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 guaranteed to be packed with fun!
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.
Starting with a pre-printed sashiko fabric, students will work on stitching technique as well as learning about the different needles, threads, and thimbles that are available. You will also learn how to use sashiko stitching to create beautiful, one of a kind, innovative quilts, clothing, and DIY items.
This workshop will be recorded and will be made available to class participants for 2 weeks following the lesson.
