Personal note: Oh my gosh! I haven’t done a blog post since June and here it is almost the end of August! In my defense I was having some health related issues all through July. Everything is good now, I got some really positive news from my doctor so my outlook is much brighter now! Also, I reconnected with an old friend from high school and we’ve been chatting a lot in my spare time, so sorry for neglecting my kimono blog for almost 2 months! I do have quite a few updates.
On July 20th Quat and I did a presentation for Japan-America Society Of Central Ohio. Please visit their website to check them out. http://www.jas-co.org. This was the group we got to network with a bit during the JSO festival this year. We were invited to do a short yukata dressing demonstration. The theme of the event was Tanabata festival and there were presentations on the festival, ike-bana, Japanese traditional dance, and taiko drumming as well. It was a nice afternoon of cultural education and our Columbus Kimono group was happy to be involved.
