I had a great talk session with @quilt.buzz. The episode is up on the air. As the interviewers learned what Sashiko is for us in advance of the talk session, the content is quite rich to understand what Sashiko is (for us). It may be quite different from what majority of people in English have heard about Sashiko – but this is one side of the stories & what it is, spoken by Japanese who have been actually stitching Sashiko for a while.

This may sound a bit arrogant, but I don’t think “Any Publicity is a Good Publicity”. The statement would be true when my goal is to get attention & monetize the flow. However, as my focus is trying to protect “Cultural Sustainability”, publicity has to be somewhat comprehensive. I agree that Culture Changes overtime. I just want it to be “Change”, not ignorance & indifference. Therefore, it is very important to know who is interviewing me. If an interviewer/writer/film-maker has their own message before they talk to me, then the stories will not be comprehensive – and end up encouraging ignorance instead of change. I really appreciate those who wish to learn Sashiko to have me for their media, and this “difficulty” is the reason that this account has so many posts, yet not so many publications on the 3rd party media. I am here, though. I am a real person with actual stitching as the ordinary. I hope you enjoy the podcast on Quilt-Buzz.
