2nd just-mom workshop, and we welcomed a fist non-Japanese participant :)
Jiyoung is native to Korea, but she studied in Osaka, and she's fluent in Japanese (even her spirit is Osaka-people). She's also an expert in blind stitches, and it blew my mind to see how intricate stitches she could make! She's challenging herself to make 2 sets of jinbei for her daughter, aiming to complete by Brooklyn Botanic Garden's Sakura Matsuri! Go Jiyoung!
Another participant, Sumie, worked on making #023 kabuki ichimatsu for her 2.5 year old son. She's a working mom with very busy schedule, but she's committed in making the jinbei by herself. She's traveling with her son to Paris at the end of April, and that's her target. It's good to have the target date/event to work on a piece! Good luck!!
