    Preparation for the Workshop

    Important information to maximize the experience

    What to bring for the Sashiko Workshop?

    All of the necessary tools & supplies will be prepared in the required package. Most of the items are exclusively prepared for this workshop, so please purchase the package to join the Sashiko workshop above.

     

    Besides the unique tools & supplies package you would purchase from us, it may be a good idea to have several general sewing tools. Please bring the tools below for the better experience (not required, but recommended). The list of tools are NOT included to the material package you purchase.

     

    *I strongly recommend bringing the item colored with Orange in supplies section.

     

    Tools:

    *We do not use them all the time, so if the Workshop Studio has some, you may be able to use theirs instead of bringing your own to the workshop. However, it is recommended to bring them to make the workshop more comfortable.

    • Ruler (s)
    • Scissors (Fabric Scissors will be better)
    • Notepad & something to write with
    • Scotch Tape / Masking Tape
    • Pincushion / Needle Rest
    • 1 or 2 Crayola Washable Marker (ideally fine top) with Dark Colors. (Sample Link)
    • A ballpoint pen (cheap one is fine) (Sample Link).
    • nailclipper (for the purpose of preparation below).
    • Regular Sewing set
      • Sewing needles / dressmaker pins (to hold fabrics)
      • Sewing thread
      • Pins
    • Bandage or masking tape to protect the finger’s nail - only if you would like to protect the nail (the detail is listed in the preparation below).

     

    Supplies:

    • One (or more) Cotton Garment (such as denim pants or shirt) with mending or stitching needs. A large hole may be too much to complete within the workshop. A hole of about 2~3 inch diameter would be the ideal for patching. The Garment doesn’t have to have holes. I will explain how to apply Sashiko to mending/repairing. Stretchy fabric including stretch denim and T-shirt are not ideal. For the details of what is best to bring, please check here → (The Article of “What is the suitable fabric for mending & stitching on").
    • You may also bring any garments you would like to have Sashiko stitches on, mainly for Day-2. Several garments/options would be great for mending & for actual Sashiko stitching. Stretchy fabric (stretch denim), hard fabric (raw denim or canvas), and other non-cotton fabric are not recommended to practice Sashiko for the first time.
    • Also any fabrics you would like to use for mending (A piece of fabric for mending will be provided, but you can use your favorite one).
    • Any (Sashiko) threads, needles, thimbles and fabrics that they would like to confirm how to use (not required).
    • Any books they would like to share (I do not have recommendations for books in English, though).

     

    Preparation: 

    After completing the purchase of the necessary package, please read below to prepare if necessary.

    • It may be a good idea to cut the nail on the dominant hand (the hand with the needle). One can learn Sashiko with long fingernails, but it may be an obstacle in the first process of learning.
    • In the process of learning the "Unshin - Running Stitch", I "may" ask you to use your nail to control the needle. It "could" scratch your nail a bit. If you would like to protect your nails, please bring bandages or thick tape, or even prepare a fake fingernail for this purpose. You may not need this process at all. I just need to be as detailed as I can.
