And We Have a Winner!

Thank you, thank you so much to everyone for your amazing support and advice for the Tokyo Fabric (and Craft) Lovers' Guide! It blew me away and there were so many great ideas. So many in fact, I think I have a series of books to work on now!

I'm off to Tokyo on Wednesday and this time will be there for five days. I'll spend the first couple of days on my own and then hubby will join me to check out some places and enjoy the remainder of our holidays.

One place I'm really excited about visiting this time is the Shinzi Katoh shop. I just melt when looking at his designs. I think I may have to give my credit card to hubby to mind that day.

Anyway... what I'm sure you really want to know is... who won the giveaway?!? Well, out of the 159 comments there were a couple that didn't give any advice, so in fairness to all the people that really put so much effort into their answer, I didn't include them, so that left me with 153 entries and the winner was...

.. LeilandBen! LeilandBen said;

Great idea! I would love to see little photos of each shop, either from the outside or the inside. I'd also love to have links to any stores that sell online as I don't think I'll be making it to Tokyo anytime soon.

It seems I can't actually contact LeilandBen through her blog as there are no posts and no contact details, so LeilandBen, please contact me with your details by the 9th September. If I haven't heard from her (assuming it is Leila and not Ben who entered), I will draw another winner.

Once again, thank you so much to everyone who gave me such wonderful, helpful, creative, insightful advice!
