Peggy’s Weaving Tour – Japan Day 1

Every day on my weaving tour of Japan and the Philippines I will repost all of my InstaGram posts here on my blog. I hope you enjoy my adventures.


Another Issey Miyake shop just had his famous pleated thing. This is just one example.

Our glorious treat. They are open until 7:30 which was perfect.

Where we had our treat it was dark when we were there for " dinner".

My big treasure. An old kimono worn as underwear. The patches are the way it was designed originally

A little pile of silk crepe from old kimonos. I will cut them up if I dare to. The end of my first days treasures

I’m leaving in the morning for a trip for a week in Tokyo on the way to a two-week textile tour: The Textile Arts and Traditions of the Philippines, sponsored by the Textile Arts Council of the deYoung Museum in San Francisco. The week in Tokyo my friend Cathy and I will just go to our favorite places, including the antique stores where I found the old books where I’ve gotten pages for my art work. We are going to a special flea market and to our favorite antique textile shops. 
I’ll post on  my Instagram account “peggyoster“, 2 to 4 photos a day (I hope). And my web guy will combine those in a daily post on my website for my almost 500!! (493) subscribers who get email notices of my website posts.
I am eager to see pineapple fiber fabric and I hope I can bring home some. It should be fascinating to see how it is made. We’ll be flying a lot to get to various islands so it will really be interesting to see what “the Philippines” really is like.

A Textile Trip to Morocco and a Solo Show of My New Work

Morocco ArchitectureIn October I will be going to Morocco! In November I will have a one-person show at the Tiburon Library starting with a reception on November 3. That leaves me September to get ready for the show! I’ve been creative all summer and still getting new ideas so I see September will be a busy month. You might not hear much from me. I’ll be sending posts from Morocco but my web guy will be away, too, so my usual travel posts may be delayed.
