Otherwise, if you do happen to miss out, Kimono House also runs a number of workshops and lessons for Japanese arts and crafts such as shibori indigo dyeing, sashiko (Japanese textile embellishment), patchwork quilting and woodblock printing. Kimono House has a long history of working with Japanese fabrics and crafts, and have been around for about 12 years now, the staff are well versed in any questions you may have and are very knowledgeable when it comes to Japanese craft. So, learning a new craft and gaining a new hobby could also be a great gift idea as well!
