Come discover the time-honored Japanese sashiko technique for mending and revitalizing damaged textiles!

Sashiko, which translates as “little stabs,” is a traditional Japanese hand-sewing technique that dates back centuries. More than just a method of mending and strengthening the fabric, in modern times, it also reflects the Japanese idea of “mottainai,” which means waste not, want not.

In this beginner’s workshop, explore a range of sashiko and hand-sewing methods. Learn how to apply patches in a unique way, weave both strengthening and decorative sashiko stitches into your fabric, and master efficient hand-sewing using the sashiko approach. After this workshop, you’ll be equipped with the skills to breathe new life into well-loved garments, giving them a distinct flair!
