Sashiko (sa-she-ko) Embroidery first appeared during Japan's Edo Period (1615-1868) to fill a practical need for mending and strengthening homespun clothing. Eventually it was used to layer fabrics to create warmth, and even used to create a thick and absorbent fabric for fireman's coats which could be soaked in water before carrying out their duties. Our Sashiko Box will give you a great start on this fascinating and creative technique, which is similar to Big Stitch Quilting, and can be very relaxing...and portable.

DETAILS

Sashiko stitches are mostly geometric in design, created by a running stitch, and most recognized by white thread on an indigo background. Common motifs include waves, mountains, bamboo and arrow feathers. Modern-day Sashiko has become an art form, incorporating colored threads, different color backgrounds and applique.

Bundle #1 includes a Coaster Sampler Kit, thread, Sashiko Booklet, Needles, and Scissors.

Bundle #2 includes Bundle #1, plus a Traditional Design Project, add'l threads, and a Project Pouch.

Additional books and supplies available.
