Okay, I'm just learning about this site I've joined. Well I responded to NikoChan's mail and found out I can post a new topic. I live in Hawaii and enjoying making Ragdolls and mini felt dolls from books like Ondori and Country Dolls (Gakken Interior Mook). I just recently called our local Japanese book store to find out that Country Dolls is no longer in print.
However, I am looking for new Japanese Doll making books as well as possibly starting a pattern swap with this group. The sites I've looked online are either in Japanese (which sadly being half Japanese, I am unable to read), or are sooooo expensive that it's ridiculous to try and even buy them online.
I will be looking at my local store, Hokubundo sometime this month. They are in town and I live on the other side of the island....call me lazy
but, I would be more than happy to swap and share, and would appreciate any help or suggestions anyone may have.
