Learn to do the traditional and beautiful Japanese art of Sashiko. This is functional embroidery that started as a practical mending stitch for textiles and has become an art into itself. Learn the running stitch technique and how to use the patterns, threads and supplies used by Japanese stitchers. We will start on a set of coasters that use the basic patterns that can be adapted to decorate garments, quilts, or decorative projects for the home. We will do the stitching in class and Pattie will give you instructions to follow so you can finish the project at home.
