Sashiko is a hand-sewing technique that originated in ancient Japan. In Japanese, its name means “little stabs,” which references the simple running stitch that makes up the geometric patterns. Sashiko napkins have been one of the most common forms of Japanese craft: stitching elaborate patterns on daily-use kitchen cloths. The simple running stitch patterns not only make the fabric beautiful and special, but also makes them more durable. People used them for cooking first, then wiping a dining table, then in the end, for cleaning the entire house.
No experience is necessary to give this technique a try! Students will learn to execute the pattern of their choosing and also how to stitch it up once the design is completed. Join us for a casual and relaxing evening and learn something new. Your choice of sampler, embroidery floss and needles are all included in the workshop fee. Tea will be served while we stitch. Please arrive a few minutes early to choose your sampler and thread color.
