Do you have a beloved garment that is a little worse for the wear and could use some sprucing up? Or do you want to add interest to a plain garment? There is no better way to reinforce a worn area or add visual interest than with Japanese Sashiko stitching. A Japanese stitching technique born out of necessity, boro cloths carry the beauty of the many repairs and stitches that embed a unique story into the textile while adding strength, warmth, and longevity to the textile’s life. We will learn about the origins of the technique, the basics of how to Sashiko stitch, and then apply our new knowledge to patch, reinforce and add stitches to a garment you bring to class.

Students should bring:
– a garment in need of mending (something with holes or where the fabric is weakening), or a garment the student would like to decorate through stitching
– a thimble, if the student prefers to use one

Class will be held at our winter location:  Gammelgarden Museum, Scandia
