    Please check the description below!

  • Sashiko Kit Package

    We do not have an instruction manual on "How to" on purpose.

    I want you to find your own Sashiko.

    Our Sashiko (DIY) Kit doesn't include an instruction manuals on how you should stitch. In today's market, almost "all" of Sashiko kit includes a manual with "correct" answers. I do not want to define the answer for you.

     

    Instead, I offer a lot of information on Youtube videos. Please watch them and try to learn & find your own Sashiko. I am always here to support - but I do not spoon-feed someone and make them feel that they "master" the culture. I am still learning as well.

     

    At the same time, I understand this type of "Freedom" isn't so kind in our society today. For those who have no idea where to start, please try to learn "How to Draw the Asano-ha pattern on fabric" and then try to watch me stitching the exact same pattern on the Live Streaming.

    A list of Kit available as of 2021

    • Small Asanoha Sashiko Practice Fabric
    • Small Shippou Sashiko Practice Fabric 
    • Keiko's Design Sashiko Practice Fabric & Package (19)
    • Keiko's Design Sashiko Practice Fabric & Package (20)

    Need More Assistance in Learning Sashiko?

    We offer the Sashiko Online Class (or occassional In-person Workshop) to assist your learning in Sashiko. In the Online Class, you will learn the essence of our Sashiko stitching. Your questions will be answered in the videos as well as the Live Session where you will meet Atsushi via Zoom.

     

    It would be great if you could consider taking it.

     

    *If you purchased a Sashiko Kit Package with Thimble & Needle, you should find a card with code pre-printed. It is a coupon of the $13.50 off with accepting to deduct the set of needles & thimble from your Sashiko Class Materials (since you have them already). It is good to have several pairs, but I also have reasons for not offering the 2nd package automatically.

  • Selection of More Tutorial Videos

    It is my goal to share the Sashiko we have been practicing: so I offer as much as I can.

  • Sashiko is more than Stitching

    I would like to share the stories about Japanese Sashiko, so I call @SashikoStory.
