Since May 2019, I have been sharing many Sashiko Stories on this account. Since my goal was sharing, not so much “delivering the message”, I tried to write a new story everyday. I tried one story per day for a long time. 

I will keep sharing the stories. I won’t change my life. At the same time, I am realizing the importance/significance of “Delivering the Message”: Unfortunately, it is too late for me to just “share” the stories. There is so much “filtered information”, which causes several critical misunderstandings, and I need to re-repaint the “common sense” in today’s Sashiko. Otherwise, we may not be able to “raise” Sashiko artisans who can stitch this type of Sashiko Jackets & Pants. I do my best to pass them down in my class, yet the speed of trend is much faster & stronger than one individual can do. 

If you are new to this account, please enjoy each Sashiko Story here. Each day, I have something new for you to read, and then make you think. If you are a long time follower, could you please share the post which you remember the most? Or the Sashiko Story I wrote that most influenced you? It would be great if you remember which post (specific date), but the contents of the posts are good as well. Or even, just memories will help me to go through the ideas. I will try to repeat the stories in different way to describe the Sashiko Story. Thank you for your time, in advance.

「結果も効率も考えず、我武者羅に(僕が知っている刺し子を)伝える」ことを何よりも重要視して、このアカウントを継続しています。今後も方針は変えないのですが、同時に、「伝えたいことを伝えるための努力」をする必要もあると思うようになりました。それほどに海外での刺し子の人気と流行の伝播は早いものがあります。「結果と効率を考えて、伝えたいメッセージを繰り返す」ことにも力を入れていこうと思っています。

最近フォローを頂いた方。是非これまでの投稿とYoutubeに残っている配信等をご覧頂いて、僕が刺し子に抱いている思いをご覧頂けたら嬉しいです。長い間フォローして下さっている皆様、記憶に残ったり、それは伝えるべきだというような思いを抱いた僕の投稿があれば、是非教えてくださいませ。力強い物語からしっかり伝えていきたいと思っております。依頼を受けて、久々に日本語で長い文章を書きました。また自分のブログでも文章に残します。大好きな刺し子が残りますように。
