Event description
Over four weeks learn sashiko stitching skills, create three beautiful cushion covers, and establish a regular craft practice for wellbeing.

About this Event

Sashiko is a beautiful old form of embroidery from Japan and a wonderful introduction to the craft of hand stitching.

Cushion Club provides an opportunity over four weeks to learn sashiko stitching skills, create three beautiful cushion covers, and establish a regular craft practice for wellbeing.

In this weekly class you will learn the skills needed to get you started with sashiko. Topics covered will include:

• stitching technique with a long sashiko needle and thimble,

• how to prepare your threads

• how to draft patterns from scratch

• how to use chaco transfer paper

• an introduction to the history of sashiko and its relevance today.

A new cushion stitching pattern will be introduced each week over the first three weeks. We will draft the pattern onto fabric and begin the stitching which will be completed at home. There will be no pressure to complete the stitching within a certain time frame. This will be your stitching time to be enjoyed at your pace. The final class will provide an opportunity to complete your cushion covers and will include an introduction to hitomesashi (one stitch sashiko).

Sewing the cushion covers together is very simple, suitable even for beginners. If you do not have access to a sewing machine, Vicki will show you how to sew the cushion covers together by hand, or you can use the sewing machine available in class.

No embroidery, craft or sewing experience is necessary. Beginners are most welcome!

All materials will be provided.

The classes will be held every Tuesday 6:30-8:30pm for four weeks starting April 27th.
