An Introduction to Sashiko Embroidery

By April 10, 2019 April 16th, 2019 No Comments

Saturday May 4th

10:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Taught by Casey York


Sashiko embroidery originated in Japanese textile arts, in which decorative straight stitch patterns were used to mend and reinforce homespun fabrics. Despite its traditional roots, the abstract motifs typical of this meditative hand-stitching technique lend themselves perfectly to modern design. In this workshop, Casey will introduce sashiko materials and the basic stitch as you begin to embellish the pre-printed fabric square. All materials and supplies are provided, and you’ll go home with your project, sashiko needle and thread. Since this is a longer workshop, Café Osage will provide baked goods for a snack. Workshop is limited to 10 participants. Call 314-454-6868 to reserve your spot!
