I am from Tsugaru, Aomori, Japan - the place where Kogin was born. Naturally, I grew up with many of the traditional Aomori art and crafts and began learning Kogin when I was a child.

I have been building my skills and knowledge for more than 20 years and have helped introduce many sewers to these overseas traditions.

Despite all of the new styles of embroidery patterns today, 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.

I would love to connect with you for fun and share my Kogin knowledge with all the needlework lovers out there!
