I have a strong interest in Japanese textiles and crafts. I love the simplicity, beauty and quality of Japanese craft. One of these crafts is a form of Japanese embroidery called sashiko. The word means 'little stabs' and this is exactly how you make the stitches - little stabs of running stitch.
Kimono House has a great range of sashiko supplies.
My goal is to graduate from the kits and use the designs and patterns that are in the books 'Sashiko Style' and 'The Ultimate Sashiko Sourcebook'.
