Description

Sashiko (pronounced shash-ko) means 'stab stitch' and refers to the small running stitch that is worked to build up distinctive decorative patterns, of which there are hundreds.

The book begins by exploring the origins of the technique to strengthen clothes and to make them warmer.

Getting Started describes everything you need to begin stitching, including sleecting suitable fabrics and threads, marking out patterns on the fabric, as well as the stitching technique itself.

Ten project chapters show how easy it is to use sashiko patterns to make beautiful items for the home.

The sashiko patterns are described in step-by-step detail in the pattern library, showing you exactly how to achieve each individual pattern with ease.

Finally a gallery of work by contemporary Japanese extile artists provides extra inspiration.

Not quite "everything you ever wanted to know about sashiko" but almost. Some history, info about material, techniques, and ideas for projects.
