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 Kaza Guruma 2 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, Sashiko stitching techniques, 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. The class will be recorded and you will have access to the video for 3 months following the class to re-watch. 

You have the option of purchasing the class with a kit or the Workshop Only and you can use your own sampler if you prefer.

- The Kaza Guruma 2 Sashiko Sampler

Sashiko 101

just took this class on-line. Was excellent. Claudia is a wonderful teacher. Her class is well organized, order of presentation logical, explanations are clear. Her teaching manner suits me...her voice is very pleasant, her presentation very natural and relaxed, and she answers questions throughout but manages to do it in a way that doesn't disrupt the planned flow. I'm going in today to sign up for the next two classes in the series.

Just a great class. I was doing some Sashiko without help but the class was so informative. It gave me confidence that I was on the right tract. Also, so motivational . Ms Claudia is a wonderful teacher. I enjoyed every minute of it and also being able to have the resources for later study. I love doing ornaments and patches from the smaller patterns & kits. You will never feel like you wasted money when you spend for these classes. Sashiko is the most calming needlework that I have ever done.

Claudia is an excellent teacher and I really enjoyed learning the history of Sashiko. I bought the sampler kit with the class and have found the needle work so calming. It’s very helpful to have access to a recording of the class for review.
I signed up for the 102 class right away.
