I lived in Toronto,Canada from 1976 to 1983.
One day,I found a beautiful mushiroom bell pull
in a library showcase. Icould not guess what
it was made of|---or even how it was made. I
looked very complicated and difficult,somehow,
but I knew I wanted to learn how to make one.
I soon mooved to Tokyo where I had grown up.
As soon as I settled down,I exhibited my several
works in a bank lobby. Then I started my first
rug hooking class with 17 ladies,in Septmber 1985
I 'v been showing the Japanese who had never
seen what a hooking truely is, and how wonderful
it is to make our own works by our own hands,
sharing the joys and friendships with many people.
