Sashiko means "little stabs" and is a Japanese style of hand embroidery. Beautifully intricate patterns are created with a simple running stitch using thick cotton Sashiko thread. Sashiko is great for beginning and advanced stitchers alike. Easy to learn and relaxing to do!
Pre-printed Sashiko samplers are make it easy to get started. Simply follow the stitch marks with a Sashiko running stitch and watch the pattern emerge. Samplers are printed using wash-away ink, which allows you to wash the sampler in cool water upon completion to wash away any stray markings not covered by your stitching.
