We'd like to welcome you for visiting Japan Handicraft Instructors' Association website, the largest organization of handcraft instructors.

JHIA runs many handcraft divisions including knitting, painting, lace, embroidery, leathercraft, textiles, flower arts, etc. However, the largest of all is our quilting division. Within 12,000 of our members, more than 6,000 are enthusiastic quilters.
