this is a tiny way to help Japan with rebuilding, and to some of us it would give a bit joy too...
Following the foto, link and quote by the designer Reiko Arato, you can buy and download the pattern via Ravelry
I was born and grow up in Sendai, Japan, and have lived in Shanghai, China since last year.
My parents live in Sendai. Many friends also live there.
For my hometown and Japan which had suffered serious tsunami damage, I had thought what I was able to do from Shanghai.
Then, I decided to sell my pattern and to contribute the total amounts I received for Japan to the Japanese Red Cross Society.
The pattern consists of one page.
In the stricken area, hygiene, food, information, and all other things are insufficient.
I hope you will cooperate with me.
thanks to kristin for showing that pattern at our Stitch'n Bitch meeting yesterday.
