Viaje a Tokio: visitamos Kokka

En un viaje reciente a Tokio, la Directora Ejecutiva de modeS4u (Sandra) y el Director de IT (Alan), hicieron una parada en la nueva oficina de uno de nuestros increíbles proveedores, Kokka. Esta firma es bien conocida por la tremenda creatividad y gran calidad de sus diseños y, en el nuevo local, tenían expuestas en una hilera tras otra montones de preciosas telas. Entre las telas de flores, las telas de Echino y otros diseños, la oficina estaba inundada de colores magníficos.


Hablar de negocios y examinar tejidos puede abrir de veras el apetito, así que el equipo de Kokka se llevó a Sandra y Alan a cenar y pudieron saborear la mundialmente famosa ternera Wagyu.

Visita a la Feria Quilt Market 2015 en Minneapolis: Parte 4

Este año, nuestra impresión general de la Feria de muestras textil Quilt Market de Minneapolis fue magnífica y nos encantaría volver a visitarla. Hemos reservado la última entrada para algunas marcas estadounidenses que ya tenemos en nuestra tienda y con cuyos representantes pudimos hablar. Nos gustaron muchísimo los conceptos creativos de Michael Miller y los preciosos estampados de las nuevas colecciones de Henry Glass. Muchas colecciones textiles nuevas de estos proveedores y de otros menos conocidos, como Blank Quilting, ya se encuentran disponibles en modes4u o lo estarán bien pronto. Agradecemos la inspiración a estos creadores y estamos seguros de que, en el futuro, podremos seguir mostrando en nuestra tienda más telas fantásticas.         


Colorful impressions. We know Michael Miller fabrics will always brighten up our lives.

Visitamos la feria de artesanía Japan Hobby Show 2015: Parte 1

Este año, parte de nuestro equipo se desplazó otra vez a Tokio para asistir a la feria de artesanía y manualidades Japan Hobby Show, una gran exhibición de productos artesanos, telas, papelería y muchos otro. Nos impresionó de veras la cantidad de ideas y diseños nuevos de los expositores. Lo que nos gusta en especial de esta feria es que siempre está abierta al público y hay muchas oportunidades de probar diversos productos de manualidades, así como nuevo equipamiento para aprender técnicas diferentes. Como es habitual, hicimos demasiadas fotos y no podemos mostrárselas todas pero sí queríamos enseñarles algunas de nuestras imágenes favoritas y lo que nos pareció más memorable.

Hobby Show de Japón Parte 6: el mundo de la costura

En Tokio, en el Hobby Show de Japón, no sólo se podían ver unas telas increíbles, sino que además se podía trabajar con ellas. En la sección ‘Fabric & Sewing World’ (el mundo de las telas y la costura) había una zona entera equipada con montones de máquinas de coser a disposición del público. Y estaban muy solicitadas, todos los sitios se ocupaban continuamente. Nos impresionó la variedad de personas que se sentaban a coser. En principio, pensábamos que serían adultos y costureros experimentados quienes usaran las máquinas, pero también vimos a unas cuantas niñas manejándolas como si lo hubieran hecho toda la vida. Y apenas eran lo suficientemente altas como para llegar a ellas.

Bienvenidos a la feria Hobby Show de Japón Parte 1

Parte de nuestro equipo fue hace un par de semanas a Tokio para visitar la feria Hobby Show de Japón. Era una exposición realmente genial, con mucho que ver y probar. Como estaba abierta al público, había muchas ocasiones de utilizar distintos productos de artesanía y manualidades, como telas, pasta de modelar, pinturas de colores, distintas técnicas, etc. Hicimos cientos de fotografías que queremos enseñarles. Así que hoy empezamos nuestra pequeña serie sobre esta feria con algunas impresiones generales en imágenes.
