Natsu Matsuri 2017 @Hana Japan, Newburyport

今年もハナジャパンの夏祭りに参加してきました。抜けるような青空のお祭り日和。きっとミスター高橋がお天気になるよう天国から見守ってくださっているのだと思います。
We went to Hana Japan to attend the annual summer festival this year again. It was a perfect gorgeous day for such a festival. I’m sure the deceased Mr. Takahashi brought us this beautiful blue sky from the heaven.

やっと一枚になった7枚目のキルトを持って行って、皆さんに見て頂きました。まだ裏地を張っていなかったので、チクチクをしてもらえなかったのが残念でしたが、また新しい出会いもあり、メンバーの高校生や大学生のお子さんたちにも協力してもらい、大いに盛り上がりました!いつも美味しいお弁当をメンバー全員に提供してくださり、てわっさに寄付まで頂き、ハナジャパンさんの応援がありがたいです。さあ、チクチクしますよ〜!

We were able to show our Number seven quilt which was finally assembled into one piece, however, it doesn’t have a backing yet, so it was unfortunate that we couldn’t start doing chick-chiku yet that day.
We have met some Japanese people and one of our members brought her son who is a high school student and another came with her daughter who is a college student. Filled with their young energy, it was a huge success.
Hana Japan always provided a delicious lunch box for all our members and even gave us a donation! We’re truly thankful for their continued support for Tewassa.
Let’s start chiku-chiku!
