I heard that they used to sell sushi making kits at trader joes, target and ikea but I couldnt seem to find them. I was wondering if anyone either knew a place where i could buy one (i live on long island, ny) but nothing online since i dont have time for it to ship. Or I was looking into buying bamboo place mats from ikea http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80110009 or http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20101734 and i was wondering if either of these would work to roll sushi.


thanks so much!
