I very much appreciate those who left positive reviews in Sashiko Workshops in the previous QuiltCons – thanks to them, I can offer it again. I also appreciate those who signed up for the coming-up workshop

It is an honor to revisit & offer Sashiko Workshop & Lecture at #QuiltCon2024. It looks like Sashiko Workshop (Core & Essence) are full for now (Thank you!), but please keep your name on the waiting list as the availability can change often in such a big event like QuiltCon. For 2023~2024, I decided to focus on my own stitching rather than teaching – so this is one of a few opportunities I teach in-Person. I hope to meet/see you there in Raleigh, NC.

I also received a fortune to offer a Lecture again. QuiltCon is a festival for Quilting & Quilters – and in relation to Sashiko, the most popular question is “What is the difference between Quilting and Sashiko”? I don’t think any Sashiko Teachers have come up with concrete answers to that as they aren’t really “different”. However, by studying what Sashiko is from a cultural perspective, there may be a big of “categorization” I can offer as “difference”. Acknowledging this difference will be a great bridge between Appropriation to Appreciation, and I hope that understanding another culture will enrich their Quilting Creation. Lecture is on Friday night… which may be the time for participants to “party”, but I hope to share an interesting hour there.

Big Thanks to @themqg for organizing this! I will start preparing workshop & lecture so that I can offer the “very best” for the moment.





来年もまたキルトコンにて刺し子をお伝えする貴重な機会を頂きました。ほぼパニック状態に陥ってしまった講演も好評を頂いたようで、少しテーマを変えてお話させて頂くことに。私がお伝えできることは「刺し子」だけなので、いつかお役御免の時はくるのだろうなと思いつつ、申請を通して下さる限りは一生懸命お伝えしてこようと思っています。2024年キルトコンはノースカロライナ州の州都、ローリーでの開催です。

他のキルトのイベントに比べて、キルトコンには日本から参加される方があまり多くない印象ですが、自由に旅行ができるようになった今、日本から(あるいは世界に住んでいらっしゃる日本の方)のキルトコンへのご参加もあるのかなーと思ったりしています。もしご参加される場合は是非お声がけ下さいませ!ワークショップも講演も全編英語ですが、合間の時間でご挨拶させて頂くことは可能かなーと。日本語では「運針会」としてオンラインで刺し子で一番大切(だと思っている)なことをお伝えしておりますので、そちらもご検討頂けたら幸いです。

実は会場までの移動が車になりそうなのです(笑)。片道約800kmの運転になりますが、それでも飛行機を乗り継ぐよりは時間が短かったりして。田舎町に住むことのデメリットです。ただ、運転なので途中で配信等もできるかなと思っています。(800kmの迷子配信はきついので、ナビに頼りますが)。
