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 embroidery 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 sampler, choice of embroidery floss and needles are all included in the workshop fee. Students will receive 10% off any additional Sashiko supplies after the workshop.

This workshop will be held remotely via Zoom. Students will be contacted to choose a sampler and embroidery floss from our in stock selection after registering. Supplies for the class will be available for curbside pick-up for local students. If you are not local, please choose the shipping option and we will contact you to get your materials shipped to you in time for the workshop. We offer free local delivery within 3 miles of our shop on Wednesdays, so if this applies to you, please choose the non-shipping option. Non-local students must register prior to Sunday, November 29th to guarantee on-time arrival of materials.
