Learn how to get started with Sashiko stitching in this beginner friendly online class. Join Claudia via Zoom as she walks you through what supplies you need for Sashiko, how to select the correct thread and how to stitch up your very own Sashiko sampler.
In this class, we will be working on the Olympus brand No. 212 pre-printed Sashiko sampler, but the skills you will learn will allow you to stitch up any pre-printed sampler. Some of the topics that will be covered include the No-Knot start & stop method, how to make Sashiko thread braids, and we will also discuss ideas for what you can make with your sampler once you have completed the stitching. You have the option of purchasing the class with a kit that contains all the basic supplies or you can use your own sampler if you prefer.
