Sashiko Exhibition Tokyo 2018

Sashiko Exhibition Tokyo 2018 | In Kugayama, Japan

We are happy to announce the Sashiko Exhibition Tokyo 2018 with Keiko Futatsuya (Sashi.Co) and Otsuchi Sashiko Project. This is their 2nd Sashiko Exhibition in 2018, followed by the exhibition in Gifu. They will have numbers of Sashiko Jackets, Sashiko Bags, and Natural Dye Sashiko Thread for purchase. If you happen to be in Japan near Tokyo Area, please enjoy our authentic Sashiko works!

 

This is our first year to offer Sashiko exhibition. Following after the Sashiko Exhibition Tokyo 2018, Keiko and I sincerely hope that we can visit other cities to have our Sashiko exhibition to share what we love, what we are proud of, and what we would like to share.

 

The Detail of Sashiko Exhibition Tokyo 2018

 

Date: May 8th to May 12th in 2018

[5/8 (Tuesday) to 5/12 (Saturday) in 2018]

 

Location: GALLERY AI in Kugayama, Tokyo.

Please contact me if you would be able to visit the gallery. I am happy to share the exact location. Everything displayed in the exhibition is subject to purchase. We want a customer to use (wear, carry, display in any daily usage) the Sashiko items, and Sashiko items become more beautiful by being used in the daily life.

 

Some Photos of Sashiko Items

These are only a few samples of what Keiko & Otsuchi Sashiko will display. You may be able to touch the most of our Sashiko Items. For the jacket, you should try it on if you are interested. Again, Sashiko is a form of very “ordinary” stitching developed in Japan. We do not want to make it so fancy, we just would like to enjoy the power of authentic Sashiko.

 

Sashiko Exhibition Tokyo 2018 Jacket.
This is one of the most popular Sashiko Jackets/Ponchos in Keiko’s Collection. We, Keiko, myself, and Otsuchi Sashiko, are the group of Sashiko Professionals. I hope visiters can have a chance to enjoy the master pieces.

 

Sashiko Exhibition Tokyo 2018 Jacket 2
Not only the traditional Sashiko, Keiko will display some of her modern Sashiko Jacket. This jacket is the collaboration of Katazome vintage Fabric with her “free-style” Sashiko Stitching.

 

 

 

Sashiko Exhibition Tokyo 2018 Keiko's Jacket
Keiko will be in Tokyo on 5/7, with wearing something very contemporary & Sashiko Stitches. This best is with Denim fabric and some Sashiko Stitching. Pretty Fashionable, I think.

 

 

I will write a report of two beautiful Sashiko Exhibitions in 2018 1st half. The Sashiko Exhibition Tokyo 2018 will be something we will be something very remarkable. Keiko is very nervous to show up as Sashiko artist in front of visitors since this is her first time! (She was not allowed to mention her name before 2014.) Exciting!!

 

 

 

 

Boro Inspired Sashiko Patchwork Workshop Happy

Boro Inspired Sashiko Patchwork Workshop | May 3rd

May 3rd, 2018. This day became another great milestone on our Sashiko Journey, to learn what we can provide throughout our Sashiko experience. We had a group of Stitchers from Thailand to have Keiko’s Boro Inspired Sashiko Patchwork workshop in her private space.

I started a Sashiko workshop in late 2016 in the USA. Ever since I started introducing the Sashiko Workshops in English, many people asked me if they can take the Sashiko Workshop when they travel to Japan. Some inquires got fade out, some couldn’t fit their schedule, and some could make it happen with their passion & luck. Some people even travel for 5 hours only to take Keiko’s workshop.

It is our surprise, hand big honor to be respected this amount.

 

Regardless of my belief in Keiko’s ability and talent, I always worried (and still worry) about the language barrier. However, every time Keiko has a workshop, the happy faces surprised me that my worry regarding language isn’t the big obstacle in sharing Sashiko stitching.

 

Here, with participants’ permission, let me share happy faces with their brilliant result of a day-long workshop for Boro-Inspired Sashiko Patchwork Workshop.

 

Happy Faces with their Beautiful Sashiko

Thank you very much for sharing these beautiful photos. The Boro inspired fabric is done by each participant. They are all unique and so beautiful.

The detail of Boro Inspired Sashiko Patchwork Workshop

 

In Japan, we do not offer the Boro & Sashiko workshop regularly. The workshops are only available by privately arranged and appointed. Please read the article about “Customize Sashiko Workshop in Japan” and contact me for setting up the workshop to meet your preference & expectation.

 

This workshop was a whole day workshop, starting at 9 until the dinner time. The participants will finish their projects to make it a Tote-bag. We provide enough materials to do so. The result is simply amazing, and we are so glad to have many happy faces. The contents of Sashiko related workshops are independently different. It means that I will modify the content of workshop by hearing your preferences and experience.

When you are serious, please feel free to contact Atsushi for the arrangement.

 

Boro Inspired Sashiko Patchwork Workshop All

 

 

Please be advised for maximizing the workshop experience here.

Keiko will show you how to use thimble, needle, and do Sashiko workshop. However, there is a slight possibility that the language barrier causes the frustration. I will do everything I can do to follow up, but please consider to take Atsushi’s Sashiko Workshops in advance, if possible. You do not need to know how to use a needle and thimble in our Sashiko method. However, we strongly recommend you having the basic needlework skill.

 

Boro and Sashiko. Share the fun and beauty

 

This Boro Inspired Sashiko Patchwork Workshop taught me, again, how beautiful the Sashiko and Boro piece can be. 7 participants made 7 completely unique Boro-inspired patchworks. All of them are so beautiful and precious.

It is all about preferences. Not being right or wrong.

When we stop judging others, and most importantly ourselves, we can enjoy our life more and more.

 

This is the Boro and Sashiko we love.

A Sashiko Workshop possibility in near future

I feel like the Sashiko is getting popular, and I would love to share my expertise as often as possible, Here are the possibilities of our Sashiko Workshops, including (Basic & Core) and (Intermediate & Hitomezashi). We are still working on the planning phase. However, if you could tell me that you are interested in taking the workshop with us, it will greatly help us to plan.

After Sashiko Workshop Spring 2018

 

I will be quite busy in May and the rest of April.

My goal during this time is to offer the Online Sashiko Workshop. I will contact the person based on the waiting list, one by one, to invite you to the online workshop. It is still in developmental phase, but I am willing to try to share (I have tried some online Sashiko workshop in Japanese – my native language.) If you are interested in an online Sashiko workshop, you may also contact me to let me add you to the waiting list.

 

 

 

Sashiko Workshop Spring 2018

Sashiko Workshop Spring 2018 | Sashiko Stitching!

I am so happy to announce that I offer another Sashiko Workshops in New York City, Manhattan Tribeca Neighboorhood. If you are interested, please register yourself on the detail information page here | Sashiko Workshop Spring 2018 here.

 

 

The best way to start & review Sashiko

 

Sashiko Workshop Spring 2018 _ Cover 1

 

There are several Sashiko books and tutorials available in the market. I also offer some online tutorials on our Youtube Channel.

However, the best way to start and review Sashiko is to see how the Sashiko (repair) artist do Sashiko every day. Sashiko was too ordinary for Japanese people to establish the structure. Therefore, we can see many types of Sashiko from many communities in Japan. The common concept is that the Japanese developed Sashiko to repair, strength, mend, and decorate fabric with appreciation.

 

Since there is no such a thing as “Right” and “Wrong” in Sashiko, it can be confusing to learn.

Atsushi offers what is the best way to keep enjoying Sashiko in terms of its technique, supplies, and tips to increase “enjoyment” in your Sashiko. Unless you are absolutely 100% confident in using Sashiko needle & thimble, the workshop will be a great opportunity to start & review Sashiko.

On our Youtube Channel, you can see how we use the Sashiko Needle & Thimble.

 

 

Sashiko Workshop Spring 2018 | Next is Summer 2018

 

Sashiko Workshop Spring 2018

 

My schedule for May and June is pretty packed already.

The possible Sashiko Workshop in NYC is at the end of July or in August. Since I do not live in NYC, I can offer the workshops only a few times a year. I offer an option to have the private workshop, but joining the workshops in NYC will be the easiest and cheapest option among my offers.

 

It will be nice Spring day (hopefully) in NYC.

If it is a sunny day, stitching time on the balcony may be available. The host of the workshop may be able to offer this beautiful surprise. Please do not miss this great opportunity to enjoy Sashiko Stitching with Atsushi.

 

Please be noted that your registration is required to attend the workshop.

Thank you & I am looking forward to meeting you there.

At the same time, depending on the condition, I can arrange a private Sashiko workshop for your quilting guild, patchwork community, and friends groups. Since I offer the Private Sashiko Workshop for you and your group, I can customize the contents of the workshop with communication to your needs.

Private Sashiko Workshop Bags

 

If you are a single member or a small group.

 

I understand there are many people who are interested in taking my Sashiko workshops, but not in a group of quilting and patchworking to have me at your place. There are a few things you can do to take my Sashiko workshop with reasonable price.

1. Make a plan to visit where Atsushi lives | Lewisburg, PA 17837

I live in the central part of Pensylvania. If you can make a visit to the city of Lewisburg, I can arrange the private Sashiko workshop for you with the price of $135 ~ $250 per person including the materials, depending on your request. The extra fee may apply for the place to offer the workshop. I do not mind offering the Sashiko workshop in your hotel room if you plan to stay overnight. I am open to any suggestion & possibility.

2. Join a local needlework group and propose the idea of having me there.

I can offer the Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Core and Basic) regularly in TriBeCa, hugely thanks to my supporters. Please consider to join the local needlework, patchwork, quilting or hand-crafting group and guild and propose them to have me in your city. If your group can be a good supporter of my activity, then I can offer the multiple Sashiko Workshops in your city like I do in Tribeca, NYC.

3. Take the Online Workshop

With many requests from all over the world, I am developing the Online-Sashiko Workshop.

It is very challenging since my workshop style includes actual re-positioning your hands by holding yours. I am a bit uneasy if I can deliver the same quality workshop to the participants over the web. I will update the information once it is ready to offer.

 

Please contact me when you are ready to have me

Private Sashiko Workshop Pin CUSHION

 

I sincerely appreciate the increase of interest in Sashiko Stitching and my Sashiko Workshop.

I used to say, “please feel free to contact me with any small questions!” Although I feel the same, the increase of contacts which ended up with not receiving the reply made me write this. Please contact me when you are ready to have me.

 

It is perfectly fine if the workshop doesn’t work out because of a scheduling conflict. I understand that.

However, not getting a reply after scheduling myself causes troubles and it may negatively affect the possibility of keep offering the workshop. I usually make a reply within a day. Please try to be on the track if you decided to contact me.

 

I have had 3 cases without ANY replies within a week… I am sorry for whining. 

 

 

 

Thank you for your understanding & I am looking forward to offering the “100% satisfaction received” Sashiko Workshop.

 

Sashiko Exhibition

Sashiko Exhibition with Otsuchi | The Power of Sashiko

The big earthquake hit Northeast Japan, almost 7 years ago, a cold day in March. In a process of recovering from this tragedy, Sashiko helped a group of people in small town, Otsuchi. We are honored to announce that the Otsuchi recovery Sashiko project hosts their Sashiko Exhibition to reiterated our condolences, to remember what happened. 

(Original English Announcement: The detail is on en.sashico.com | Sashi.co & Keiko Futatsuya)

*What is Sashiko?

 

The power of hand-crafting |

 

Otsuchi Sashiko Project had successfully created “a community” where survivors of Tsunami get together and practice Sashiko.

 

“We would like to deliver a fishing rod instead of a fish”

 

After receiving so grateful support supplies from in&out of Japan, we focused on how to bring them to “normal,” which seemed to be almost impossible. I don’t think we have brought them to “normal” but we are sure that we could help them physically and psychologically through Sashiko and hand-crafting. We surely see the power of Sashiko.

 

Every Sashiko items are all handmade.

There are similar designs, but they are all one of a kind Sashiko items, which is actually Sashiko art.

 

We are happy to introduce the Sashiko items in general public so people and touch, feel, and appreciate the precious works.

 

Sashiko Exhibition Flyer 1

Sashiko artist, Keiko Futatsuya, will be in the gallery on March 10th and 18th.

The manager of Otsuchi Sashiko Project will be attending the lecture and opening on March 10th.

It is an event in Japanese, but it is a rare opportunity to enjoy the actual & traditional Sashiko items.

I send a follow-up e-mail as soon as I get back to home. The process completes within 7 days at most. If you do not receive any e-mail from me, it is either the e-mail address I have is incorrect, or the e-mail got into your junk e-mail box.

For those who cannot take my Sashiko workshop

 

I know. I am so sorry that I do not travel to your city and offer the workshop.

My goal is to travel everywhere in the world to offer the workshop. As of now, for the location & travel time, only NYC is the availability.

If you are part of a large organization, such as quilting group or hand-crafting group, please suggest my workshop to them. I am happy to travel when condition meets.

 

Also, I am in the process of developing the Sashiko Online Workshop. The actual face-to-face workshop is the ideal, but I would like to offer the option of taking it online without losing the benefit of my workshop.

 

Keep requesting me so I know where I need to go in future.

As of now, I have areas in my list…

  • Many Major cities in West Coast of USA | WA, OR, and CA.
  • Philadelphia Neighborhood
  • Japan (Yes, interestingly)

  • Florida

I am happy to announce that I can offer another opportunity for Sashiko Workshop Basic & Core on January 13th & 14th in 2018.

In spite of many requests offer Sashiko workshop again, I thought I only could offer it in March at the earliest time. It is very fortunate for me (& anyone interested in Sashiko Workshop) to be able to offer the workshop in Tribeca, New York. Please consider participating our Sashiko workshop on this rare occasion. I usually offer Sashiko workshops 3 ~ 4 times a year. Don’t miss it!

 

Purchase your seat online

 

It is difficult to be in NYC on January 13th or 14th…? Please check our “Sashiko Workshop Schedule 2018” for other opportunities to meet/see us.

 

 

What you can expect in Sashiko Workshop Basic & Core

You will learn how to enjoy Sashiko Stitching from an actual Sashiko Artist. Since we started introducing our Sashiko techniques in 2012, some of the technique you will learn will widen your hand-sewing possibilities.

I created a landing webpage for our Sashiko Workshops. It summarizes what we do.

 

As I repeat saying this, there is no such a thing as “rule” in Sashiko Stitching.

There are, however, the technique and procedures which maximize the Sashiko stitching in terms of productivity, the beautiful result, and efficiency. We would like to share how we enjoy our Sashiko so that you will enjoy Sashiko more.

The Sashiko Workshop Basic & Core is the best way to start & re-learn what Sashiko is.

 

Happy Voices from the graduates

 

Since I made the workshop registration pages a few weeks ago, we haven’t received many reviews… However, we got all “hand-writing” good reviews and also great 2 online reviews. Here are some happy voices cited from online reviews. Thank you for those who left the reviews!

 

This was a great foundation for Sashiko beginners (techniques and a bit of history and purpose as well. Atsushi is warm, humorous and knows his stuff.

 

 

I really enjoyed the class. Atsushi was an excellent instructor. He demonstrated the proper technique and gave a lot of encouraging feedback on how we could improve or make the process even more efficient and comfortable.

 

 

Sashiko is fun way to appreciate fabric & mindful time

Our goal is to introduce what Sashiko is and pass it down to next generation. The more people enjoy Sashiko, the bigger chance we have to pass it down to our children & their children. Hand-sewing and appreciation to what we have is our foundation as a human being, I believe.

 

I hope to meet & see you in New York!

NYC Sashiko Workshop Schedule 2018

The Sashiko Workshops in Tribeca (in 2017) was a great success. I have received so many positive reviews, and I get so many requests to come back to Tribeca to offer another workshop. I’ve been talking to a great partner when would be a possible time to offer the next Sashiko Workshops. Here is a Sashiko Workshop Schedule 2018 in New York City.

 

A whole view of Sashiko Workshop Schedule 2018

Please register yourself for the workshops in 2018.

As of now, we are thinking to offer one workshop weekend in Spring, and one workshop weekend in Summer. I will most likely offer it in July or August, and possibly offer them in April depends on the needs. Please contact me if you are interested in taking the workshop in NYC, Manhattan Tribeca Area, in April. The more people contact me, the more likely to offer them in April, too.

 

Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Basic&Core)

 

Hitomezashi Sashiko Workshop (Advanced)

*Prerequisite: Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Basic&Core)

  • January 14th, Sunday, 2 p to 5 pm | 3 hours | Great success! Thank you.

 

 

So much Passion. So Grateful to offer the Workshop.

 

As you know, Sashiko has been part of my life.

It is so interesting to receive so much passion Sashiko. The Sashiko arts we create are getting popular, and I am so happy that the people would like to learn our technique and culture. Over the Sashiko Workshops in Tribeca, November 2017, we had a TV crew to film a short introduction of Sashiko in the United States. Atsushi will be on TV.

Be part of our Sashiko group (before Atsushi gets so busy… just kidding) by checking the Sashiko Workshop Schedule 2018.

 

Sashiko Workshop Schedule 2018 4

 

Always, the goal is to share the fun of Sashiko

 

Regardless of the popularity of our Sashiko art or Sashiko culture, the goal is always the same. “We would like to share the fun culture of Sashiko.”

In order to introduce what Sashiko is, we offer the free Youtube Video as well as the articles on this website. However, in order to “feel” the fun of Sashiko, participating the workshop is the best way.

Every time, we get more confident that what we offer can satisfy anyone who is interested in Sashiko, even for those who have some Sashiko experience already. There is no such a thing as “right” or “wrong” in Sashiko. However, there is techniques we developed over time to make it more beautiful, easy, and after all enjoyable.

Please consider our workshop as an opportunity to enjoy Sashiko more.

If you don’t know anything about Sashiko, it is the great way to start. If you already know about Sashiko, then it is a great way to add the technique and knowledge to your art-work.

 

Sashiko Workshop Schedule 2018 7

 

We had had more than 20 workshops in the previous year, with almost 100 people participated.

There are no negative reviews in our brief “after workshop questioner”. We are getting confident in what we do!!

 

Sashiko Workshop Schedule 2018 | Let us plan more

Since the instructor Atsushi is located in the central PA, where is about 4 hours of driving away from NYC,  we cannot offer the workshops every weekend (We wish we could!). In addition, Atsushi’s main role, for now, is to be a stay-at-home father. Realistically speaking, offering Sashiko Workshops 3 ~ 4 times a year is a reasonable amount to plan the schedule.

 

However, we are willing to offer as many workshops as possible. Even more than 4 times per year if there is a need.

In order to do so, we need a certain amount of participant in the workshops. We would like to know how many people in the East Coast are willing to join the Sashiko Workshops. Please share your passion by posting comments here and/or registering yourself to our mailing list with checking “Yes” to the workshop notification.

 

We are looking forward to meeting you!
