Join sashiko stitching expert Atsushi Futatsuya, a third-generation sashiko stitcher, as he educates us on the history of the traditional sashiko running stitching, used to quilt, mend or simply beautify a piece of woven cloth. 

Stitchers will learn the history behind classical motifs, and to hold the needle to create the running stitch in the traditional way.
This will help stitchers to care for their bodies and expedite their stitching. 

Together we will stitch a beautiful sashiko pattern to be enjoyed for generations to come. Stitchers will also have the opportunity to view and touch many antique fragments and garments filled with sashiko stitching.
