Japan Hobby Show – Part 3

To wrap up the posts on this year’s Japan Hobby Show 2016, we want to show you pictures of some of the amazing clothes we saw! Using all sorts of beautiful fabrics, we saw some incredible pieces of work. These included dresses, baby items and more. The ones we found on display, which you can see below, featured very intricate and delicate designs. They featured many patterns too such as polka dot patterns, flowers etc. We were even able to check out a fun fashion show in which the models strutted their stuff in elegant everyday clothing items. Sewing enthusiast were especially loving the various amounts of fabrics on display and there were plenty of fabrics too! All in all, it was a fantastic show and the enthusiasm from the crowd made the event more memorable. We can’t wait for next year’s show!

Welcome to Japan Hobby Show Part 1

Part of our team went to Tokyo a couple of weeks ago to visit the Japan Hobby Show. It was a really great exhibition with lots to see and try. As the trade show was open to the public the whole time, there were lots of opportunities to actually use different hobby products like fabrics, clay, colours, different techniques etc. We took hundreds of pictures which we want to show to you guys. So today we’re kicking off our little series with some general impressions from the show.
