Sweet Creema

Nuido It Yourself - Japanese Embroidery with Madeline Scharpf


Happy Easter, my stitchers! I’d love to give you all heaps of sweets but alas, the internet hasn’t developed a way to deliver chocolate digitally so instead, here’s some candy for your eyes.

Creema is basically an Etsy in Japan. I’m using ‘Etsy’ as a catch-all term for a website where one can buy handcrafted items.






Unfortunately, unless your Japanese language skills are superior to mine, you won’t be able to purchase any items from Creema. The up-side is, you can peruse without the fear of an impulse buy!

The categories on the left of the page are in Japanese but that shouldn’t stop you from giving them a click and seeing what comes up.

This translation gem on a needle felting kit is slaying me. LOL!

Last month I offered a free copy of Yumiko Higuchi’s English translation, ‘Simply Stitched’ to one of our amazing readers. It’s been brought to my attention that my comment section wasn’t cooperating. I apologize to everyone who tried to enter but could not. Despite the trouble, I had several dedicated souls who went the extra mile to enter by contacting me personally, also via our social network Weave, and on our Facebook. A winner has been chosen! Congratulations!
