I had the month of August as a “Workshop Free month” to focus on my Sashiko Projects. It was a very good opportunity and now it is about time to start another series of Sashiko Workshops. Here is a quick update of Sashiko Workshops September 2018.
Although I was about to advertise on this website before they are sold out, some of the workshops are already full, and some even have a waiting list. I feel very fortunate to have many people interested in Sashiko. I am looking forward to meeting you there, at each location.
A quick look for the Sashiko Workshops September 2018
Sashiko Workshop @ NJMQG
I offer the Sashiko Stitching workshop as the part of NJMQG workshop program. It was designed mostly for the member of NJMQG, and all the seats are sold out. If you are a part of Quilt Guild or other organization interested in Sashiko, please contact me for the “custom-adjusted yet traditional” workshop opportunity.
You may find the sample fee and structures on this blog post.
Sashiko Workshop @ Purl Soho
I offer the well-organized Sashiko Workshop at the beautiful crafting store in Soho neighborhood.
Purl Soho is one of a very few stores that carry our Natural Dye Sashiko Thread. I am so happy to share my experience and technique in the well-known store for craft lovers. (I received a new that the workshop is full and has a waiting list now. Please contact Purl Soho for the details.)
Also, check the beautiful thread that Sashi.Co & Keiko Futatsuya exclusively dyed for them with Indigo.
Sashiko (Introductory) Workshop @ Japan Society
Our goal is to share the beautiful culture of Sashiko. Yes, ideally, I would need at least 3 hours to teach you the technique to enjoy Sashiko as much as we do, I am very happy to share the introductory Sashiko and its culture to the many people who are related to Japan Society NYC, which has been a symbol of mutual understandings between the USA and Japan.
It is my honor to serve as a teacher to share some of the Japanese cultures.
(I found out that the workshop is full at this point and no waiting list…)
Sashiko Workshop & Stitching on Denim Workshop @ Tatter Blue Library
The last, but not the least workshop I have in September is with Tatter Blue Library. In this workshop, we focus on the Sashiko Stitching on the Denim. In the morning section, the participant will learn the basic and core of Sashiko Stitching. After a quick break, we all will work on the denim pants or jackets the participants bring.
It is strongly recommended to participate in both workshops in one day. 7 hours of intensive stitching experience will level you up to enjoy the Sashiko Denim Stitching on your own garment. Would you like to make a denim like a photo below? It is the workshop for you.
Registration Link: Please ask Tatter Blue Library for the detail
After Sashiko Workshops September 2018
Even after Sashiko Workshops September 2018, the workshop in 2018 continues. We are working on scheduling one Sashiko Workshop in October (Probably 10/13 & 10/14) in Brooklyn. One weekend of Sashiko Stitching Workshop (Core & Basic) in TriBeCa, NYC, November 17th and 18th.
Once we know the detail, we will introduce it first on Instagram, then a newsletter, then a blog post. Please follow our SNS account and subscribe the newsletter from the sidebar.
