Believe it or not, I am an introvert. I am too shy to talk to someone whom I don’t know well… so I apologize for “just eye-contact & smile” when you found me in QuiltCon. It is true me on the stage for lectures or right next students in the workshop… but, from “natural standing point”, I still prefer stitching over going out for drinks with many people (unless they are okay with me bringing the stitching materials there).

Although I am not a dedicated quilter, QuiltCon has been like a home to me. Thanks to many Quilt Heros (in my mind), I got many chances to introduce myself. If you came to this Instagram Account recently, and you aren’t sure about what Sashiko is, please consider taking the “Introduction to Japanese Sashiko Stitching” Course on Domestika. Link is this: https://ift.tt/miQkL4v

Unfortunately, Sashiko introduced in English is simplified & romanticized. Therefore, I didn’t have any “recommendation” until this Domestika Course. Yes, the course is also somewhat “simplified”, yet it is a good “start” to understand what I am trying to do. Then, when they need further assistance, please consider taking the In-Person or [Core & Essence] Online Class. What I teach in QuiltCon & on Domestika do not really overlap. The QR code is on the 2nd photo, and the link is also available on the Story & Highlight.

なかなか信じてもらえないのですが、私は相当に人見知りです。内向的でもあって、一人でずーっと時間を過ごすのも苦手じゃないし、寧ろ大人数で騒ぐよりも一人で針を持っていた方が楽だと思う程には意識は内向きで。気がついたのは父親になってからで、それまでの30年間は結構無理していたんだなぁと。

基本、一人で完結するので、軋轢を生んでまで自己を通すことはあまりしません。一つだけ例外があって、「好きな人が求めていること」であれば押し通すだけの能力はあるんだろうと思います。刺し子を通して出会えている方々は、不思議なのですが、「学生(高校)時代の友人」のような感覚でお付き合いをさせて頂いています。オフ会も同窓会みたいな感じなんですよね。交流会とかじゃなく、初めて会う人もいるのに「同窓会」。誰かの為に動く時に出る馬力ってブレないんです。だから、もう少し頑張れるかなって。
