Makers & Shakers Art Party: Sashiko
March 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Sashiko, which literally means “little stabs,” is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching from Japan that started out of practical need during the Endo Era (1615-1868). Worn-out clothes were patched together to make warmer or new clothes using simple running stitches. Over time, elaborate designs were developed, all of which still only use the simple running stitch.
Makers 12 and up are invited to join Zann Liljegren in this month’s project. Beginners welcome! Choose a pattern and stitch. Finished products (about 4″ X 4”) make great coasters, small pillows or embellishments for other items.
Bring small scissors and a thimble (optional).
Project fee $5 (waived for middle and high school students), materials fee $12.
