I am not kind to those who look for someone who prepares “a meal” for them. Some even expect me to spoon-feed them… I am not here to offer instant & momentary gratification to satisfy a one-time need. In Long-Term, it isn’t sustainable from a cultural perspective. Instead, I share the recipes, how to cook from cleaning the vegetables to how to “season” it, and where & what to buy to have the same meals we are preparing for ourselves & our friends.

When one wants to try to enjoy “it” for one-time, they can enjoy it however they want. However, when one wants to “represent (teach it on behalf of)”, then spoon-feeding to someone in order to meet someone’s requests can filter the culture.

Anyone can practice Sashiko as we do. As “cooking” is like magic to those who do not cook at all, yet ordinary for someone who prepares the meals everyday for their family, Sashiko can be very ordinary to me. I am NOT a chef in a fancy restaurant. I am just a “grandmother” who welcomes you to offer her favorite recipes (whom you may have in your memories). I respect both the chef and “grandmother” – both are essential pieces to preserve the culture. Therefore, I keep saying, “Sashiko introduced in English is NOT wrong, but insufficient” – one good way to learn more is to join the Live Streaming on (almost) every Thursday at 9 pm ET.





あっという間に週末!リズムというのは大切なもので、配信を終えて週の始めを感じ、配信を迎える所で週の終わりを感じます。世間一般の週末とは違うけれど。さて、昨年末の体調不良明けの数日で必死に準備した「刺し子な福袋2023」、もう少し残りがあるとのことです。恵子さんが今週末東京なので、上京から戻った時に最終確認をして販売終了とする予定です。数日の準備というのは私のウェブ上での販売ページやら文章書きやらのお話で、福袋そのものは恵子さんが2022年の一年を通して準備してくれたものです。「ふきんではない布に伝統柄を思いっきり運針をして楽しむ刺し子も経験して欲しい」という願いを込めた福袋もございます。毎年言ってますが、今年は日本語でも情報発信頑張ります!2/11の運針会もあと1席余裕がありますので、興味がある方は詳細をご確認の上、ご連絡下さいませ。福袋へのリンクはストーリーのハイライトから。運針会の詳細はプロフィール上のリンクからご確認ください。刺し子が好きな人、ガッツリ運針する刺し子に興味がある人と一層繋がれる一年にできたらと思っています。
