1pm – 4:30pm

$70+hst (includes all materials)

Create a slow-stitch sampler to hang on your wall using plant-dyed fabrics and sashiko (Japanese embroidery) thread! We will start with an indigo-dyed 18” X 18” piece of organic cotton fabric as our canvas, sewing on pre-dyed squares and rectangles of linen, cotton or hemp in layered collage format. This project offers the opportunity to practice various traditional sashiko stitches along with free-stitching techniques. (It is recommended that students have at least basic hand-stitching skills.) The finished product makes a unique addition to your home decor! Includes all materials (sashiko needle and thread, hand-dyed backing fabric and patches).
