There is no doubt we saw a huge surge of interest in everything Sashiko last year. The meditative slow stitching and geometric designs make this Japanese embroidery technique a wonderful entry into bold handwork. If you're just trying it for the first time we've almost always got a Sashiko class starting this Wednesday January 15th. If you've already dabbled with Sashiko, you may want to try Carolanne's newer workshop Sashiko Pillowcase. We have a huge range of sashiko thread, needles and samplers in stock as well.
