Description

The sashiko stitch was originally used to mend and reinforce cloth but has evolved into a decorative stitching technique. Sashiko has become popular because of its elegant, bold and meditative quality, plus it is easy to do
The techniques that will be covered for sashiko includes how to transfer designs onto the fabric, how to achieve the “grain of rice” stitches following the simple principles. (Karakusa pattern)
