Online Workshop 9/29: Sashiko Mending for Decoration and Denim Repair

at Online (5 - 7 pm)
Learn about this beautiful, ancient Japanese embroidery technique which was originally developed to strengthen quilts and kimonos, and lengthen the life of textiles. Sashiko, which translates to "little stabs", traditionally uses white cotton thread on dark blue indigo dyed fabric.

A simple running stitch is used to create geometric patterns to decorate fabric or reinforce ripped denim. You will learn how to properly execute the sashiko stitch and transfer geometric designs onto indigo-dyed linen.

We will create a sampler made up of different designs including a repetitive wave and other geometric patterns. Once everyone has the technique down, we will discuss how to use sashiko to repair your clothing and thrashed jeans. Students will leave with their sampler and all the tools they need to keep repairing their denim. *Feel free to bring a ripped pair of jeans to repair!

This online workshop takes place on Tuesday, 9/29 5 PM - 7 PM PST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login directions prior to the workshop.

She has been an obsessive stitcher for 25 years and has taught hundreds of people how to stitch through her in-person workshops. We're so excited to finally offer online classes!
