Sashiko is a style of Japanese Folk Embroidery. It was originally used to darn or repair worn areas of garments.  Sashiko means “little stabs” and refers to the small running stitches used in this form of needlework.  Sashiko designs are geometric, and inspired by nature, clouds, rippling water, flowers, leaves and animals.

Come learn this form of embroidery.  There are lots of pre-printed patterns to choose from and we just received the Cosmo “Sashiko” threads in 40 different colors.

Supplies needed:  Cosmo Sashiko thread or Cosmo Embroidery thread or size 12 pearl cotton, pre-printed design and a package of Milliner needles.  You will also need a small pair of nippers or scissors.
