I found a couple of items to help me with kitsuke. I found an obi clip, an elastic koshihimo and a wool one, obijime, irotomesode, and fukusa.
Then I started wondering about volunteering. I signed up, and had my first day last Thursday! Of course, I wore a kimono. Couldn't help it. They took a picture and loaded it on their Facebook. Here's the link to their page.
I will write more later, but that's about it for now.
