I decided to step out of my comfortable zone to protect my own identity. Only one way I found to protect is “to share” my own stories so that someone may receive & keep the Sashiko I have been living with. I was born with being “decided” to be the next heir of Sashiko Family Business, and I hated my fate from the bottom of my heart. In order to escape from this curse, I kept learning about it, and I still have been struggling to find out what I am facing. 

I teach Sashiko as a “condensed essence” of Sashiko: Core & Essence. Once they learn this core, other “how to” will be supplemental (as I share some tutorials on Youtube). As I wrote above, I share my Sashiko story to respect myself & what we have been through: which I didn’t want to admit to for a while. 

Anyone can do/teach/write/sell Sashiko. I know some people make my stories indifferent to the general ideas: After all, it is hand-stitching. However, I want them to know there are people’s lives in those stories. Sashiko is easy enough anyone can “teach” after spending a decent amount of time researching & stitching. However, Sashiko isn’t shallow enough to accept someone’s ignorance and indifference. I know we live in a world where “Instant Gratification” defines success, and even happiness. I probably do the same in non-Sashiko things. I am aware that what I do (Sashiko) seems to be somewhat indifferent to someone who values Instant Gratification. I share stories based on both struggle and gratification of my 30+ years. So, you are reading my stories of my life. It would be great if you could keep reading my stories, both here and possibly on Patreon. And, please help me out by spreading your words.

英語で刺し子を伝える。ビジネス面に集中したり、有名になることを目的にした場合、この英語圏での刺し子ブームにおいて僕がすべきことは、ひたすらフォロワーさんを喜ばせることなんだろうと思います。でも、僕は敢えて、耳障りが悪いことも書いています。気持ち良い言葉だけでは、伝わるものも伝わらない。ただ、時に僕自身が苦しくなります。伝わらないから。そりゃ好かれていたいのが人情です。届けても目の前で破られる手紙はキツイ。そんな時に見る写真が、昨日紹介した運針会ジャケットの刺し子だったりします。全く同じ気持ちでなんか居なくても良いんです。でも、針目見りゃわかるんです。あぁ、刺し子の楽しさはきっと伝わったんだろうなって。まだまだ先は長いですが、ここまできたらもう人生懸けての腐れ縁です。どこまでいけるかわかりませんが、最後の最後まで貫きます。
