About the Event
Sashiko ( 'little stabs') is a type of traditional Japanese embroidery or stitching used for the decorative and/or functional reinforcement of cloth and clothing. Owing to the relatively cheap nature of white cotton thread and the abundant nature of cheap, indigo-dyed blue cloth in historical Japan, sashiko has a distinctive appearance of white-on-blue embroidery, though some decorative pieces may also use red thread.
In this class you will be provided with a kit to create your own project. Donna Joy is a long-time member of the Artist Marketplace who has worked in many different fiber modes.
