Have you ever heard of the Sashiko method of stitching? It is a time-proven art of stitching from Japan that is both simple and elegant, and it can add a touch of class to your next project! Susan Fletcher of Sachiko Stitchers is 'the Sashiko lady' of Canada, and is an authority on the art who loves teaching others. There is a wealth of information on this stitching style on her site, so please explore! More from Susan:
"This is our original basic tutorial for how to do sashiko stitching. Since (this first tutorial) we have produced a number of project specific tutorials which may be a more fun way to learn sashiko stitching. I recommend Dragonfly Over Diamond Waves and/or Dragonfly Above the Earth for absolute beginners, but sashiko is easy so if you don’t like those, try a design you do like!
"This is still a good quick overview ‘how to’ plus it explains our favorite design transfer method."
