Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"Omiyage" is the Japanese word for gift. Sudo, author of a number of books on Japanese quilting including Harmonies & Hurricanes: Color & Line in Japanese Quilts and Circles of the East, here turns her attention to small, handmade, fabric gifts requiring only simple hand sewing, colorful fabric scraps, and imagination. Forty-three original designs for gifts such as fabric Temari balls, boxes, pincushions, pockets, pouches, and evening bags are featured. The author also includes a teaching plan for instructors wishing to use the book as a textbook for sewing classes. Notes on techniques and background information on the place of personal gifts in the Japanese calendar throughout the year add to the appeal of this unique volume. Highly recommended for large public libraries and textile collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
