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.

New delivery: 1 ton of fabrics

Fortunately we’ll be moving into a bigger office in two weeks, because since we got a huge delivery of 1 ton (!) of fabrics last week we have serious storage issues. We were quite a bit overwhelmed when we got the delivery, as three huge pallets were carried into our office which took away all our leftover space. But we’re super excited about the hundreds of new fabrics we got from the New York label Timeless Treasures. The fabrics are beautiful and we will add them to our shop as soon as possible.

This is just a tiny part of the new Timeless Treasures fabrics we got

Our Christmas Page is online

‘What? Are you crazy? It’s August!’, you might say when reading this. But believe it or not, we have been selling quite a few Christmas items over the last weeks. That’s why we decided to put our Christmas category online on modes4u.com, even though it’s early and we’re still in the middle of summer. WE KNOW. We will be adding more and more products to this category over the next weeks and months, so feel free to take a look whenever you feel like checking out festive fabrics, deco tapes, stamps and more. And don’t we all know the situation when Christmas is approaching incredibly fast and you get all stressed out about it? So take the opportunity and start getting things done early this year.

1st Kokka Fabric order arrived

Today we finally received our first order of Kokka fabrics from Japan. They were sent by courier directly from Kokka’s warehouse and it took only 1 day to arrive. It’s definitely an advantage to be in Hong Kong ;-)

We ordered fabrics with prints like christmas deers, matryoshka animals, cute bears, black kitty, toadstools, Alice in Wonderland and matryoshka dolls. Below you can see 2 pics I took to show you how the fabric bolts were delivered. They came in 2 huge long packages wrapped with a very strong paper outside and plastic wrapping inside.
