One of the reasons that the word of Sashiko gets spread is a slow-fashion movement with Denim Jeans Mending. I once put a distance from Sashiko, and Sashiko Mending brought me back to this field after a year of absence. Sashiko Denim Mending is one of my (Atsushi’s) passion and I still enjoy it. Here is a quick video of Basic Sashiko Denim Mending.

Here is a sample how it works.

Workshop of Basic Sashiko Denim Mending.
We proudly offer our first Sashiko workshop to work “Basic Sashiko Denim Mending” with you in 70 minutes. Atsushi will explain the basic of Sashiko history and will work with you as he worked in the video above. The participants will receive all of the supplies they would need to enjoy the basic Sashiko Denim Mending and the follow-up to keep enjoying it.
The workshop is offered as the part of pop-up, 75 Collective in NYC.
Make sure to register your seats for the workshop:
In order to maximize your Sashiko
The sample work of Basic Sashiko Denim Mending took about 50 minutes to complete, from cutting the fabric to the whole stitching. The core enjoyment of Sashiko is its rhythm and needle movement. Sashiko is all about hand-stitching, but it isn’t about making one perfect stitch. It is about making fabric repurposed.
In order to experience the whole picture of Sashiko, please consider participating in the Full-Length Sashiko Workshop, so-called Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Core & Basic).
Information & Tutorials Available Online
The joining the workshop & getting the instruction from Atsushi directly is the best way to enjoy Sashiko & Denim Mending. However, we understand that not everyone can travel to NYC for the workshop.
I will keep updating the website with more information & tutorials like below.
Your support would be very much appreciated. The best support is to spread the words that Upcycle Stitches is here to support anyone’s Sashiko. The next thing would be supporting me throughout being patron through web service (Being a Sashiko Patron).
Thank you & Enjoy Sashiko.
