Discover the beauty of traditional Japanese embroidery! The Japanese word sashiko means “little stabs,” referring to the small running stitches used to create intricate patterns. Participants will hand stitch a traditional sashiko pattern of their choice using white thread on indigo blue fabric. All materials are provided. Each participant will receive a mini sashiko kit to use in class and take home, which is included in the materials fee. No sewing experience required - all levels welcome.
