Sashiko Stitching Workshop in 2017
Are you interested in Sashiko? Would you like to get a hand-on workshop to learn what Sashiko is?
We are very happy to announce that we can continue to offer the Sashiko Stitching Workshop in 2017. Thanks to all the participants in the workshops and its feedback, Atsushi will be back to NYC / Brooklyn.

What you can expect in Sashiko Workshop
Sashiko Stitching Workshop comes with all the materials and supply you need to start Sashiko stitching (embroidery). No experience in stitching is required. Participants can bring own sewing tools (such as needles and thimbles), but it is neither requirement for this workshop.
In the workshop, we provide
- Indigo Fabric with “Asano-Ha(麻の葉)” pattern pre-printed on.
- Large size and good amount of fabric to make a Tote-bag, a placemat, or a table runner. (Including interlining)
- Sashiko Thread (While / #12)
- Needles and Thimble for Sashiko
*Please find a blog entry about Asano-Ha Pattern (Coming Soon).
Atsushi share his Sashiko experience and technique on Youtube.
Sashiko Stitching Workshop will cover the similar materials, and hands-on teaching to you until you get the way we do Sashiko. It is a bit challenging to share everything on Youtube. Although I will enrich our Youtube tutorial, this workshop will improve your Sashiko techniques. For those who have never learned Sashiko before, this will be an eye-opening experience. (We use needle and thimble very uniquely comparing to Western Style Embroidery or Stitching)
So far, this workshop received 5-star rating (out of 5) from every single participants. I am very happy that what I can offer is what people are longing for to receive.

Futatsuya gives three-hour hands-on session of basic sashiko technique to stitch traditional “asanoha” (hemp leaf) pattern. You will go home with a fabric large enough to make a tote bag, placemat, patchworking, or your own project after the workshop. The workshop comes with a complete kit of sashiko needles, a sashiko thimble, a skein of white sashiko thread, and fabric with asano-ha patterns printed on. You do not need to bring any tools, but you are also welcome to bring you own sewing tools.
