HATCH: Intro to Sashiko *Zoom Demo*

Wednesday, August 19, 2020

This introduction to sashiko - Japanese running stitch embroidery - introduces you to materials, designs, some methods of transferring designs to fabric, and the basics of sashiko stitching. The word sashiko means “little stabs” which describes the simple running stitch used to create patterned backgrounds and motifs. Sashiko designs can be straight geometric grids or complex interlacing patterns including curves and more complex motifs.
