Have you ever visited the Superbuzzy online fabric store?
It has THE best selection of Japanese fabrics and notions and patterns on the internet.
Well, I was thrilled when I found out there was an actual brick and mortar store only 20 minutes away from me in Ventura Califonia!
Japanese pattern books
Japanese craft kits
This store is a crafter's and sewists paradise!
Ever since my expedition to Tomato fabrics in Tokyo last March which you can read about here, I have been in love with Japanese fabrics, sewing patterns, and craft supplies.
You should see the adorable buttons and ribbons the Japanese companies make.
Superbuzzy sells all of it.
This store is oozing with cuteness.
It has the biggest selection of cute Japanese fabrics anywhere on the west coast!
I've shopped all over Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, and San Francisco so I know what I'm saying here.
This little store in the unassuming beach town of Ventura has them all beat.
A craft kit.
No , I'm not being sponsored by Superbuzzy, although after this post I may have to approach them!
It's just a really cool store and if you live anywhere nearby you have got to come and visit!
They even have my favorite lollipops.
Doesn't all this cute Japanese fabric make you want to make something kawaii?
I love Zakka!
Ther are many sewing notions from Japan and a huge wall of sewing pattern books which I photographed but the picture was too blurry to post.
The day we stopped by they were having a free craft party. my girls were delighted and we had a lot of fun in the back classroom.
These were the make and takes I made, a little pincushion and a needle case.
Here are the deets if you want to stop by :

Tell them you read about it at Sew Country Chick!
