Participants will learn the basic stitches and patterns of Sashiko stitching, along with a brief history behind Sashiko stitching and its origins as a decorative utilitarian stitch.

After learning the basic rules of Sashiko, participants will then be encouraged to bend those rules and develop their own stitching voice!

Students are provided with naturally dyed fabric for stitching on, along with Sashiko thread and other naturally dyed thread for stitching. They will leave with at least 4 stitched swatches.

This workshop is open to all experience levels and is geared towards beginners.

Students should bring: sashiko

  • The only requirement is thread snips/small scissors
  • Participants are encouraged to bring a textile, home good or article of clothing that could use some hand-stitched embellishment. Denim clothing, linen accessories and any medium-weight homegoods are perfect for this.
  • If students have the need, a magnifier or lamp should be brought.
