Sashiko Stitching workshop at the Genesee Valley Quilt Club

Sashiko Stitching: a form of embroidery originating in Japan. The term means “little stabs”: a running stitch using special white thread worked on an indigo background. Sashiko stitching creates striking designs that can vary from geometric patterns, to family crests or stylized motifs from nature like flowers or animals.
    In this workshop, learn the basic Sashiko techniques, using a printed sashiko design on indigo fabric. With the embroidered design, make a pillow, table runner, place mat or a small wall hanging, Complete your project with supplied indigo fabric or additional fabric you bring to class. If making a pillow, bring pillow form.

    The workshop will be part of the September 2016 program of the Genesee Valley Quilt Club. To find out about the organization and its programs, please check out the organization's web site,
