About the Event

Sashiko : Advanced (Day 2)

Despite its seeming simplicity, Sashiko embroidery can be deceptively complex.

Once you have mastered running stitch, and wrapped your head around the basics of sewing the sashiko pattern, we will explore Hitomezashi designs. Worked on a grid of straight lines, we begin with the basics of yokogushi (horizontal rows) then move into more complex geometric designs: rice stitch, coin stitch, persimmon flower stitch and threaded stitched patterns. The end result is a sampler of rich designs, the knowledge of which can be applied to mend or embellish clothes.

$200 for the two day workshop or $100 per day. + HST.

Included in the price: fabric, sashiko threads and needles, fabric marking pens, contained within a cloth bag.

 Workshop runs from 10:30 to 4 with a lunch break
