Sashiko for Hand Quilting
3-Hour Workshop
4 pm - 7 pm EDT, Friday, November 4

Sashiko, the mending, patching, beautifying, and reinforcing handwork technique is quickly becoming a familiar staple in the surface design and textile design world. Creative quilters, like yourselves, are eager to adapt this stunning handwork to their own projects… and we don’t blame y’all one bit! These stunning stitch designs can be used for more than visible mending… they are one of the original forms of hand quilting. In this class, we’ll show you how to use the sashiko needle, thimble, and thread to create gorgeous moyouzashi sashiko patterns on your quilts. No hoops or stretchers are needed! To show y’all how to use this style of sashiko for your own projects, we’re going to use the sashiko pattern “Linked 7 Treasures” - a stitch pattern familiar to most hand and machine quilters by a different name - and learn how to draw and stitch on a sample quilt sandwich.

Don’t worry if you’ve never made one stitch of hand quilting. We’re going to take you step-by-step through the entire process; drawing a balanced pattern to follow, and handling these unique tools (called unshin). Learn to use this mindful stitching technique to deepen your relationship with your craft and maybe you’ll fall in love with sashiko like we did.
