What's New Wednesday Recap - October 28, 2020

You can view all of the new items I talked about by browsing the New Arrivalssection of the shop. Here are the direct links to a few of the items I highlighted...

    • The Olympus Hitomenzashi Textbook (Not available for Retail sale, but here is the ISBN4939459649774, in case you ever come across one in your internet wandering) 

The Different Styles of Sashiko:

  • Moyozashi (Patterned Sashiko both Traditional and Modern Designs)

  • Hitomezashi (Single Stitch)

Hitomezashi

  • Kuguri-sashi (Stitch & Weave)

  • Kogin

 You can find the blog post that walks you through the order for stitching Hitomezashi designs here.

Hey there! I bought my first Sashiko sampler back in March or so and it really helped me get through some tough (not covid related) times. I was up after my babies were in bed stitching away and it helped quiet my mind. I’m looking forward to your content on the new YouTube channel!

I love sashiko! Last year, I saw a post on your Instagram of the kaguri-sashi and I was like… WHAT! So I got fancy rainbow sashiko floss and went to town. Now I have a fancy finish that looks like I’m next level fiber artist. I love the way you don’t have to stare at a screen or a paper pattern. You just jab that needle in through the pattern on the fabric and seeing the results appear so quickly is satisfying.
I shared this blog post with my local stitching club, so Austin, Texas will represent! Thank you for the opportunity!

Congratulations on the YouTube channel. I love Sashiko. However the couple of projects I have started are languishing as I feel there is an order to the stitching of the patterns that I have yet to master. My stitching is willy nilly but I feel like there is a methodology and purposeful order to the stitching. I’ll figure it out eventually. Slow stitching. Real slow stitching. Lol.
