Sashiko has been used for hundreds of years in Japan to strengthen, repair, and decorate their clothing and covers. This running embroidery stitch may be used to create many different patterns and may be used to layer fabrics.
You will learn the sashiko stitch using a marked strip of fabric provided. You will stitch on a prewashed, marked fabric that is provided in the traditional Plover (chidori tsunami) design. You will learn to mark the grid and stitch the Persimmon Flower (kaki no hana) design. You may trace the other patterns provided on to fabrics you bring. Suggest that they be cut approximately 9" x 9". Please see my sashiko album on my website for some possibilities.
