(includes Olympus Sashiko pre-printed template, two Sashiko needles, and one skein of cotton Sashiko embroidery thread)
This introduction to the Japanese embroidery art known as Sashiko is for the absolute beginner. You’ll choose from a range of 12-inch X 12-inch stitching patterns that are pre-printed on cotton fabric and we’ll get you started stitching on it using your choice of variegated colours thread. Sashiko stitching is simple, meditative, and produces amazing graphic results. The skills you learn from this first kit can be applied to a range of decorative projects, including quilting and the visible mending of garments. You’ll also have the chance in this class to try out some of the additional embroidery tools that we carry in the shop.
