Japanese Craft Book Review- Simple Stitch Life

I apologize to any visitors on my lack of writing lately. Its nearing holiday season and my mind as been elsewhere.

OK, here is my first review.

Simple Stitch Life

ISBN 978-4-579-11103-9

Yen 1300 (You do not pay the tax price if ordering internationally Y 1365)

This is a very cute book in my opinion and as the title dictates, the designs are very simple and almost “imperfect”. The pictures are inspiring and the patterns are easy to follow and use some of the most basic embroidery stitches (I am not an expert at embroidery!).

Tip: If you plan on purchasing several books at one time consider ordering directly from Amazon Japan. The shipping cost is Yen 2700 with a handling charge of Y300 for each additional item but the costs are still lower than ordering from a US dealer since you are not paying more than double the cost for 1 book. Shipping to Canada only took 3 days and I paid no duty or tax since DHL is good with handling items plus air shipping usually factors in the cost of a brokerage fee in the shipping.

Here is the link to Amazon Japan for this book:
