Giveaways Japanese Fabrics

6th Birthday Giveaway

December 13, 2017

And before we know it, another year has come and gone. Japanese Sewing Books is turning 6 today! Those of you who have been following my blog may know that I have been busy preparing for my PDF pattern shop that will be launching really soon. But don’t worry, I am still going to keep blogging about Japanese sewing books. In fact, I have more books to reviewΒ and I will get back to reviewing them once my shop has been launched.


In line with tradition, we have to celebrate blogiversaries with giveaways… right? So here’s what I’m giving away today! The latest book by Couturier Sewing Class (book review here), as well as 4 different colors of Koizumi knitsΒ generously sponsored by


For those of you who are not following me on IG, this is what I made with this super soft knit from Koizumi fabrics. This dress is the relax dress from the book by Fu-ko basics (book review here)


TheΒ dress is really comfortable and easy to wear, you can even skip the back button enclosure if you are lazy πŸ˜› but it is so much nicer as a design detail. You don’t even need to unbutton to get into the dress.

Koizumi fabricsΒ are usually meant for domestic market and and it was hard to buy them previously without having to go through the Rakuten + shipping forwarding method. Until I found them on nekonekofabric. Unfortunately, after I posted the photo on IG, the mint seems to have gone out of stock, I hope the stock will be replenished soon, but here’s how you can win some!


There are 4Β colors, 1meter each, up for grabs!

So this is how it will work. There will be 4 prizes. The first person picked out of the entire pool of entries, will win the book plus her choice of fabric color.Β The rest of the entries will be grouped by color and one winner will be picked from each of the remaining 3 colors. I hope that’s not too hard to understand… But anyway, just take part and you might win something πŸ™‚

To take part, you have to comment on the color of fabric you want. You can either

  1. Comment below
  2. Comment on the giveaway post on IGΒ 
  3. Comment on the giveaway post on Facebook

One comment per person please. Duplicates will be deleted. Obviously if you comment on all 3 channels, you will increase your chances of winning. And yes if you comment on all 3 channels with different colors, you will also increase your chances of winning something! Especially if you can’t decideΒ which is your favourite color.

The giveaway will end 15th December 9am Singapore time (UTC+8). Winners will be announced the following day. Good luck!

This giveaway has ended, and the winners are
