How to Sashiko – Announcement

*Atsushi Futatsuya will be in charge of Sashiko Tutorials in English.

 

After almost 2 years of keeping a distance from Sashiko , I decided to start enjoying Sashiko again. My mother, Keiko Futatsuya, established her own brand, Sashi.Co. She also started providing the Sashiko lecture and workshop in Japan.

With collaborating her knowledge and skill, I will make brief sashiko tutorial online for free. You can find some Sashiko tutorials from Internet and/or books, you can find the “Sashi.Co technique” from this website. (I was calling my technique as Hida technique before.)

 

Sashiko Tutorial

This is still an announcement. I am preparing the video, so you can actually see the Sashiko stitching.

 

Preparation to start

  • Sashiko Thread (We recommend to use Sashiko thread instead of regular embroidery thread)
  • Sashiko Needle (Sashiko needle need to be long enough to have several stitches at once)
  • Sashiko Thimble (It has to be palm thimble)

 

Here are screenshots from video I am working on to edit.
