Here is Frances to tell us about her shop:
Miss Matatabi is a little family owned fabric store specializing in modern Japanese fabrics. We have a curated selection of Nani IRO, Kokka, Yuwa, Kei, and admi textiles. We ship worldwide with fast, friendly service and love being able to connect with fellow Japanese fabric fans.
But Frances isn’t just some lady on the internet selling fabric. She is a mom and sewer just like many KCW-ers.  She understands the joys and, at times, frustrations of sewing for your kids. She’s right there with you during KCW: bobbins wound, seam ripper within reach, and making lovely clothes for her daughter.


miss matatabi sews!
See what I mean? Lovely clothes for her daughter! It doesn’t hurt that she has access to an amazing array of fabrics. Her shop is bursting with beautiful textiles: nani iro (of course), melody miller, yuwa and kei (new to me–check out this hearts/cats print), and nesshome (also new to me, but look! awesome graph paper fabric). That isn’t even all of it.

    Oh my goodness what an absolutely beautiful shop! I’ve just gone through and favorited a dozen types of fabric. 🙂 I really love the Nani Iro Kokka Fuccra : rakuen Japanese fabric in white. So beautiful. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. Zanda

    I would love to win this https://www.etsy.com/listing/175956771/kokka-nani-iro-japanese-fabric-birds-eye?ref=shop_home_active_40 or this https://www.etsy.com/listing/172709394/kokka-nani-iro-japanese-fabric-painting?ref=shop_home_active_74

    So many great fabrics to choose from so I will just say anything from the Melody Miller collection, Ellen Luckett Baker collection, or any of the cotton/linen prints lol. This is another awesome giveaway thank you!

    I LOVE the Nani Iro Marche print with the lemons, although I’m not sure the scale would work for a toddler. Maybe for a dress. I also love the stamped ladybugs print, which would be so fun for a girl’s dress or skirt.

  5. Jessi

    I was sucked in! They are all so beautiful and I don’t know how to choose just one. I love the golden dots and the woodblock prints and the enchanting little red riding hood remnant. Maybe if just one, I would choose this woodblock print: Nani Iro Woodblock POCHO Japanese Fabric – paysage – grey green

    Funny, I was browsing Miss Matabi shop just last night! Without looking again I can tell that I would get either nani iro pocho in navy with metallic dots. Second choice would be nani iro kokka fuccra pink flowers on dark blue background. Except I told myself that I have to sew up the nani iro I already have before I buy more 🙂

  7. Judith

    Such a difficult choice–there are so many beautiful fabrics. But, if I had to pick just one, it would be the Nordic Style Leaves from Nesshome Korean Fabric. I’m always drawn to skeletal leaves , and the colour placement makes this fabric really special. Thanks for the chance to win.

    i love, love, love france’s shop.  and she’s such a sweetie!  i love nani iro!  right now i have my eye on the pocho woodblock print in black and mustard as well as the knits.  i also like the color new linen blends and the kitty watercolor prints!  🙂  

  9. Fiona

    Oh, I have so many favorites from her shop, I don’t even have to think about which I would choose! I love the Nani Iro Herringbone knit, especially in the lovely grey. And any of the linens she has look wonderful too!

  10. Angela

    Wow, I’d have a hard time choosing.  I’d love to try the Nani Iro double gauze, but I’m also a total sucker for linen.  I think I might go with the beautiful solid-coloured Yuwa linen.   

  11. Brandi

    I have had a great experience with her. My ordered fabric arrived really fast! She also followed with with a question on etsy quickly too before I ordered. I wore a nani iro top today to our guild meeting and got loads of compliments

  12. Sara

    Miss Matatabi makes it really hard to choose… Such a wonderful selection of fabrics! I am a sucker for Japanese linen or blended cotton-linen. I also love Nani Iro (oh that double gauze…!), but I think I would go for a simple print this time – Nani Iro Kokka Colorful Pocho (I love all colors available)!

  13. marie

    I’ve ordered a couple of time very beautiful fabric at Miss Matatabi and the things I’ve sewn with it have got a lot of positive feedback! I’m a fan of the echino fabric and Melody Miller!

  14. Gudrun Yr

    So many pretty fabrics! if i had to choose one id have to say that the Nani Iro Dear Mother’s Girlhood Japanese Fabric would be perfect for a dress i am planning to sew for my little girl.

  15. Jenn

    I think I have to say the nani Iro Kokka Fucra buttery yellow floral print; it is so gorgeous and I would love to feel that double gauze! I couldn’t stop looking at every one of those Nesshome fabrics though; I like the panels that include multiple coordinating prints and love how they have several images of the fabrics made into different projects on display to showcase them.
