The Sashiko Face Mask we made in 2020, which I introduced on this account from scratch, is now being exhibited in ROM as a part of “Unmasking the Pandemic” Exhibition. It is a great honor to be part of this. Since it is difficult for me to travel to ROM now, they kindly send me photos. I also contributed some videos of my stitching to introduce what Sashiko is for the visitors. I made a video introducing this exhibition on Youtube. Please watch it!! ( And if you can make a visit to ROM, please let me know what it looks like!

I know. It is strange. If you follow me here for a while, you know that I do not consider Sashiko as Art (yet). At the same time, I do humbly accept the admiration for Sashiko as Art. Since ROM explained the concept of this exhibition, I was happy to contribute without feeling uncomfortable, just a bit strange to see Sashiko in the case. There are many reasons why I do not consider Sashiko as Art. Some are available on SNS, Youtube and Patreon. It is, also, my time to learn more about the “Art”. I have so many “memories (PTSD)” from my childhood to say out loud that what I do is ART.
