profile Minami Ishibashi first joined 'Fushiginoiroito' as an ordinary member, but later on she gave lectures to the rest of the group on how to photograph textile works. She has an established career as a Textile Artist and has been on the teaching staff at the Nihon Vogue School. In addition she also runs her own course, called 'Tezawarioamu', at the Tokyo Textile Institute, which explores the use of texture in knitting. 

Her involvement with Fushiginoiroito has benefited us in many ways, and she generously shared her experience and knowledge of the Arts and Crafts with the other members.
