linen. What will you use the little bags for that you will make? Love that sparkly ricrac and the cards they are on too!

  3. The circular linen must be difficult to embroider; but maybe you will use it in another way.
    I hope you can attend this fair next year, too.
