SASHIKO STITCHING AT POST DETROIT

  • Post Detroit 14500 Kercheval Avenue Detroit, MI, 48215 United States (map)

A traditional technique from Japan, Sashiko means "little stabs," which perfectly describes the distinctive running stitch that defines Sashiko's style.

During this small group workshop, Elizabeth will teach basic decorative Sashiko Stitching Techniques including turns, stitch spacing, tool use, and more. You will learn about the history of the art and how to use Sashiko in both a decorative and functional way.

Everyone will take home their own Sashiko sampler, and a beginner's kit including thimble, thread, and needles to complete the sampler and continue to develop the art of Sashiko embroidery on their own.
