Sashiko is an ancient Japanese mending technique combining quilting and darning. We’ll use it to make a square in a traditional design that you can incorporate into a crazy quilt, make into a pouch, appliqué onto a bag or garment, frame or do anything else you choose with. We’ll use a few nontraditional techniques to adapt our work to a Canadian context.
List of materials for participants to bring: scissors, small (no more than 5 inches or 12 cm) embroidery hoop or Q-snap frame
