Sashiko – The Starter Course I
The Enjoyment of Sashiko
Sashiko – 刺し子 (さしこ) – means “little stabs” in the Japanese language. When the needle is “stabbed” in and out of the fabric, it creates running stitches, which defines the technique style.
I discovered the beautiful stitching technique when I lived in Tokyo. In my neighborhood there was a cute hobby shop with all kind of crafts within knitting and needling. And there was also something called Sashiko. I didn’t know what Sashiko was at that time. However, I was so curious. I bought a needle set, Sashiko thread, and printed fabric, and started to learn at home.
After I made several handkerchiefs with Sashiko embroidery, I fell in love with the technique.
I realized how fun, and relaxing it was to do Sashiko at home. After dinner, I always enjoyed doing Sashiko with a cup of tea or coffee.
Do you also like to learn the Japanese stitching technique?
If you like to feel relaxed at home, have fun and doing something creative with your hands, I’m sure you will enjoy Sashiko too!
Therefore, I have created an introduction class for you.
