Introduction to Sashiko
Spend a morning “slow stitching” as you learn the fundamentals of Sashiko - the Japanese art of straight stitch embroidery. Historically, sashiko stitching was used to mend and add durability to indigo clothing worn by farmers and fisherman in rural Japan. The patterns are simple and graphic, and packed with meaning. You will choose four patterns from a variety offered, and begin your 16”x16” sampler on linen/cotton woven fabric (a variety of color ways will be offered). Be careful - you may get addicted to this relaxing, rewarding stitch! It can be personalized and incorporated into quilting in so many ways.
Instructor Cynthia Nanto studied sashiko for two years in Japan.
