I am from Tsugaru, Aomori, Japan, exactly where Kogin was born and I started learing Kogin when I was a child. So I grew up with many of the traditional art and techniques in Aomori naturally. I have been building my skills and knowledge for more than 20 years and have helped sewers, to introduce the traditions overseas and want to connect with you for fun.

Nowadays there are so many new styles of embroidery patterns but used the original Kogin techniques are still being created by needlework lovers in Japan. Its design and texture are well cared for, beautiful, cute, warm, stylish, and modern…You will find your favourite one from same samples.
I would love to share my Kogin knowledge with all the needlework lovers!
