Another great source for Japanese fabric is Ah! Kimono. Their web site is www.ahkimono.com.

I used to love going to Kasuri Dye Works and still have a number of obi fabrics from there. I'll post a pic to the quilt gallery today, "In the Garden of the Night Music" that used a lot of fabric from that store. Thanks for the list of resources, as I don't think that you can have too many frabrics..sfter all, it's important to have choices at 3am when the muse strikes...:)

I too had the pleasure of shopping Kasuri Dye Works several times at shows and one delicious trip to their shop in Berkley. You are braver than I; mine are carefully hoarded and taken out and petted periodically. I thought I would incorporate a piece in a Hoffman challenge quilt a year or two ago, but I just couldn't do it. Beautiful scarf above.

I just recently  started a quilt with Katagami fabric from red rooster fabrics- love the blues and the prints

.found most of the fabric at fabric.com and equilter.The pattern is based on porcelain patterns from the Allentown art museum
