On the Internet, we can find many discussions on “What is Sashiko”. Because of the nature of Sashiko, I prefer not to “define” the answer so easily. Instead, I try to share my Sashiko Stories to illustrate the bigger picture of Sashiko. Showing unedited & unmodified & un-hidden Live Stitching is one of my biggest commitments to pass down the Sashiko we practice. Yes, one can learn Sashiko with no secret if they is willing to learn by watching. The Sashiko Live Streaming is scheduled every Thursday at 9 pm EST.

I am invited to the Talk about [Cultural Appreciation & Appropriation] on Saturday Sep.9th (at 8 pm EST). My understanding of this issue is quite shallow… So I will be honest in the talk about what I feel about the issue related to Sashiko. For that, I would appreciate a comment & a discussion about this topic on my own platform as a form of “brainstorming” (when you make a comment, though, please watch 2 videos I share regarding Cultural Appropriation in Sashiko on my Youtube Channel first).

Sashiko is more than just stitching, design, pattern, meditation… a word in English describing what Sashiko is not wrong, but insufficient. The continuous talk is only one way I can find to pass down what Sashiko is.
