Sashiko

SashikoSashiko is a decorative Japanese sewing stitch which can be used to embellish all sorts of fabrics. There are traditions behind it and a heritage which you can discover. Beth had taken a day class in it at the weekend and was so full of enthusiasm when she came to the group on Monday.

SashikoLearning  Sashiko had given her skills she wanted to have but had also opened up her thinking as to how she could use it in her own projects. She said it was worth doing the class because YouTube hadn’t quite given her all the knowledge she needed to be able to do this well. She brought along the pieces she had made at the class and then a basket full of interesting goodies for us to look at and peruse. The more skills you have the more you can create. Sharing ideas across cultures is proving to be a very fertile ground for moving us on with our ideas and projects.
