Hi I'm Natalie, and I've been working in the fashion industry for about 5 years and have been an expat for longer! I love all things fashion and sewing and I can't wait to unload my knowledge onto you.
I would love to take travelers around Nippori, and explore Tokyo's most frequented place for buying fabric and harbedashery items.

You can also teach me about sewing tips and tricks from your country too!
