Sashiko #3 Grid Stitching with Persimmon Flower and Mountain Forms

As part of the Sashiko experience, we will choose a design, draw out a grid, plan a stitching strategy, and discuss the symbolism of the persimmon and mountain form patterns. We will engage in “stabbing” linen, cotton, or denim sampler squares to create lovely and purposeful hand-stitched textiles. Embellished squares can later become coasters, quilt squares, pockets, or decorative patches.
All Skill Levels Welcome!!!

Previous Sashiko students, please bring your class kits.

Materials Included: Basic Kit included with one pair of Olympus needles, 1 skein of Olympus Sashiko thread, heat erasable fabric markers, mini ruler, pre-gridded practice patch, circle templates, pattern instruction guide, sampler squares in linen, denim, or cotton
