Product Details

[Update for 2019]

We are still working on the scheduling the Sashiko Workshop for 2019. As of now, we are finalizing the date on Nov. 9th and 10th. It may be the weekend of Nov. 2nd and 3rd. Either weekend, the time slot would be (1) 10:00 am to 1:30 pm and (2) 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm. The location is in TriBeCa (near City Hall Station - R.W. line).

Up on the request, I added the option to purchase the pre-paid ticket for the future coming Sashiko Stitching Workshop by Atsushi & Upcycle Stitches (3+ hours length Sashiko Stitching Workshop - Core & Basic - Offered & managed by Upcycle Stitches).

I will contact the person who has this ticket very first when the workshop schedule is finalized. (Then to the people in the list). The ticket will not expire, but try to activate it soon because it is difficult to anticipate the price raise in NYC. (I may ask for the extra if the ticket is activated a few years from now - just the difference of the current price and future price). The ticket is transferrable to someone. Once activated (redeemed) the ticket, then the date and time cannot be changed (still transferable to someone). Please understand that no refund for this ticket (but I will do everything to pass down what I teach in Sashiko Workshop - either Online or whatever we can work together.)

The pre-paid ticket is something I am a bit worried, but I gotta try. The worst case scenarios that I decided to stop offering the workshop in NYC, the ticket will be transferred to the Online Sashiko Class - or Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Basic & Core) offered by Atsushi & Upcycle Stitches anywhere I move to. I promise I will be honest and will do everything I can.

Please check our contact page to learn how to get the latest information if you prefer to wait for the final confirmation.

The price for the workshop is about $168.00 for 3 hours + α, (As of July 2019), in a very small group setting so the participants can get enough attention from the lecturer. The price listed now would be the one for the private workshop in the Central PA.

Atsushi proudly offer his well-reviewed workshop for Sashiko Stitching!

You can learn all about Sashiko basics including how to make beautiful stitches, how to hold a long needle and the unique thimble (Unshin - moving needle), and how to make your stitching more efficient and enjoyable. No previous Sashiko experience is needed. All the materials and supply is included to the workshop fee, so just bring your interest and passion.

Enjoy this rare opportunity to learn Sashiko from Sashiko Artist from Japan. The instructor was born in the surviving Sashiko family, and you will learn Sashiko from his traditions. (Atsushi lives in PA currently).

This is the great opportunity to learn authentic Sashiko. You will have an eye-opening experience in 3 hours of workshop. Although the workshop has the plus alpha time reserved, the actual workshop contents will be done in 3 hours of workshop. You may stay a bit longer or come a bit earlier to chat with Atsushi, if you want.

The previous participants provided us the feedbacks that they would have loved the extra time to stitch together. Therefore, the workshop length is listed as 3 hours + α. This will be a great opportunity to share your passion & love to the hand-stitching.


[Note about availability & possible price change in future]

The workshops for the weekend of 4/13 and 4/14 are almost full. I have only 1 spot left f or the Sunday @ 2 pm session. Due to the recent increase of the location fee where we offer the workshop at, I would need to increase the price in future workshop.

In this Sashiko Stitching workshop, you will learn how to use the unique round shape thimble and a long Sashiko needle by actually stitching the traditional Asano-ha (Hemp) pattern. The instructor, Atsushi, will demonstrate, explain, and teach you how to enjoy Sashiko stitching by actually showing and standing right next to you.

It is a basic Sashiko workshop, yet eye-opening for you to enjoy the Sashiko stitching more. The technique you will learn can be used in other projects such as Boro making project and mending with Sashiko fabric project.


The workshop comes with:

- Sashiko needles
