Introduction to Decorative Sashiko Stitching 

Instructor: Kathleen Goddu

February 22: 10am - 2pm (4 hours)

Sashiko embroidery originated in rural northern Japan during the18th century.  

It was used to strengthen and reinforce clothing and household items to maximize 

their longevity, also known as boro.  Later recognizable white stitching on 

indigo-dyed cloth was developed as a decorative embroidery technique.  

 

In this workshop you will learn how to achieve a uniform running stitch, transfer a pattern 

onto indigo fabric, and how to stitch the pattern using sashiko thread in the 

traditional Japanese manner.  We will discuss how to create your own patterns and 

how you might incorporate this stitching into garments or other functional items.   

 

Materials includes: 

-set of sashiko needles 

-sashiko thread 

-indigo fabric 

-stitch samples
