Start Here – Learn Sashiko from Us
Please start your Sashiko Online Class by following the videos below after receiving the password in the welcome email from Atsushi. You will receive a class material pacakge soon after the welcome email. Please follow the sections from (1) to (3). You may need to watch the section.2 many times to get the “rhythm” I would like to pass down. Please keep trying & enjoy the section.3 with actual Sashiko stitching.
It is very normal to feel uncomfortable for the first few hours. In fact, I worry if you do not feel uncomfortable in learning the posture. Since the new posture requires the new muscle memory, it will take a few hours… or a few days of stitching to feel comfortable.
Please join the Live Session after a few hours of practicing regardless how you feel about the rhythm. I will be over the screen to offer the personalized advise to make your “rhythm” better.
[Update: May 24th, 2021]
Atsushi periodically make an update for the follow-up information. Please check the end of this article for more information.
- For the comprehensive follow-up, please visit the designated website for Q&A and Follow up. The link is at the bottom of this page.
- In a hot & humid room where you may sweat in your hands, the pattern may get weaken by the moist (since the pattern can be washed away by water). If you see start pattern getting weaker, please enhance it with the chalk pencil included in the package. Please do not wash the fabric before completing Sashiko.
Welcome to Online Sashiko Class Video
Online Sashiko Class Video Section.1
There are many information translated/interpreted regarding Sashiko. There is no such a thing as “The (Only) Sashiko”. Please learn what kind of Sashiko you are about to learn.
Online Sashiko Class Video Section.2 – Unshin
This section may give you an uncomfortable experience. Please do not give up, and keep praciticing the posture.
Online Sashiko Class Video Section.3 – Feel The Rhythm
With the posture & needle movement you have learned in the Section.2, I would like you to try to feel the rhythm of Sashiko Stitching. Please do not focus on making the even stitches. In fact, please focus on only the rhythm, and do not focus on stitching. When you work on the pattern, depends on the season & the tempreture and humidity of your room, the pattern may get weaker by the sweat on hands. In that case, please use a chalk pencil included in the package to enhance the pattern lines to keep stitching. Thank you.
The Live Session review will be available after this section.
