Join us for an online workshop with artist Sandra Johnson. Hand stitching is a wonderful, meditative practice, and Sandra is a master. Her work is amazing and her optimism and spirit are infectious. This workshop is guaranteed to be packed with fun! For those who have taken the previous stencil workshop with Sandra, we will be using a different stencil for this class.
Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embellishment using a running stitch of heavy white cotton on indigo fabric. During this live, online workshop you will discover the beauty and artistry of sashiko hand stitching.
In this class, Sandra will teach you how to work with stencils to add sashiko stitching to your quilts, clothes, bags, or anything made of fabric! We will supply you with a stencil, marking pencil, fabric, thread and needles, so you'll be ready to dive in and start stitching. Students will learn how to mark their fabric and stitching technique as well as learning about some of the different needles, threads, and thimbles that are available.
