Sashiko #2 Slow Flow Sashiko with Waves and Treasures

Saturday 1/22, 1-4PM

The slow flowing curves of Seigha (Ocean Waves) and Shippo Tsunagi (Seven Linked Treasures) will be our focus in this Sashiko Japanese Embroidery workshop. We will layout our grids, draw, and stitch circular patterns referencing the time-honored, Japanese needlework traditions or experimenting with circles and curves as our creativity desires. The pattern variations implementing full and partial arcs, or linked and stacked semi-circles is endless.

Previous Sashiko students, please bring your class kit.
