    Core & Essence

    The Special Package you purchased is all you need to enjoy the Sashiko: Core & Essence.

    If you choose to receive it to your home, please bring all of the contents inside.


    The following list is recommended tools/items for you to feel more comfortanle in the workshop:

    • A pen & A note pad to take notes.
    • Masking Tape (Small one is fine - I will bring some as well)
    • Bandage to protect the nail from scratching by needles (if you would like to protect the nail).
    • It may a good idea to cut the nail on the dominant hand (the hand with the needle). One can learn Sashiko with long nails, but it may be an obstacles in the first trial.

    *The Workshop Room will have some scissors for us to use.

  • Trunk Sale in Lunch Break

    This is an exclusive deal for only Sashiko Workshop Participants. I will bring as much supplies & items as possible.

    There are a lot of items I would like to introduce to you: who are in Sashiko Joy. However, since I am a single person project, I cannot have a booth as vendor. Instead, MQG kindly allow me to have a quick Trunk Sale during the Lunch break. This trunk sale is only available for the workshop participants.


    The amount of items for sale can be limited because I would like to bring many samples. It would be great if you could take a look what you can expect there & possibly order in advance (so that I can ship it to Atlanta for you).

    At the same time, don't worry too much for the "Sold-Out" items. I learned what is good from the previous QuiltCons. I will have an "order-form" ready and you will get the same deal without any additonal cost to be shipped even after the Quiltcon. The form is ready in Quiltcon room, and you may download it here.

    Synthetic Dye

    Natural Dye Sashiko Thread

    A small tagline

    Color from Nature always surprize us positively. Fabric "breathe", so does thread. We enjoy unique colors from each Natural Dye.


    Keiko often talk to the thread in Dye batch. Enjoy the creation of Sashiko Artisan who needed to dye thread for her "Sashiko".


    *Since all of the threads are hand-dyed, we have very limited inventory. We try our best to re-create the same color. However, please be advised that they are all "One-of-a-kind" Sashiko Thread.
