Sashiko Japanese Stitching
Join Instructor Lynn Ursic as she guides you through this intro to Japanese decorative stitching class. She will show you the basic patterns and patchwork of Sashiko stitch work. Traditionally this technique was used to piece together worn tattered fabric and to reinforce clothing. Geometric patterns were among the most popular for stitching designs. Typical designs and patterns made were waves, mountains, bamboo, arrow feathers, pampas grass, overlapping diamonds, linked diamonds, persimmon flowers, and linked hexagons. You will have the opportunity to practice stitches on sample swatches and work on your own stitching project on a garment you bring to class. This class is perfect if you have clothing that you want to patch up in a decorative and interesting way!
- Please bring clean, pre-washed garments or fabric to stitch - jeans, a cotton jacket, or skirt - ideally something you have and want to up-cycle.
- Optional: any special color embroidery or sashiko thread - metallic, neon etc.
Adults, young adults welcome
