I do not need to have a fancy meal. I just want to be able to buy Seasonal Fruits without checking the price tag. I do not want to drive a luxury car. I just want to let dealers handle the maintenance instead of shop around for the cheaper options. I do not wish to be an authority in Sashiko. I just want Sashiko to go through reasonable changes.

This “normal” became somewhat difficult in today’s society, especially for those “crafters”, or even “artists” who try to work with their hands. By choosing a path to be the artist, artisan, or crafter, without generous supporters & patrons, one may have to go through the challenging life. Why do they choose the difficult life then? It is because they like what they do – and more importantly, they have reasons for what they do. Sashiko may be just a trend for some of you here. It is perfectly fine to enjoy Sashiko as a trend. However, please learn that there are numbers of people who “have (had) spent” or “have been spending” a life-long practice. Their “opinion” matters. However, I am not here to discuss individual opinions. I am here to share (leave behind) so that someone with care will carry it on.  

明日(8/20)、日本語で「刺し子はアートか」なんていう仰々しいテーマを定めた配信を予定しています。日本時間の夜9時半頃開始で、1時間ちょいできたら良いかなぁなんて思っています。刺し子とはなんぞや……という、あまり語ってこなかった部分にも踏み込むと思うのですが、日本語での配信ということもあり、あまりキツキツな準備はしていません。幼少期からずーーーっと考えてきた刺し子についてのお話。真面目になればなる程、話が広がる気がしますが……できる限り焦点をずらさないように、楽しく語れれば良いなと思っています〜。
