My item is on an English craft magazine!


An editor of Sew Hip magazine sent me a message one month ago and my fabric tea cup is on it!
It's the first time for me. Even if I cannot get the magazine in Japan, but I'm happy!
But because of my mistake, they thought my name "Arigato"...

So they wrote, "Arigato lives in Japan and loves to sew creations by hand.".
My name is Mai, and I usually close my message with "Arigato", means "Thank you"...

Congratulations...and that's too funny that they thought that was your name. Could have asked, couldn't they! :)

Oh my goodness, congratulations! You must be so excited! Do you have a way to obtain a copy of this magazine for yourself?

(Miss "Arigato" That's too funny!)

Ha ha, that's too funny. I wonder if anybody thinks my name is 'cheers'. Because that's how I sign off my emails. Hee hee.
Congratulations, the teacup is super cute.

Congratulations! How exciting! I am a big fan of Sew Hip, but being a former editor, I often find a TON of silly mistakes, typos, etc. Oh well, you're famous anyway. ;)

Thank you very much!
I cannot get this magazine, but I'm OK with these pictures.

I like the word "Arigato", so I'm happy with the misunderstood name!

Thank you and have a good day for you all!

I have just found your site and I am enchanted - your sewing is really beautiful and your ideas so much fun. I love the cloths you make and will be trying to do my own - but I am so used to machine stitching - I love that you do everything by hand, so i am going to try and learn to slow down! Lovely that you are in a magazine - you really deserve to have lots of success with your wonderful work! Take care!

まいーさん!おめえとう!That is just crazy that they thought your name was Arigatou! Oh dear - I think the sub editor will get in trouble for this one!
But congratulations! Your work is sooooo amazing! I love your onigiri pouches! They are amazing! I found out about your work on Three Buttons! So super lovely! I will come to Tokyo next month - can I buy your stuff from a shop there?
かわいい!
