It isn’t easy to speak up honestly in a big trend – sometimes, an honest voice can be perceived as negativity or even arrogance. It is always easier to get along the flow, but there are reasons I share the honest Sashiko Stories. It requires will-power to keep doing so.


I can keep sharing Sashiko Stories thanks to those who come to listen to what I teach & share. Live Session via Online Sashiko Class & In-person Workshops are the precious opportunity for me to thank directly to those who support what we do. This week is one of those. Feedback from new friends who took my workshop saying: “So much fun. Thank you for coming (offering the workshop)” override all of the difficult challenges I face. After so many years of Sashiko stitching & several years of  teaching, I am confident in what I can do & teach. It is my pleasure to share not only the techniques & design, but also the “Core & Essence” of Sashiko with them. ☆

7時間のワークショップ終わり。また写真を撮ってないことに気がついて(笑)多分ね、もう努力目標にすらしない方がいい気がする程、ワークショップが始まると全く他のことができなくなるのです。受講下さっている方から写真を頂いて、恵子さんの一目刺しジャケケットの試着画像です。

とても不思議な話なのですが、いい古布と草木染糸で刺し子をすると、日光の当たり具合により色が微妙に代わり、プリズム的な立体イメージを見ることがあります。実際には針目が立体になるわけはないので、目の錯覚というか、古布と草木染糸、各々の反射が輝いているような感じになるのだとは思うのですが、刺し子は日の下で見るとまた違った作品に見えてきます。そんな一枚。3日のワークショップ。明日と明後日で、あと14時間。まだまだ頑張ります!
